Lionel Messi continues new celebration theme after netting brace vs Orlando City

The wife of Inter Miami star Lionel Messi has, on Thursday, provided an insight into the meaning behind her husband’s latest eye-catching celebration.

The name of seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has of course taken its place centre stage in the football headlines once more over the course of the last 24 hours.

This comes with the veteran attacker fresh off another dazzling stateside display.

After kicking life in Major League Soccer into gear in predictably brilliant fashion courtesy of three goals and an assist across his first two appearances, Messi, late on Wednesday night, guided his side into a Leagues Cup meeting with Orlando City.
