Argentine star Lionel Messi‘s hotel room in Qatar, where he stayed during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, will be transformed into a museum as announced by Qatar University on Wednesday. Messi and Sergio Aguero shared a room near the end of Argentina’s victorious World Cup campaign. The room will no longer host visitors, GOAL.com quoted Qatari news agency QNA. Instead, it has been reported that there are plans to turn the space into a small museum, with the Paris Saint-Germain star’s possessions being preserved in all their splendour for other students and tourists.
“The room of Argentina national team player Lionel Messi will remain unchanged and will remain available only for visitors and not for residents. Messi’s belongings will be a legacy for students and future generations and a witness to the great achievements Messi has reached during the World Cup,” said Hitmi al Hitmi, director of communications and public relations at Qatar University, GOAL.com quoted Qatari newspaper Al Sharq.
Argentina won their third World Cup and Messi’s first of his career after a stunning triumph over France in the 2022 championship game. His club manager, Christophe Galtier, acknowledged the joy of reaching such a significant milestone, but he also announced that the 35-year-old will not appear for PSG until mid-January.
