Fans think Lionel Messi was 'ignored' by David Beckham in meeting and it's so awkward to watch

Some fans think Lionel Messi was ignored by David Beckham after the two pair of footballing superstars linked up at Paris Saint-Germain's training ground.
Former England captain Beckham spent time in the French capital this week and returned to his former team, who he played 14 times at the very end of his glittering career.
He met with Christophe Galtier's star-studded squad and posed for pictures with the likes of Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Sergio Ramos and Marco Verratti - the only surviving player from when Beckham plied his trade at the Parc des Princes.
Beckham spoke with staff members at the Camp des Loges facility and took a picture from the entire PSG squad ahead of their clash with Lorient on Sunday.
The Manchester United legend was also presented with a shirt containing his name and the No.32 - the exact number he sported at the club.
But while Beckham was all smiles next to Messi, who has been linked with a move to his MLS franchise Inter Miami, some fans have spotted what they believe to be an awkward moment.
Just before Beckham was snapped with Messi and Verratti, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner had his hand out and one claimed he was going for a handshake that did not arrive.
"I love how Beckham ignored Messi’s handshake," he wrote.
But another fired back, writing: "You have to be blind to see that it’s not a hand shake. He’s pointing towards the camera for the picture."
However, it should be noted that a second video shows Beckham telling Messi "Congratulations" and the pair sharing a warm embrace.
The 47-year-old has regularly waxed lyrical about the Argentine ace and once said, "I probably decided to retire when Messi was running past me".
Beckham only had a short-term deal with PSG and donated his entire wages to a local children's charity. His final game was on May 18th and he received an emotional send-off when subbed off in the 81st minute of his last ever game.
