It looks like the addition of Luis Suárez to the Barcelona squad has been very helpful – even when it has nothing to do with football.
A very cool story was published by Diario Sport this week in which it describes the struggles that Lionel Messi has with picking up his son Thiago from school. According to the article, which cites an Argentine journalist who has been following Lionel lately, Thiago loves his school and friends so much that he starts to cry and complain as soon as Daddy Leo comes to bring him home at 1PM. It looks like Leo has had trouble with that for a while, but then he found a solution – bring his striking partner together.
The story has some nice pictures that show Leo and Luisito together at the school, and this photo shows what appears to be a very happy little Thiago on his dad’s arms – not because of the dad, but because of the dad’s friend, who also happens to have his kids studying at the same school and comes at the same time to pick up his own children.
"And it looks as if the results are paying off, because those who witnessed the scene inform us that Thiago was very happy and pleased when his father came to pick him up along with his strike partner," the article continues.
There’s a lot of cool things to see here. First of all, Suárez and Messi have become good friends off the pitch, which invariably and undoubtedly has a good impact on the pitch. Second, Thiago Messi is just the cutest little thing ever. Good genes, obviously.
Third, even the great Lionel Messi is a Daddy Dork.
