Eiffel tower

Antonela Roccuzzo shares a celebratory image alongside Lionel Messi with the Eiffel Tower in the background

Lionel Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, posted an incredible photo on Instagram, showing the couple having fun with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

Messi ended his 21-year association with boyhood club Barcelona last summer. He then joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on a free transfer, signing a two-year deal with the Ligue 1 giants.

However, the Argentine icon struggled to get started in France, with injuries preventing him from progressing. He ended the 2021-22 campaign with 11 goals and 15 assists in 34 appearances in all competitions for the Parisians.

Messi helped PSG reclaim the Ligue 1 title lost to Lille the previous season. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, however, couldn’t stop them from withdrawing from the UEFA Champions League and Coupe de France.

After a disappointing first campaign at PSG, the 35-year-old will be keen to bounce back this season. He returned to the club for pre-season last week after using the off-season to recharge his batteries.

Messi’s wife Roccuzzo gave us a glimpse of the PSG superstar’s vacation on social media last month. She previously posted images of the couple having fun with the families of Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas.

Roccuzzo recently shared a photo of the couple enjoying a night out in Paris on Instagram. Messi and his wife can be seen smiling with the Eiffel Tower and amazing fireworks in the background.

Messi hopes the 2022-23 campaign will be as celebratory as the image his wife shared on social media.

Lionel Messi returned to action with PSG on Friday

PSG played their first pre-season match against Ligue 2 club US Quevilly-Rouen Métropole on Friday. It was also Christophe Galtier’s first match at the head of the French champions.

Galtier has named Lionel Messi in his starting XI to face Quevilly-Rouen, leaving fans excited. The Argentine helped PSG to a 2-0 win in the game, while getting a precious 45 minutes under his belt.
