It’s one uploaded by Antonella Rocuzzo, Lionel Messi’s wife, which shows the Argentine star in a familiar situation - being chased down by a ferocious opponent. Only this adorable, fluffy guy doesn’t want to injure the FC Barcelona star. He just wants to take a big ol’ bite out of the ball. What a rascal.

In the background, we can hear two of Messi’s kids cheering on their dad. “Score a goal,” one urges, while the other, wise beyond his years, reflects that his dad is a bit good at football.

Messi’s vacation is about to be over, but at least we got to see this!
