| Last updated
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi went viral on social media after footage emerged of his reaction to a journalist’s passionate plea.
Messi secured one of the major trophies that had alluded him in his glittering career in 2022 after leading Argentina to the World Cup trophy in Qatar.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner scooped the Golden Ball award at the tournament after Argentina’s thrilling penalty shootout win over France.
Messi has vowed to continue playing for Argentina, despite winning both the 2021 Copa America title and the 2022 World Cup trophy with his country.
Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni has also reiterated that there will be a place in his squad for Messi at the 2026 World Cup in North America.
During an interview with Argentine newspaper Ole in Paris this week, Messi was left with a cheeky smile on his face after one of the interviewer’s words of encouragement.
Following the end of their conversation, the enthusiastic interviewer told Messi: “Well, Leo, let’s go for more…”
Responding to the interviewer, the World Cup-winning Argentine said: “There’s nothing more!”
The reporter then replied with calls for him to win the Champions League with PSG and back-to-back Copa America trophies with Argentina.
“The Champions League and Copa America are coming,” he told Messi.
Entertaining the idea of lifting the Champions League and Copa America again, Messi said: “Yes, yes, yes… always for more.”
One fan said in response to the footage: “He is done. Won’t be surprised if he goes farming in Argentina, leaving football. Living peacefully.
Someone else commented: “I love this so, so much. He’s just so happy. Done. Just chilling. At peace. Best happy ending ever.”
“He doesn’t care anymore, he knows that he completed football in the best way possible,” one Twitter user added.
A fourth fan wrote: “He completed this sport in the most dramatic, emotional way, the most complacent footballer ATM. But I wish for a last dance with Pep [Guardiola].”
And a fifth said: “Messi knows he has completed the sport.”
