Kid Gave Lionel Messi Two Fingers Gesture When Full-Time Whistle Blew

Kid Gave Lionel Messi Two Fingers Gesture When Full-Time Whistle Blew

Lionel Messi is often met by a wall of adoring fans, chanting his name in their thousands when the final-whistle blows.

"Messi! Messi! Messi!" not only echoes around the Camp Nou on a weekly basis but opposition fans have been known to worship the hallowed turf he walks on. Remember this at Real Betis earlier this year?

Then again, it was a very different story for the little magician on Tuesday night.

Liverpool knocked four past the Spanish champions in one of the biggest shocks in the competitions history, as braces from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum sent them through, to the bewilderment of Messi and co.

Then, to rub salt into the wounds, their greatest ever player was handed 'the two fingers' by a kid shortly after the final-whistle.

Well, you don't see something like this everyday.

It doesn't appear to have affected Messi and co, however, as a spokesperson for the Hilton told the Liverpool Echo that there were no noise complaints filed.

But who knows.
