Lionel Messi reveals he’s being mocked for Liverpool vs Barcelona result – by his own son

Lionel Messi has revealed he’s being mocked for Barcelona’s Champions League defeat to Liverpool  – by his son.

Messi could only watch as the Reds came back from a 3-0 first leg deficit in the semi-finals last month to win 4-0 at Anfield and progress to the final in Madrid.

They, of course, went on to lift the trophy with victory over Tottenham last weekend.

“The other day we were at home playing and he said: ‘I’m Liverpool, who beat you’. The same with Valencia [who Barca lost to in the Copa del Rey final]. Or the same when football is on TV and he sees the goals of Madrid and shouts to annoy his brother.

“Mateo looks at me and challenges me. I tell Thiago things once and he does it without complaining. In the (national team) I find it hard to be far from them.”

“He’s watching TV and he screams goal for Real Madrid,” Messi added.

“He does it on purpose against his brother.

“Everyone watching Madrid, they score, Thiago gets angry, and Mateo goes ‘goaaaal for Madrid!’”
