The Barcelona legend was accompanied by his wife Antonela and sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro at the match.

With him the children wear the same clothes as their fathers, the whole family walked together on the red carpet and posed in front of the world’s media.

However, Messi was furious when his childhood sweetheart was asked to leave in a shocking manner and out of view of the cameras.

In footage posted online, a France Football executive asks Antonela to step aside.

The director seemed to want to just have Messi and his children in their matching outfits.

Antonela initially followed instructions and walked away before the angry man in front immediately told her to turn around next to him before taking more pictures.

Antonella did not seem too disheartened by the incident as she was later spotted after her husband’s trophy-holding event along with partners of PSG stars such as Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Sergio Rico and Leandro Paredes.

But it was Messi’s actions that got fans talking on Twitter, with many cheering him.

One wrote: “Never mess with the king’s wife.”

Another said: “She supports him when he has nothing and he makes sure she is there when he has everything. I can totally feel him.”

While one fan commented: “Messi really loves his wife. I respect that.”

Messi and Antonella were introduced by their cousin Lucas Scaglia – who also attended Newell’s Old Boys – when they were 9 years old.

She remained by his side when he moved from South America to Barcelona and has been with him in all of his Ballon d’Or.

And last summer, she and the boys moved with him from Catalonia to the French capital for his latest venture in Ligue 1.
