Lionel Messi’s relationship with his children is precious and even more so since his arrival at Inter Miami, where the sporting demands are not the same as in European soccer.
The World Cup winner has been seen in several training sessions with his little ones, who have shown flashes of their talent on the pitch.
On Thursday, images surfaced on social media in which Messi could be seen with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and their three children celebrating a birthday occasion.
It is common to see the iconic No. 10 out in public, whether it’s shopping, training or heading out for a night on the town for dinner.
But this time it was because Thiago, Leo’s eldest son, had been invited to a birthday of a teammate from the Inter Miami soccer school.
The Argentinian star wanted to be present with his wife and the 36-year-old was the star attraction for the rest of the children. The guests then appeared and were seated on a small bench before being shown inside a 5-a-side soccer pitch, where everyone posed with the captain.
Lionel Messi arrives with a gift: himself
One photo showed Messi walking on the parquet floor towards the children, who were waiting excitedly to meet him.
Soccer fans on social media were quick to react, pointing out the classy gift that Messi brought with him.
“But look at the gift bag. It must have the full line of Paco fragrance,” one user said. Another wrote: “I’ve never seen a person less excited to see Messi than this baby. He didn’t deserve it.”
Others wrote: “You can tell they are American kids. Here the calmest child starts crying on his knees on the floor. They must not even know in which continent Messi was born.”
Days later, Messi jetted off to Saudi Arabia to take part in a series of friendlies, losing 4-3 to Al-Hilal after scoring along with Luis Suarez.
