In a recent interview, the Argentine was asked about his family life and specifically his three sons, who all seem to have taken a keen interest in the sport their father has become one of the all-time greats in.

Speaking about his second youngest, Mateo, Messi said he tries to get under his older brother’s skin by cheering when Real score, while he sometimes even teases his own father.

"We played at home, and last time we kicked it about, he (Mateo) would tell me, 'I’m Liverpool, who beat you,'" he told TyCSports.

"'You are Barca, and I’m Liverpool.'

"He’s watching TV and he screams goal for Real Madrid.

"He does it to annoy his brother.

"Everyone watching Madrid, they score, Thiago gets angry, and Mateo goes 'goaaaal for Madrid!'"
