Among the many indelible images of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar there is certainly that of Leo Messi who… shows his ears to Louis Van Gaal during the very tight match between Argentina and the Netherlands. In fact, La Pulce wanted to tease the Dutch coach, who before the match had underlined how in 2014, when the two teams met in the semifinals, the Albiceleste’s number 10 had practically not touched the ball. This time, however, Messi was the protagonist, first with a remote-controlled assist to Molina and then with the penalty of the momentary 2-0 and he wanted to make fun of Van Gaal with that gesture, also remembering… Riquelme. Yes, because that was the exultation of Mudo, who had problems with the coach at the time of Barcelona.
Never make Messi angry…
Therefore, it was only a matter of time before Riquelme himself decided to talk about that very particular exultation of Messi. The former number 10 of the Argentine national team did it on the microphones of TyC, explaining that after all the Dutch… went looking for her. “I think Van Gaal said something he should have avoided saying. There are things in football that you shouldn’t do. And one is to make Messi angry. It’s better to hug him, kiss him, so that he doesn’t want to beat you.

The relationship between the two
Therefore, Riquelme was doubly happy, also because Messi demonstrated… that he had thought of it by going to fish out his exultation to mock Van Gaal. And the vice-president of Boca spoke of his relationship with La Pulce. “Leo knows I love him very much, we talk sometimes. I don’t bother him too much, but we have a really good relationship. In Qatar, I only wrote to him when we lost the first match and then when we won the final. But I I always said, as long as Messi is on the pitch, Argentina will always be favourites. He loves competition, he plays football as he would on a pitch in the street. When he plays, it’s wonderful.” As much as that exultation…
