Despite the fact that Lionel Messi is no longer a Barcelona player, he is still keeping an eye on the latest Spanish action.
After 21 years with Barcelona, Messi signed a free transfer to PSG in the summer.
But, as his wife Antonela Roccuzzo revealed on Instagram, he hasn’t completely forgotten about his previous life in Spain.
Roccuzzo shared a photo of herself reading her first book of 2022 on Instagram, but a portion of the Messi household’s television screen could be seen in the background.
The Spanish Super Cup semi-final between Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao was broadcast live.
So it was most likely Messi’s wife watching his former adversaries in action.
Bilbao defeated Real Madrid 2-1 to advance to the Super Cup final.
Messi’s former Barcelona teammates could have made it, but they were eliminated in the other semi-final on Wednesday by Real Madrid in a dramatic 3-2 loss.
