Lionel Messi Spotted In Disneyland

Barcelona star Lionel Messi failed in his bid to make an undercover visit to Disneyland Paris.

 

The French theme park is one of the favourite destinations for the midfield maestro.

 

Messi took advantage of a brief break following Barca's Champions League sensational win over Paris Saint-Germain to make the short journey across the border to France with girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo and their children Thiago and Mateo.

 

And despite his efforts to go unnoticed by sporting a hoodie, cap and a full beard, the Argentina footballer was soon spotted by fellow tourists.

 

Some took pictures with him and later posted them online. The photos show Messi in his poor disguise, holding one of his children.

 

It is not the first time Antonella and Messi have visited the Disneyland resort as they were pictured there before having children and again only last year.

 

The world famous No 10 lives in Barcelona, in the eastern Spanish region of Catalonia, and decided to make the  special Disney trip with his family after being given two days off by club coach Luis Enrique.

 

Now it is back to full training as Messi tries to help Barcelona's season end in European glory along with winning the La Liga title and a Spanish Cup.
