Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has made a bold claim about his son Mateo being a Real Madrid fan.

Mateo does celebrate Real Madrid’s victories and goals as he found a way to irk his father and his brother, Thiago and he teases Messi when Barcelona suffer defeat.

"Mateo likes all the shirt of every team and he wears them," Messi told TyC Sports.

"But the last time we were playing Play Station, he told me: 'I'll choose Liverpool, the ones that defeated you.'

"He understands a little, but he doesn't realise it yet.

"Just like when we lost against Valencia [and he said]: 'Valencia defeated you, eehh.'

"Or he watches television and celebrates Real Madrid's goals to irritate Thiago.”
