Lionel Messi was besieged by fans in Miami. On vacation, the Argentine player was approached at a Florida restaurant. What happened next?
He cannot come out quiet. And that will always happen to him because he is known throughout the world. Lionel Messi is the captain of the Argentine national team and the most prominent footballer of recent years, reason enough for fans to go out of their way to have an autograph or photo with him.
In Miami, already on vacation after winning the Copa América, Messi chose to visit Café Ragazzi, an exclusive Italian restaurant owned by singer Ricardo Montaner. There, in Florida, people watched him and blocked his exit.
“Come on, champion,” they turned to him, while several cell phones filmed him trying to leave the restaurant. Escorted through the security of the venue, fans who tried to hug or touch him were unable to reach him.
Messi managed to reach his vehicle, but the reality is that it was very difficult for him to reach it since the fans noticed his presence. He is the Argentine star, he is not any other. And the price, unfortunately for him, is this. Will he ever have time to enjoy an outing without frights or the fury of the people?
