‘You’re slightly over-egging the gloating soufflé now’ – Piers Morgan hits out at Lionel Messi after flurry of celebratory social media posts following historic World Cup victory with Argentina

    Piers Morgan has told Lionel Messi to stop gloating following a series of celebratory World Cup posts on social media.

    The Argentine star was the main man on Sunday as he guided his country to a first World Cup in 36 years following a classic encounter with France in Qatar.

    Messi’s happiness has been clear to see as he posted a picture of him sleeping with the World Cup trophy

    Messi finally got his hands on the coveted World Cup trophy

    Winning by penalty shootout following a pulsating 3-3 draw with Didier Deschamps’ side, Messi led Argentina’s celebrations post-match as he lifted the trophy and cemented his status as one of the greatest players of all time.

    While football fans all over the world rejoiced that the 35-year-old had now completed the ultimate set of football prizes, TalkTV host Morgan wasn’t impressed.

    A long-time advocate that Messi’s rival Cristiano Ronaldo is, in fact, the greatest player of all time, Morgan wasn’t impressed after taking a look at the Paris Saint-Germain star’s Instagram to see a flurry of celebratory posts.

    Taking to Twitter, Morgan wrote: Okay, Lionel. We get it, you won the World Cup.

    “You’re slightly over-egging the gloating soufflé now…”

    There’s little debate now that Messi is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time

    Among the posts are one of Messi sleeping with the World Cup trophy, as well as a picture that is now the most-liked Instagram post of all time.

    With Messi front and centre of a huge victory parade in Buenes Aires as well, I’m sure that the Argentina superstar won’t be too worried by Morgan’s apparent criticism.
