The Argentine ace scored a goal for PSG in their clash against the Saudi All Stars, but his gesture after leaving the pitch was the true moment everyone talked about.

When all eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as they played what could be the final game against each other, Messi found a way for fans to speak about something else with his gesture aimed at the Saudi All Stars coach, Marcelo Gallardo.

The Argentine boss has always praised Messi for his contribution to Argentine football, but those words have increased after "La Pulga" led La Albiceleste to the World Cup title a month ago. Gallardo has been mentioned as a potential coach for Messi both at Barcelona and PSG, following his stellar stint at River Plate.

Moments after leaving the pitch, Messi was heading to the bench but decided to take a detour to say hi to his compatriot. Both shared a few words while embracing, in what was certainly an emotional moment for them and for Argentines around the world, as both of them are considered iconic footballers in that country's history.
