World Cup You don’t know Messi – Fabregas replies Canelo Alvarez. Cesc Fabregas, a former Spain international, criticized Canelo Alvarez for threatening to hit Lionel Messi.
In his criticism of Messi during their World Cup match on Sunday, Alvarez charged the Argentine captain with disrespecting Mexico.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup match between La Albiceleste and Mexico ended in a 2-0 La Albiceleste victory, and the Middleweight boxing champion alleged that PSG sensation Neymar threw the Mexico flag to the ground and wiped the floor with it.
A closer look at the video, however, revealed that Messi was only taking off his shoes after the match with the Mexican flag lying on the ground.
Canelo advised Messi to avoid interacting with him in public, but Fabregas, a former colleague of Messi’s at Barcelona, has since backed the Argentina captain.
Fabregas posted on Twitter, “You neither know the guy, nor do you understand how a locker room works, or what occurs after a game.”
Fabregas, a former player for Arsenal, Chelsea, and Barcelona, continued by stating that after games, players typically leave their jerseys on the ground before having them picked up for washing.
Now, Messi and his colleagues will try to defeat the Robert Lewandowski-led Polish squad in their upcoming match in order to have any chance of moving on to the World Cup’s knockout rounds.
