Lionel Messi may be the most iconic footballer our generation has seen and has a whole fanbase ready to argue in his favour.
Individually, Messi’s season was no less than extraordinary, finishing with 51 goals in 50 matches in all competitions.
Though it is obvious for Messi & company to try and forget the debacle at Anfield, which was Roma-like in all aspects, the little Messi (just out of his diaper days) was not ready to give his dad this luxury.
Speaking to TyC Sports, Messi said:
Mateo loves football, he wears all the shirts. But we played together at home he told me, ‘I’m from Liverpool… they beat you’, he also did it with Valencia [after the Copa del Rey final]… ‘Valencia beat you, I’m from Valencia’.
If that’s not all, he added:
When we’re watching TV he will cheer Madrid’s goals to annoy his brother, he is the one who is a Madrid fan.
Here’s the video of the same conversation:

Is that the three-year-old’s sense of humour or is he going to become a Madrid fan? Whatever it may turn out to be, right now the kid’s actually bossing his dad, who is best known to boss the world.
