Argentina’s Central Bank is thinking about printing Lionel Messi’s image on the currency after the World Cup win.
According to reports, Argentina’s financial authority is thinking about making World Cup winner Lionel Messi the face of a 1,000 peso bill.
In actuality, he had a significant impact on the Argentina camp. According to El Financiero newspaper, the nation’s Central Bank is considering honoring Messi with a remarkable gesture.
According to the Mexican publication, Argentina’s financial regulatory body is considering how to celebrate its World Cup victory. Having Messi’s image on the $1,000 bill would be the preferred choice.
Why? because their star man’s shirt number, 10, appears at the beginning of the number.
The manager’s nickname, “La Scaloneta,” is reportedly going to be written on the note’s reverse.
El Financiero continues claiming that the Argentine Central Bank members “jokingly” proposed the idea.
However, the banknote design would “awaken the collecting spirit of Argentines,” according to Eduardo Hecker and Lisandro Cleri, one of the directors.
Messi has been rejoicing over Argentina’s World Cup victory for several days. Moreover, He was greeted with heroism when he arrived home on Wednesday.
Numerous people were chanting the name of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner as police and security attempted to lead him to his front door.
Messi would like to go to the 2026 World Cup, according to Lionel Scaloni. The host countries for the competition are Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
The manager said, “First and foremost, we need to save him a spot for the following World Cup in 2026.”
“He’ll be with us if he wants to continue playing. He has every right to decide what he wants to do with his career and whether he wants to continue playing for Argentina.
“It gives us so much joy to guide him and his teammates.”
“From the first person he meets to his teammates, everything is extraordinary and unlike anything, I’ve ever seen. Someone who puts a lot of effort into their team is a player.”
