Barcelona put up yet another unforgiving display of footballing masterclass in front of their toothless opponents Celta Vigo as The Catalans pulled off a magnificent 5-0 win in the La Liga to go back to the top of the table with a 1 point league over 2nd place Real Madrid.
Lionel Messi was man of the match yet again with a phenomenal display providing two assists and scoring two goals, one of them being a trademark uncatchable solo effort from the Maestro.
However, a moment to look out for in the match was Lionel Messi’s celebration after his first goal which was something never seen before as he walked back to the centre circle while pointing to the stands and making a telephone signal with his right hand.
This sparked rumours related to Messi’s contract situation at the club and possible transfer gestures, which were all eventually downplayed and shut out by the player’s entourage as he revealed the reason behind it to the Spanish Media.
As mentioned in Metro, Messi pointed to his nephew in the stands in order to apologize to the lad after not being able to receive his calls the entire day.
It all made sense once the reason was out in the open and the fans of other mega clubs who possibly saw hints of a chance to see Messi up for grabs are now back in their seats and will be there for a while.
Barcelona’s next task is now a mammoth one as they look to overturn a 4-0 loss against PSG in the second leg at Camp Nou.
