– The Argentine forward decided to dance after scoring
– It was later understood that the dance was a tribute aimed at Luis Suarez
Barcelona star man, Lionel Messi, caught the eyes of the Camp Nou fans when he opted to dance in celebration of his goal against Atletic Bilbao.
The Argentinean ace found the net with the second goal in the Catalans’ 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp , he produced a funny little dance to celebrate the feat.
Messi pointed up to the stands after his dance, leading many to wonder just why he did the dance.
The Argentine international’s celebration prompted several theories including that it was a tribute to his recently born son Ciro and that had been taught the dance by new Barca signing Yerry Mina, who also loves to shake it when it a goal is scored.
But the answer was far simpler, It was actually just a little tribute to his good friend Luis Suarez.
Catalan TV channel Esports RAC1 reported that Messi’s dance was a private joke between him, Suarez and the pair’s families, with the Uruguayan – who was missing the match through suspension – stationed up in the private box to where Messi pointed after the goal.
