World Cup Was Rigged To Help Messi Win The Trophy In Qatar, Louis Van Gaal Claims


Former Netherlands coach, Louis Van Gaal, who resigned as head coach following the Netherlands’ World Cup exit, has claimed that the World Cup tournament in Qatar was rigged so that Messi could win the trophy.

When asked to reflect on the World Cup in Qatar, he told Dutch outlet NOS: ‘I don’t really want to say much about it. When you see how Argentina gets the goals and how we get the goals, and how some Argentina players overstepped the mark and were not punished, then I think it all premeditated game.’

Van Gaal was speaking at the Eredivisie Awards on Tuesday, where he was recognised for his contribution to Dutch football.

After journalists asked the 72-year-old to clarify what he meant, the former boss said: ‘I mean everything I say. That Messi should become world champion? I think so, yes.’
