The Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski, revealed what was whispered in Lionel Messi’s ear during the match against Argentina in the 2022 World Cup.
The two players came head to head as the match began.
Messi wasn’t kind to see his shirt pulled by Lewandowski and joined Barcelona after the Argentine left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2021.
Lewandowski has now spoken about what really happened.
He told BILD: “We chatted a bit and it was fun.
“I told Messi he was playing more defensively than usual but sometimes that’s what a team needs.”
“It was very strange, yes: I was in midfield, defending, but I knew I had to help the team,” Lewandowski added.
