World Cup: You don’t know Messi, says Fabregas. Alvarez Canelo

Cesc Fabregas, a former Spain international, has slammed boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez for threatening to beat up Lionel Messi.

Alvarez had slammed Messi, accusing him of disrespecting Mexico following their World Cup match on Sunday.

The Middleweight boxing champion claimed that the Paris Saint-Germain superstar wiped the floor with the Mexico flag after La Albiceleste defeated Mexico 2-0 in a crucial Group C match at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

However, a clearer view of the footage showed that Messi was simply taking his shoes off after the game with the Mexican flag on the ground.

Canelo said that Messi should avoid coming in contact with him in public but Messi’s former Barcelona teammate Fabregas has now defended the Argentina captain.

“You neither know the person, nor do you understand how a locker room works or what happens after a game,” Fabregas wrote on Twitter.

The former Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona star, Fabregas went on to explain that players put all shirts on the floor after games and that the shirts are usually picked up for washing afterwards.

Messi and his teammates will now hope to beat the Robert Lewandowski-led Polish side in their next game to stand any chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the World Cup.
