Take a look at the bizarre post-game interview that got Lio so confused and annoyed that he turned around and walked off after question #1!
Right after scoring two goals in Barcelona’s 4-0 victory over Santos on Sunday, Lionel Messi was subjected to one of the most bizarre and awkward interviews we’ve seen in a while.
Messi was presented with a rather large gold key by Toyota after being named the most valuable player of the tournament and with the cameras rolling was brought into an improvised sideline-studio.
After refusing a coat, three Japanese hosts went on an endless rant in Japanese that Messi obviously couldn’t follow. The player looked confused and uncomfortable clearly unsure about where to stand or how to pose with his ample key, and once a question was finally translated, it caught the best player in the world completely of guard as it had to do with his plans after his soccer career.
Messi muttered his retirement date is still a long ways in the future and immediately made a sharp swerve away from the cameras and back into Spanish-speaking territory.
Watch the awkward interview below.
