Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez apologizes to Lionel Messi over jersey rant
Mexico City: World boxing champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez released a conciliatory sentiment to Lionel Messi on Wednesday after blaming the Argentine World Cup star for abusing a Mexican soccer pullover.
Alvarez took to Twitter last end of the week to vent outrage at Messi, saying the football star had “offended” Mexico by seeming to put his foot on an El Tri shirt on the floor of the Argentina storage space.
“Did you see Messi tidying up the changing room with our pullover and flag????” Mexican symbol Alvarez composed on Twitter.
“He would do well to ask God that I don’t track down him!!”
Alvarez’s eruption got quick reactions from those guarding Messi and guaranteeing the same old thing about a football shirt was being on the floor after a match.
Argentina captain Messi had traded shirts with his Mexico partner Andres Guardado.
On Wednesday, Alvarez, 32, apologized to Messi and Argentina, saying he had over-responded.
“I was carried away by the passion and love I feel for my country and I made comments that were out of place for which I want to apologize to Messi and the people of Argentina,” Alvarez wrote on Twitter.
“Every day we learn something new and this time it was my turn.
“I wish both teams much success in their matches today and will continue supporting Mexico until the end.”
Estos últimos días me dejé llevar por la pasión y el amor que siento por mi país e hice comentarios que estuvieron fuera de lugar por lo que quiero disculparme con Messi y la gente de Argentina. Todos los días aprendemos algo nuevo y esta vez me tocó a mí.— Canelo Alvarez (@Canelo) November 30, 2022
These last few days I got carried away by the passion and love I feel for my country and made comments that were out of place for which I want to apologize to Messi and the people of Argentina. Every day we learn something new and this time it was my turn.
