Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has made an honest admission regarding his fitness ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The 2022 World FIFA Cup is set to kick off on November 20,
This year’s edition might be the last appearance for Messi in the world’s greatest sporting event.
Hence, fans will hope that the Paris Saint-Germain forward remains injury free.
Messi still has a host of games to play before flying to Qatar for the World Cup tournament as the packed schedule of European football continues.
However, the 35-year-old is not too concerned about protecting his fitness ahead of the World Cup.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner told TyC Sport:
“I think it’s complicated. There are many games and little rest time, but you have to face it as always. If you are going to play thinking about the World Cup, taking care of yourself or not messing up, in the end, it can turn out worse.
“I believe things happen because they happen, and if things have to happen, they will happen. God willing, nothing happens to anyone and we can all arrive as we are now.”
