Lionel Messi shuns awards night with PSG to attend music concert in Barcelona (Video)

Lionel Messi was spotted visiting a Coldplay performance in Barcelona just one day after winning his second Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain.

The 35-year-old returned to Spain for one of the year’s biggest music festivals.

Meanwhile, his PSG teammates attended the UNFP awards in Paris at the same time.

The World Cup winner quickly discovered that was impossible when the assembled Barcelona supporters recognised him sitting in the lower stands and started singing his name in unison.

Messi reportedly skipped the annual UNFP ceremony, which recognizes the top players in Ligue 1, Ligue 2, and the D1 Arkema (Women’s first division), in favour of attending the concert, according to RMC Sport.

The Argentine talent was named to the Ligue 1 team of the year alongside Kylian Mbappe, Achraf Hakimi, and Nuno Mendes.

In a video shared on Twitter, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner was seen in the audience at the concert at Montjuic Stadium and seemed to be trying to maintain a low profile.

Messi drops condition for Barcelona return

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has requested Barcelona sign his fellow Argentina teammates Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes ahead of his potential return, Sportskeeda reports.

Di Maria and Parades both played alongside Messi at Paris Saint-Germain last season before joining Juventus this season from the Ligue 1 giants at the start of the 2022/23 campaign.

With Juventus more likely to miss UEFA Champions League qualification next season, Messi now wants Barcelona to sign both Argentina stars as one of the conditions before re-signing for the Catalan giants.
