This will be one of the images from Messi’s premiere. While the match had just ended in Auguste-Delaune with a victory for PSG over Reims (2-0) and Messi had just stepped on a Ligue 1 lawn for the first time, Reims goalkeeper Pedrag Rajkovic had a rather special request to the Argentinian star.
His jersey? No. A selfie? Not exactly … The Serbian goalkeeper put his young son in Messi’s arms, asking him to pose for a souvenir photo.
A scene captured by television cameras which inevitably quickly made the rounds of social networks, causing a lot of tenderness in some, but also a little anger among some supporters of Reims for really fan of the adoration dedicated by Rajkovic to Messi.
Just minutes later, the photo taken by Rajkovic found its way online, on his wife’s Instagram, Ana. She warmly thanks Leo Messi for this photo that her son will remember for a long time.
