WATCH: Lionel Messi gets embarrassed reading out nice tweets about himself

Lionel Messi doesn’t really need to be told that he’s the best player in the world.

But it must always be nice to receive praise from fans, no matter who you are.

However for Messi, it seems he can’t handle the constant stream of compliments he receives, if this video is anything to go by.

Barcelona gave some of their best players some nice tweets to read out about themselves, but Messi seemed a touch embarrassed to have to read out his own plaudits.

Watch the video below.

Arda Turan loves it, quite clearly, while Ivan Rakitic just wants to be known as being #fromseville, that’s all.



There really are, Leo.
