The young fan jumped over into the field while Messi was walking to the tunnel after PSG’s 4-0 win over Nantes in Tel-Aviv, Israel on July 31, 2022. The fan had been looking for the opportunity to meet his idol and was left in tears by Messi’s tight security.
The child will never forget the moment in his life when he snapped with the greatest player of all time. The occasion has gone viral on the internet.
This is not the first time something like that has happened to Messi. While he was at Barcelona, a fan did the same thing, but Messi didn’t give him any chance to take pictures with him.
Pride and arrogance were never a wall in front of his glory. This calm nature of Messi is one of the likable features of the football icon. He gives equal importance to every fan, eight to eighty, on or off the field.
The ability to recognize fans and spring into action should be one of the things that footballers should always consider in their careers going forward.
Lionel Messi was once pictured giving a high five to a fan. A lot of people believe that it is very risky for the Argentine striker, who never stops, to be issuing friendly gestures to fans.

Just because of Messi’s approachable nature, a lot of people have criticized his career rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, who broke a fan’s phone after Manchester United lost to Everton.
