Lionel Messi was claimed to have been ‘forced’ to wear the Arabian ‘Bisht’ robe by the dignitaries present at the FIFA World Cup 2022 presentation ceremony. Messi seemingly struggled to put on the robe and was helped by the dignitary on his left, before Argentina were handed the FIFA World Cup 2022 title. Some users on Twitter have claimed that the player was forced to wear the robe. Check out some such claims below. Lionel Messi Is Officially The GOAT!

Making Messi wear that robe is absolutely grim. Sums up everything wrong with this World Cup

That robe Messi was forced to wear is the biggest presentation travesty since the time Howard from the Halifax got to hand out the SPL trophy.

‘Dumb Robe On’
Good thing we got the iconic moment of Messi kissing the trophy after getting the Golden Ball without that dumb robe on.

Every single photo in history of Messi lifting the world cup will be with him wearing that robe. They’ve achieved exactly what they wanted. Impeccably planned sports washing that.

‘Such a Joke’
Infantino slapping a robe on Messi and then almost lifting the trophy with him. Such a joke, and genuinely ruined the beauty of the moment

‘Robe Ruined the Moment’
Feel like that robe ruined an iconic moment of Messi lifting the trophy in his Argentina shirt…
