Lionel Messi's stay in Miami is very good since he managed to adapt in the best way to the city and the club. But, perhaps, those who enjoy this new adventure the most are his children. The man from Rosario, in the role of his father, is very involved in his activities. So much so that in the last few hours he sent a birthday greeting to a friend of Thiago and invented a curious nickname for him.

Both Thiago and Mateo began playing in the Inter Miami Academy and are very loved by their teammates. The oldest of the brothers established a very good relationship with another boy and Leo did not hesitate to greet him on his birthday.

“Hello Roger, happy birthday. I hope you have a great time, that you enjoy it a lot, that you enjoy your day. “I send you a big hug, I wish you the best and see you soon,” Messi said looking at the camera in the video that went viral. But what caught attention was the closing in a very joking tone and with a big smile: “A hug, Featherweight.”
The Roger that Lionel refers to is Roger Llaurado Jr, a small Inter Miami Academy player who is a sensation on social networks. The boy is very active on his Instagram account and has 167 thousand followers.

This curious nickname that Messi invented for him has to do with his haircut, which is very similar to that of the Mexican singer.
On his Instagram account, Roger shared this greeting and took very kindly to this funny nickname that 10 gave him. “Thank you Leo Messi for the birthday wishes!!! I was shocked when I saw the video, it was an unexpected surprise. You are a great role model and I hope to follow in your footsteps and make you proud. Thanks again Leo!!! See you soon…Featherweight,” he wrote alongside laughing emojis.
