Former Barcelona player Lionel Messi has sparked a lot of reactions from football fans after he “liked” Lautaro Martinez’s posts, following Barcelona’s disappointing draw against Inter Milan.
Naija News recalls that the Argentine captain moved from Camp Nou to Paris as a free agent after many years in Spain. On Wednesday night at Spotify Camp Nou, the Catalan powerhouses and the former Serie A champions drew 3-3. As a result, Xavi Hernandez’s team is on the verge of missing out on the round of 16 for the second consecutive season. Nerazzurri’s Martinez contributed one assist with a goal in the game, and posted on his Instagram account following the game to express his satisfaction with the outcome. “Heart , Personality , Humility”, he captioned it. His fellow countryman Messi noticed the post and was moved by his performance. Following this, the Argentine striker liked the post which sparked a lot of reactions from fans in the sports community. @Poojamedia imagined what the social media platforms will be like if that act was done by Manchester United’s forward, Cristano Ronaldo. “Just imagine Ronaldo liked the photos of Maccabi Haifa after they defeated Juventus, the TL will be on fire right now.” @Theorriginal questioned @poojamedia’s post with his response “Are you saying it’s a crime if Ronaldo likes Bruno’s post if he scores an important goal against Madrid. Or what’s more shameless than commenting “Factos” on a fan page because you weren’t good enough for an award.” @BashirAhmaad in his own opinion feels Messi could be passing a message to his former club “Messi is nicely telling Barcelona to just forget about him and move on with life after him.” @Sho_la_y also believe if the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner had done the same, he would be the talk of the town “Why are people in the comments saying it’s his teammate? If Ronaldo had done exactly the same. He would be trending by now” @Angryman0001 feels there is nothing wring with the captain of the Argentine team liking his teammate’s post “He’s the captain of this group and everyone liked Martinez post. What are you on kid ?” @Iteoluwakiisi10 also feels everyone has no reason to criticize the Argentine since he is his fellow countryman “Lautaro Martinez is his compatriot..what’s your point?” @Yemisikolaa feels Lionel Messi has done nothing wrong since he never liked Milan’s Posts “Unrelated analogy..Did Messi like the post of Intermilan? she said @UniversalGrand2 also feels Ronaldo would have been blasted if he had done that “Don’t mind them” He said “Everything Messi do is good but If it was Ronaldo they will say he’s selfish, arrogant, proud, self centered, not loyal, rebel, etc. But it’s Messi and it’s fine.”
