Lionel Messi Hilariously Admits His Son Makes Liverpool Jabs When They're Playing Football

Lionel Messi Hilariously Admits His Son Makes Liverpool Jabs When They're Playing Football

Mateo Messi Roccuzzo isn't afraid of getting one over on his dad after Lionel Messi admitted that his son enjoys poking fun at him.

Speaking to TyC Sports, the Barcelona captain said that his three-year-old son likes to remind him of his side's second-leg loss to Liverpool in the Champions League.

"We were playing at home and we're going for a kick-about. Mateo said to me: 'You're Barça and I'm Liverpool, 'cos I'll beat you.' He's got a lot to learn," he said.

Amazing, right?

Well, Mateo isn't done there.

Arguably the biggest windup merchant of the Messi family, Mateo doesn't pass up the opportunity to annoy one of his brothers, Thiago Messi Roccuzzo.

That's right, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner said Mateo will cheer on Real Madrid to irritate Tiago.

"Sometimes the telly is on and he cheers Madrid's goals. My son Tiago gets annoyed and Mateo cheers them to annoy him," he explained.

The Argentina captain has spoken candidly about Liverpool before the end of the season, saying that the stinging defeat had affected him.

Messi can put his Liverpool nightmares behind him -- when Mateo isn't reminding him of it -- as he prepares for the upcoming Copa América with Argentina.

The Argentine youngsters were simply starstruck when the 31-year-old Argentine forward was at his side's training camp at Buenos Aires, with him taking the time to pose for some photos with them.

Messi will be hoping that Argentina are able to capture some silverware after many disappointments in major competitions.

But hey, at least former United States President Barack Obama offered some advice to Messi last week.

"Even people that we consider geniuses work with other people in order to develop their style," he said at the EXMA Conference in Bogota.

"In Argentina, even though Messi is wonderful, they have problems winning the World Cup,

"My advice to young people is that we have to recognise very few people achieve great things on their own."

The Copa América is hosted in Brazil and will run from 14th June to 7th July.

Will Argentina win the Copa América?

Let us know in the comments.
