“As A Human Being, I Would Like Them To Lose All 3 Games” – Argentina Captain Lionel Messi’s Doctor Explains Why He Would Not Want His Country To Win The FIFA World Cup

“As a human being, I would like them to lose all 3 games” – Argentina captain Lionel Messi’s doctor explains why he would not want his country to win the FIFA World Cup

Dr. Diego Schwarzstein, who played a fundamental part in kickstarting Lionel Messi ’s footballing career, has admitted that he wouldn’t want his country, Argentina , to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup .

Schwarzstein successfully treated Lionel Messi after he was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) as a nine-year-old. Four years after his treatment began under Schwarzstein, Messi was recruited by Barcelona

(2001). Before leaving, he gifted his doctor a signed Newell’s Old Boys jersey, which read “For Diego, with love from Leo Messi.”

Messi has not forgotten his doctor, with him inviting Schwarzstein’s son to the Barcelona dressing room a few years earlier. Despite sharing a great relationship with the Paris Saint-Germain man, a part of Schwarzstein does not want Lionel Messi to win the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Schwarzstein feared that the government would use Argentina’s success as a cover-up and make drastic decisions when the country wasn’t looking.

Speaking to The Times

, he explained:

Under Argentine president Alberto Fernandez, inflation in the country has reached a staggering 83%, with banks regularly running out of money. Schwarzstein claimed that the current crisis the country was going through was by far the worst he had seen.

He added:

Argentina, who are placed in Group C alongside Saudi Arabia, Poland, and Mexico, begin their journey with a clash against the Arabs on 22 November.

The FIFA World Cup Golden Ball is awarded to the best player over the course of the tournament, making it a highly prestigious accolade. While Lionel Messi is yet to kick the ball in Qatar, it would not be wrong to dub him an early favorite for it.

Lionel Messi comes into the tournament in great form, with him scoring 12 goals and claiming 14 assists in 19 games for PSG in the 2022-23 season. He also looked razor-sharp in Argentina’s final preparatory match against UAE on 16 November, scoring once and claiming an assist.

If he can keep up the good work and take La Albicelste deep into the tournament, he could end up winning the FIFA World Cup Golden Ball for the second time (previous win: 2014). No player in FIFA World Cup history has won the Golden Ball twice.
