Lionel Messi’s post-match rant, slamming Netherlands star Wout Weghorst after the FIFA World Cup 2022 quarter-final went viral on social media. Messi, who was giving an interview to a journalist after the game, called Weghorst a ‘fool’ on camera, expressing his frustration over certain on-field matters pertaining to the Dutch team and the referee. “Que Miras, bobo? Que; Miras, bobo?… Anda para Alla”, Messi could be heard saying in Spanish after the match against the Netherlands. The comment roughly translates to, “What are you looking at you fool?”.
“Go there,” says Messi’s brother, laughing with Antonela as she imitated the Argentina captain. “What are you looking at, fool? What are you looking at?” she seemed to have said in the video.
“I feel disrespected by Van Gaal after his pre-game comments and some Dutch players spoke too much during the game,” Messi told the press. “Van Gaal sells that he plays good football and then he puts forwards in the box and starts throwing long balls. We deserved to go through and that’s what happened.”
