Lionel Messi makes his first Twitch appearance

PSG announced the signing of Lionel Messi yesterday for the first time after his time at Barcelona ended. Following his exit from the club, a lot of rumors surrounded the footballing genius’s next move. Many considered it to be the French club as he would then reunite with his former teammate in Neymar. He last faced him during the finals of the recently held, Copa America, where Messi was victorious over the Brazilian. This allowed him to gain his first major international trophy.

Along with that, Messi also invited Spanish Twitch star Ibai who livestreamed his reveal event. During the stream, the Argentine even signed his new PSG shirt for Ibai, which officially became his first live appearance on the streaming platform. He stated that he was feeling hot and tired because of the weather, and he later gave his greetings to the people on Twitch. He also mentioned that he kept an eye on the platform even though he doesn’t have a massive idea about it.

“Sure, hey this is my first appearance in Twitch. I honestly don’t know much about it. But, hi to all the people watching this. I usually don’t participate but I follow it.”

It’s very unlikely that Messi will ever join Twitch to stream like his other friends from the sport. However, fans of the little genius would love to see him showcase his footballing skills, or even his chops at Warzone. But more importantly, they want to see him play, and they will now see him tear the French league with a superteam in PSG.
