The honorary garment to Leo Messi was so important, they are offering $1 million for it
We’ve already explained how important the Bisht is for the Arab world, it’s the robe that the Emir of Qatar used to cover Lionel Messi before he lifted the World Cup for Argentina. This robe represents royalty, wealth, chivalry and wisdom, according to the Arab culture. It is likely the highest honor any person can he offered in that part of the world, and Messi got it. But this Bisht has awakened a sense of urgency to wealthy Arab people who want to collect it.
One Ahmed Al Barwani is a lawyer and a member of Oman’s parliament shot a massive offer for Leo Messi to consider. He wants to pay seven figures to get that garment to a proper display and collection for the world to see. But Messi is unlikely to give that back for money, he understands how massive this honor was to a foreigner and a person with no Arab cultural background. The more likely place where this Bisht will sit is the Leo Messi museum in his native town of Rosario. But despite this, the offer from Al Barwani still stands from a reliable person.
