Leo Messi's hint? "I will return to Barcelona, ​​this is my home" | Israel today


The flea who won the World Cup with Argentina in December, was interviewed by "Ola" and gave a look at his professional future, the chance that he will play in the next World Cup in 2026 and what he said to Kylian Mbappe after the final in Qatar

Leo Messi has been in a dream for over a month and a half.

The flea who won with Argentina in the World Cup in Qatar took off his shoulders the great pressure that was on him throughout his career and even though he has already managed to return to playing in the PSG uniform, he is still in euphoria.

Yesterday (Thursday) Messi gave another interview to the Argentinian 'Ola' and talked, among other things, about the celebrations after the win, about his professional future and his relationship with Kylian Mbappe.

 "It's hard for me to explain in words what I felt the moment I kissed the trophy, the emotion was immense.

I wanted it so bad, I was close.

I sacrificed a lot and there were difficult times, it was a beautiful moment," said Messi about the third win in the history of the Albiceleste, "Montiel's penalty?

They say that I spoke to my grandmother or Diego, I simply asked God to help him put it in and be done with everything."

On the photo with the cup in bed: "I slept a little, maybe an hour or two at most.

It was six in the morning, Rodrigo de Paul was in my room, the trophy was next to me and I don't even know how he got there, but he said 'come and I'll take a picture of you'.

He is very important in our team, always comes to work and gives his best, always wants more."

On the possibility that he will play in the 2024 Copa America and the 2026 World Cup, Messi said: "I don't know, I always said that because of age it seems difficult, I like playing football, I like what I do, and as long as I feel good, I will continue to do it.

But it seems that there is still a long time until the next World Cup.

I will repeat what I said, it seems difficult to me, but we will see how my career will progress.

I am currently on my way to 36 and what I will do next depends on many things."

On the conversation with Kylian Mbappe after the final: "We talked after the game, about the parties, how the people felt in Argentina, my vacation, and nothing else, it was fine.

It wasn't hard to talk about it, I was also on the other side and lost a final.

There is no problem with Killian, on the contrary."

On the criticism against Argentina: "I think it's unfair, some of it is not true.

No one gave us anything for free, we are talking about what happened against Holland, it all starts there.

They made provocations against us, everyone talks about what Argentina did and they don't talk about them."


Messi: "When I retire, I will return to live in Barcelona.

It's my home."

When asked what he kept from the World Cup final, the flea replied: "I have everything. The shoes, the shirt, the cloak I received. Everything is in the team's training complex, Marito (Argentina's businessman) kept it for me. In March I'm going to take all this to Barcelona, All my things and memories are there. After my career we will return to live in Barcelona, ​​this is my home."
