The former Egyptian Minister of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, has attacked the football superstar Lionel Messi by commenting “he is a moron.” Hawass is a world-renowned archaeologist, who showed Messi Egyptian pyramids during his recent ambassadorial trip to the north African country.
Spanish daily El Mundo, which has a prize-winning correspondent based in Egypt, reported respected Dr. Hawass told the TV station:
“I’m sorry to say it but he is a moron. I said it because when I was speaking to him, his face was like a stone.”
He further added: “I spent half an hour with him at the Pyramids. I think it was important to tell him about them because he has millions of followers throughout the world. It’s good for Egypt and for tourism. I don’t think he was at all interested. I didn’t see any interest in his face in what I was telling him.”
“Not even when I talked to him about the secret compartments inside the Great Pyramid, the monarchs who ordered the construction of the Pyramids or the Reign of Tutankhamun. I couldn’t see any reaction in his face. He was very polite but perhaps he’s only interested in football.”
Lionel Messi told a satellite TV channel after his visit: “I came here in 2007 but I couldn’t explore the Pyramids like today. Egypt is a country with a big history and I’m happy to visit it. It’s great to be at the Pyramids. It was a great moment when I entered the Pyramid and touched its stones. I have touched Egypt’s greatness.”
