2022 World Cup ‘Rigged’ To Help Messi, Argentina win, Says Luis Van Gaal

In the world of football, controversy and conspiracy theories occasionally surface, and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar was no exception. Former Dutch national team coach Louis Van Gaal recently made headlines by suggesting that the tournament was “rigged” to favor Lionel Messi and Argentina. In this blog post, we will delve into Van Gaal’s allegations, the evidence (or lack thereof) to support them, and the broader implications of such claims on the sport.

Louis Van Gaal, a seasoned and respected figure in football coaching, made the bold assertion that the 2022 World Cup was “premeditated” to facilitate Argentina’s victory. He raised concerns about various incidents during the tournament, including questionable goals and perceived leniency towards Argentina players who committed fouls. However, it’s crucial to emphasize that these allegations are Van Gaal’s personal opinions and have not been substantiated by concrete evidence or official investigations.

Speaking at the Eredivisie awards on Tuesday night, the 72-year-old told Dutch outlet NOS that the tournament was made for the Argentine team.

‘I don’t really want to say much about it. When you see how Argentina gets the goals and how we get the goals, and how some Argentina players overstepped the mark and were not punished, then I think it all premeditated game.

“I mean everything I say. That Messi should become world champion? I think so, yes,” Van Gaal said.

It should however be noted that Messi scored a brace in the finals as Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties.
