Gerard Pique spoke recently about Messi's epic World Cup win in 2022 with Argentina. Pique said that not only Spanish fans supported Argentina and Messi in the World Cup but also many other football fans. Pique said, "Not only in Spain but also football fans because everyone wanted Messi to win the World Cup that he deserved. All those who doubted that Messi was the best player in history because he missed the World Cup; I think those doubts no longer make sense."

Pique also believes he won the World Cup at the perfect time. Pique said, " Leo's presence for several years with Argentina, where most of the country supported him, but a small part of it doubted him and compared him to Diego [Maradona], made him reach the last World Cup with enough maturity to be the team's captain. Messi won the World Cup at the perfect time to appreciate it for what it is and because of all the suffering he went through throughout these years to lift the title."
