“I had a conversation with Argentinian players in the tunnel”
In an interview given to Interia Sports, Szymon Marciniak returned to his refereeing style, but also to the final between the France team and Argentina. The Polish referee also made a strange revelation about his relationship with Lionel Messi. “Until the 2018 World Cup in Russia, I would describe our relationship as tough. I like to let the players play, I don’t stop the game when it’s not necessary, and I don’t think that suits him very well. (…) First of all, I see that he seems to appreciate me and to accept me, it seems to me. Even when I had a conversation with Argentinian players in the tunnel, he came first, asked what I was asking. »
“I think he bought into my style”
“I explained to him with a little help, because Leo does not speak English very well and he immediately gave some instructions to his players. In the second half, what I asked for worked. I think he adhered to my style. I also realize that we have been at a very high level for two seasons. There were no incidents. The players know it too, they feel it and it helps in the next games.”concludes Szymon Marciniak.
