Following the much-publicised birth of Lionel Messi’s first child – a boy named Thiago (the new Messiah) – last week, we all wondered how the little man (Leo, not Thiago) would celebrate when, as expected, he scored against Celta Vigo.
But crazily, Messi actually failed to find the net in the Catalans’ 3-1 win, a disappointment give that the above image suggests he had a ‘dummy’ shoved in his sock in preparation
Clearly the emotion of the last few days and frustration at keeping the dummy under wraps proved too much, as Leo lashed out at a Celta Vigo defender leading to uncharacteristically ugly scenes involving the 26-year-old superstar.
