The Argentine football legend Lionel Messi has been threatened by the Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez, a multiple-time World Champion. This new drama occurred due to the savage celebrations done by the Argentine national team after their win against Mexico.
A video has been making quite a few rounds on social media platforms, which show the 35-year-old Messi disrespecting the Mexico jersey. It is shown in the video that Messi steps on the Mexican jersey, which is a sign of utmost disrespect that can be portrayed for a particular nation’s team.
Argentina versus Mexico concluded with a 2-0 scoreline tally in a desperately needed victory for the Argentine front to keep themselves in the race to qualify for knockouts in the Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022.
The well-deserved victory against the Mexicans sparked some amazingly wild celebrations in the Argentine dressing room, where Lionel Messi was visibly seen shirtless and jubilantly celebrating his victory, which was also possible because of his goal that broke two records and equalized him with Cristiano Ronaldo and Maradona.
The over-the-top excited Messi had stomped and kicked the Mexico jersey as he was being carried away in his celebrations with his teammates.
Among several fans who frowned upon Messi’s actions was the Mexican boxer Alvarez, who has taken to Twitter to rant out his emotions of anger and frustration on the iconic footballer. The bitter defeat because of him might also have added some slice to the spice of the Mexican.
The World Champion tweeted to his audience that the Argentinian megastar should pray to God that the Mexicans don’t find him. Alvarez also went a mile ahead to let everyone know that he respects Argentina and Messi should also return the same to Mexico.
Boxer Alvarez fumes his anger on social media
“Did you guys see Messi cleaning the floor with our jersey and flag? He better pray to God that I don’t find him.”
“Just like I respect Argentina, he has to respect Mexico! I’m not talking about the country as a whole, just about the bulls**t that Messi did,” said the Mexican boxer Alvarez.
Whatever the case, the world’s most humble footballer does not deserve the hate this clip is stimulating against him. This, most likely, was an accidental occurrence that the legend was unaware of at the moment, as he was visibly occupied with celebrations.
The fact remains that Messi’s shoulders have been up to a mark unburdened after their much-needed victory against the Mexican front, as this gives the South Americans a fighting chance to grip their position in the World Cup.
