Speaking to ESPN, Martinez insisted that he hugged Messi after the conclusion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup final and told him he loved him a lot.

The Manchester United centre-back said, “I found Leo and the first thing that occurred to me was to give him a hug. I think I told him, thank you, that I loved him a lot.”

He continued, “It is something unique, full of happiness. We have made many Argentines happy. We have changed their lives. It’s an enormous pride. When we arrived in Buenos Aires, we saw so many people celebrating. I never saw anything like that.”
