Lionel Messi reveals secret behind his superhero goal celebrations at Inter Miami and why he only does it for home games | The Sun

LIONEL MESSI revealed his superhero celebrations are dedicated to his three children.

Messi joined Inter Miami as a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain last month andsigned a two-and-a-half-year deal worth in the region of £35-£47million per season with David Beckham's team.

And the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner is earning every single penny as she has already amassed a staggering nine goals and one assist in only six matches with the MLS outfit.

The star forward has also adopted a new celebration that sees him strike poses similar to Marvel heroes Thor, Black Panther and Spiderman.

"They came up with the idea and told me that whenever I have a game and score a goal, I do a superhero celebration.

"But I only do them for home games, when the kids are here, near me, so we can share those moments."
