Fermin Lopez Reveals He Celebrated Like Jude Bellingham Because Lionel Messi Was The First to Do So


Barcelona midfielder Fermin Lopez revealed he did a similar celebration to Jude Bellingham’s celebration because Lionel Messi was the first player to do so.

The Spanish midfielder has rubbished the insinuation that he copied Jude Bellingham’s famous celebration.

The player came on in the second half when Real Madrid and Barcelona were playing a 1-1 draw. He proceeded to put Barcelona in front in the 69th minute of the game.

After scoring the excellent goal, he climbed onto the advertisement board and stretched out his arms the same way Jude Bellingham did later in the game.

In his latest interview with Sport, he said, “I celebrated it that way because that’s how Messi celebrated it. Not because of Bellingham.”

The midfielder was one of the most captivating players in the Barcelona squad in the just-concluded 2023–24 season. His performances earned him a spot in the Spain national team for the Euro 2024.

He was formerly an unknown player who was expected to leave the Barcelona squad before the commencement of the 2023–24 season.

Former Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez fell in love with his creative style during the preseason and decided to allow him to continue with the Barcelona squad.

Lopez has been a reliable performer in the Barcelona midfield. He has scored several important goals for Barca. The Spanish star scored an excellent goal in El Clasico on April 21, 2024.

The player has been named as part of the Spain squad for the 2024 Olympics game. Lopez is looking forward to helping the Spain squad secure the gold medal at the end of the tournament.

He failed to win a single trophy at Barcelona in the 2023–24 season. Winning the gold medal at the 2024 Olympics may be the beginning of his expected success in his football career.
