Messi shows he does not approve of Martinez decision to insult Kylian Mbappe with doll
When tens of thousands of people welcomed Messi and his team to celebrate their Football World Cup victory in Buenos Aires Emiliano Martinez invited the wrath of fans for insulting Kylian Mbappe.
Martinez was seen holding and cradling a doll which had the French footballer’s face stuck on it.
TV show host Piers Morgan, who is not ready to forgive Messi for lifting the trophy against his predictions, instantly blamed the star footballer for his teammate’s actions.
“Why is Messi letting Martinez mock & humiliate Mbappe like this? They’re teammates at PSG, just so weird & graceless,” said Morgan who does not recognize Lionel Messi as one of the greatest footballers of all times.
Messi, however, did not include the photo of Martinez holding the doll in his Instagram post which contained several other pictures from the event. If this is not grace then what is!
Argentina’s World Cup heroes had to abandon an open-top bus parade in Buenos Aires on Tuesday as millions of ecstatic fans flooded onto the streets and brought the city to a standstill, with Lionel Messi and his team mates whisked into helicopters to complete the celebrations.
The players who were triumphant in Sunday’s World Cup final in Qatar were unable to reach the central Obelisco monument as planned because the route was completely blocked by the heaving crowd, estimated by local media at over four million people.
