On his return to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Lionel Messi was given a guard of honor, and we noticed several intriguing aspects throughout, including Ethan Mbappe’s reaction.
Following his pivotal role in helping Argentina win the World Cup last month, Messi had a well-earned 10-day sabbatical from the Ligue 1 champions.
The seven-time winner of the Ballon d’Or celebrated with his La Albiceleste teammates throughout that time in an open-top bus procession before being surrounded by hordes of fans in his hometown of Rosario.
In preparation for Les Parisiens’ Cup of France match against Chateauroux on Friday, the former Barcelona forward has finally returned to the team’s training facility.
The reaction of Ethan Mbappe to Lionel Messi’s guard of honor
Fans were quick to draw attention to the reaction of Kylian Mbappe‘s brother, Ethan, who joined the French club in the same summer as his older sibling, Kylian, as you can see in the video above. Nevertheless, as you can see in the video above, a group of PSG players and staff welcomed Messi back with a warm round of applause.
A viewer’s remark on the video was as follows: “Face of Ethan Mbappe speaks volumes. No smiles, and Ethan Mbappe appeared exhausted upon seeing Messi, according to another.”
Another added: “The way Ethan Mbappe responded was amusing. He isn’t there to shake Messi’s hand.”
After receiving a guard of honor, Lionel Messi was presented with an award
Messi received a gold-plated medal from a representative of Paris Saint-Germain to mark the World Cup victory last month after being praised for his efforts.
The Argentine then posed for photos holding the trophy.
Leo Messi is already earning trophies in 2023 without even playing on the field, a fan replied, while another said: “GOAT stuff.”
