Messi said – 2022 World Cup is the last for me

Speaking about his football future for the first time in an interview with Star Plus, Messi said that the next World Cup will be the last. Will this World Cup be your last? In response to the question, he said, ‘Yes, this will be my last.’

However, he has not disclosed whether he will retire from football or not.

After the Qatar World Cup, the next World Cup will be held after four years. By then Messi will be 39 years old. That’s why many people are speculating that he will not play the World Cup.

Regarding the World Cup, he further said, ‘Anything can happen in the World Cup. All games are tough. There is no guarantee that your favorite team will win. I don’t even know if we are liked or not, but Argentina will always be a contender because of their history.
