I have no problems with Messi or with anyone. Only it hurt to lose ”.

He seems like an excellent person. But it was not a good example, I have no doubts. As a professional gamer, that kind of thing can’t happen on the playing field. Sorry if I overdid myself, are things that happen in football. I have that humility to admit it. What happened will always stay with me ”.
