Watch: Lionel Messi’s son Thiago recreates classic handshake with Luis Suarez after 7 years

In 2022, Lionel Messi fulfilled his quest for the World Cup title by lifting the most coveted accolade of his career. Following an illustrious club career in Europe with FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, where he won numerous accolades, Messi and his family moved to the MLS last summer.

Recently, the former Barcelona prolific striker Luis Suarez reunited with his dear friends Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets at Inter Miami by signing a new contract with the American club co-owned by David Beckham. He recreated the iconic handshake with Thiago Messi, further cementing this memorable gathering.

The Lionel Messi-led Inter Miami has kicked off their new MLS campaign with a stellar run, winning two of their first three games. The attacking duo of Suárez and Messi, spearheading the team’s offensive line, have been involved in 9 goal contributions altogether in the three games played so far this season.

In their recent home 5-0 triumph over Orlando City on Saturday, Lionel Messi’s eldest son, Thiago Messi, and Luis Suarez recreated a cheerful handshake, seven years after the original. The clip captured the adorable interaction, with Thiago’s brother, Mateo Messi, also taking part in it.

In 2017, during the Golden Shoe Gala, Suarez and Thiago shared a handshake and an amusing exchange, staring at each other and laughing while sitting together. That evening in Barcelona, Lionel Messi won his sixth accolade, with both Messi and Suarez being Barcelona players at the time.

Where is Thiago Messi playing right now?

Following in the footsteps of Lionel Messi, who moved to Inter Miami in June 2023, his son Thiago Messi also joined Inter Miami’s under-12 youth, being admitted to the club’s academy. Before this, the 11-year-old had never been associated with any academy during their stay in Europe.
