Messi, mocked by his kid over UCL elimination

Messi admits being mocked by his own son after UCL exit

June 5, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
'La Pulga' shared a few details of his private life in an interview with an Argentinean TV network.

If fans thought that mocking Lionel Messi had an effect on him, the player's revelations to TyC Sports will make them realize he is used to those gestures...even if they come from within his family.

The Argentine player gave a candid interview to the aforementioned TV network, where he discussed how his children cope with the fact that their dad is one of the most famous footballers in the world.

While Messi had previously spoken about how his oldest son, Thiago, is a diehard Barcelona fan, the same cannot be said about his second kid, Mateo. In the interview, the superstar shared how Mateo mocked him over his recent losses with Barcelona, and how he also gets on his brother's nerves by celebrating Real Madrid's goals in front of him.

"A couple of weeks ago we were playing around in our garden. He came up to me and said 'OK, we'll play football. I will be Liverpool, because they are the ones that beat you'," Messi recalled. "He did the same thing after the game against Valencia. He is not that aware, he just haves fun aiming digs at me," the footballer added while laughing.

But Messi is not alone when it comes to being mocked by Mateo, since the kid also likes to aim digs at his oldest brother, Thiago.

"I don't know where he took that from, but he also does that to his brother. He goes on and if a game featuring Real Madrid is on and they score, he celebrates it in front of Thiago, he makes him go nuts," Messi added.

The Argentine ace is getting ready to play the 2019 Copa América with La Albiceleste, where he will try to end a 26-year-drought without a title for the senior team.
