On the field, everywhere – the bodyguard who follows Messi step by step becomes viral


Lionel Messi has a personal bodyguard at Inter Miami and he goes absolutely everywhere with the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Last month, it was confirmed that Messi will leave European football by leaving Paris Saint Germain for MLS side Inter Miami.

Since Messi’s arrival, Inter Miami have been unbeaten and recently won their first trophy by winning the League Cup by defeating the Nashville outfit.

The Argentine also took his side to another major US Open Cup final, bringing his side back from 2-0 down to a dramatic 2-2 draw thanks to two superb assists and later a penalty goal.

T he 36-year-old has scored ten goals and three assists in his first eight games and ‘Messi-Mania’ is already evident, with everyone eager to talk or take pictures with him.


Inter Miami has had to increase security measures since Messi arrived and what stands out is the behavior of a bodyguard who really follows Messi wherever he goes.

As videos on social media show, a large and scary-looking gentleman follows the Argentine star everywhere. As soon as Messi gets off the team bus, he is there waiting to accompany him to the stadium or even during matches inside the field.

Even fans taking pictures and asking for autographs, the guard, wearing an Inter Miami jersey, makes sure they don’t get too close.

In fact, he was even seen stopping fans from touching the Barcelona legend and politely removed his hands from Messi’s shoulder.

When Messi comes out to warm up, he is always at work watching the situation. And then even with the games going on, the bodyguard is never too far away as he follows him down the touchline as if he were a side judge.

The videos of Messi’s bodyguard have already gone viral, conquering social networks.
