Messi starts pre-season by playing beach football against kids
- Messi is currently on vacation in the Caribbean.
- He is expected to be back at Barca only in August.
- Leo took advantage of his holidays to play a bit of beach football.
Lionel Messi is currently enjoying his well-deserved rest at the exclusive Jumby Bay Island resort in Antigua, the Caribbean. He only took his closest family members with him: wife Antonella and three sons, Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.
Nonetheless, it seems like our captain can't spend a single day without a football at his feet. As such, the 32-year-old has been spotted playing beach football with a bunch of kids. Judging from their appearances, it seems like only one Messi kid took part in the game, it isn't clear who the rest are. Perhaps, it could be just someone Leo bumped into.
Lionel is set to return to Barcelona and start his pre-season with the team only in August, as he is still on holidays following the 2019 Copa America. Four other Barca players will join the rest of the squad on the same day as the Argentine: Arthur, Philippe Coutinho, Arturo Vidal, and Luis Suarez.
Do you think Messi could become a beach football legend once he retires?
