Canelo continued by saying that Messi, regardless of his status, must respect the Mexican flag before delivering a threat.
“He’d better pray to God that I don’t find him,” he added.
“He has to respect Mexico just as much as I appreciate Argentina!” I’m not talking about the country as a whole, just the nonsense Messi did.”
Messi has yet to respond to Canelo’s claims, but Argentine fans have rallied to his support following Canelo’s warning.
Despite the loss, Mexico still has a chance to go to the knockout stage, while Argentina confronts a similar position.
Messi returns to play when Argentina faces Poland’s Robert Lewandowski, while Mexico faces Saudi Arabia in the following group matchup on Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
