Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina, has adamantly denied disrespecting the Mexican people or their national football team’s uniform.
Messi made this statement after Canelo Alvarez, a multiple world boxing champion, apologized to him for accusing him of using a Mexico jersey to mop the floor after Argentina won the World Cup.
On Wednesday, Alvarez apologized to the Paris Saint-Germain forward and admitted his error.
The Mexican fighter sent an apology to Messi and the Argentine people after becoming overly passionate and patriotic.
Lionel Messi explained to the aggrieved fans of Mexico:
“These last few days I got carried away by the passion and love I feel for my country and I made comments that were out of place. So I want to apologize to Messi and the people of Argentina.”
Messi confirmed that he does not need to repent because he did not disrespect Mexico when commenting on the situation following Argentina’s 2-0 World Cup victory over Poland on Wednesday night.
The Paris Saint Germain star revealed:
“I saw that he spoke now, but I think it was a misunderstanding, those who know me know that I don’t disrespect anyone. I don’t have to apologize because I did not disrespect the people of Mexico or the shirt or anyone.”
