The image of the captain of the Argentine National Team going up to the football Olympus in the World Cup in Qatar is still fresh in all Argentines... and in him too.

This Monday saw the light of day the first interview that he gave as world champion and acknowledged that...

"I always thank God. I knew he was going to give me a World Cup, I don't know, I felt it,"

Messi said, in a preview of the intimate chat with the host Andy Kusnetzoff on Urbana Play radio, which was recorded last Friday , in Paris, and will be broadcast starting at 11:00.

The backstage of the interview

"The truth is that December was very mobilizing for us. Sofía (Martínez) was at the World Cup, she had that opportunity to ask that question that went around the world, then came the story of Hernán (Casciari) that went viral and generated the Messi's own reaction, then I told him that I had surgery in December and I couldn't go to the final. All that happened in December"

, began his program

"Perros de la Calle"


Kusnetzoff traveled to the French capital suddenly last week, because he was on the Atlantic Coast with his program and his team.

"The truth is that I was doing a paperwork for my mother, who fell at Christmas, and I was trying to get a wheelchair for her. Marcelo Méndez (the Rosario press officer since 2014) called me, with whom he had been asking for a interview with Lionel some time ago, and he told me that with the energy that was generated they invited me to write the note to Paris"

, he explained.

The driver got on a plane with his family (his wife Florencia and his little children Elena and León), without knowing when the interview was going to be, because he had not had contact with the Albiceleste captain's entourage again.

"One doubted, it seemed too big to me and I didn't believe until I saw it

," he said.

What do I give Lionel?

A characteristic of the visits that Andy has made to Messi throughout his career is to give him gifts.

"I began to design a jacket, a pure sketch, which turned out well for me. It has three stars but subtle, it is not visible. I did not want to go empty-handed,"

he revealed.
