Having recently won his seventh Ballon d’Or, Lionel Messi decided to have a kickabout with his children in his living room. His wife, Antonela Roccuzzo posted an Instagram story of him playing with his sons; Thiago (9), Mateo (6) and Ciro (3). The video starts with the PSG attacker running rings around Ciro, who tries his best to wipe out his father. In the latter part of the video, Messi can be seen goalkeeping with his sons fighting for the ball. The video reached its climax when Mateo decided to completely wipe out Ciro with a brutal sliding tackle. After the tackle, Mateo didn’t show any sympathy with Ciro making his way to the sidelines. Here is the video:
