WHAT HAPPENED? The 35-year-old said the performances on the pitch in Qatar were just part of the pleasant experience - and suggested he joined in with his team-mates in their mischievous antics throughout the tournament, all in good fun.

WHAT THEY SAID: "Obviously, being champions makes everything more beautiful, but what a beautiful month I had, how many beautiful memories I have and miss," Messi wrote on Instagram. "I miss my team-mates, the day to day with them, the mates, the talks, training sessions, the bullsh*t we did.

"What a beautiful madness we lived during all that time we ended up lifting the cup we all wanted so much."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Messi's sights are now set on bringing a Champions League crown to Paris Saint-Germain, and he'll team up with World Cup final opponent Kylian Mbappe to try and make that happen.
