Barcelona star Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players to have ever stepped on the field. His heroics for the club are no surprise to the footballing world and still continues to be on the highest level alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
An idol to many, the Argentine, at times, has also contributed to the fashion world in different aspects. Be it his blonde hairstyle or the ginger beard he sports, his fans would surely want to emulate him.
Anything Messi does is news and that is why he can do whatever he likes within the framework of legality.
Prior to the game against Ibiza FC in the third round of the Copa del Rey, Messi had time to photograph himself with the fans who were waiting for him at the training ground. Most of them were Arturo Vidal’s friends.
The interesting part was the outfit he sported. The 32-year-old showed up with a Mexican jacket in the purest Aztec style, similar to the ones legendary goalkeeper Jorge Campos wore in most of his games, back in the days.
The former shot-stopper wore the highly Mexicanized Aztec style jersey whenever he represented the national team. It stood out to be unique from other teams and their jerseys. Thus, Campos got into the limelight for sporting a peculiar tradition.
And, the Ballon d’Or winner was captured emulating the legendary Mexican goalkeeper with his outfit while appearing for training.
Messi and his teammates travel to the paradise island as they face Ibiza FC in midweek and further, a stern test awaits them at the Mestalla Stadium on Saturday in La Liga. They would be hoping to take three points against Albert Celades’ Valencia side.
