Lionel Messi’s dog serenaded by cheery Argentinian fans after the Paris Saint-Germain star led the country to World Cup victory


The party in Argentina shows no signs of slowing down as even Lionel Messi’s dog has been serenaded by fans.

A clip has surfaced of a group of cheering fans wearing Argentinian shirts approaching the World Cup-winning dog, chanting: ‘Es el perro de Messi’ – translated as ‘it’s Messi’s dog’ .

Fans are then seen dancing before the dog, a large Dogue de Bordeaux named Hulk, comes towards them.

They then gather around the Hulk and give him a thump before continuing to sing and dance, toasting Argentina’s spectacular World Cup victory over France last Sunday.

Messi bought the Hulk in 2016 and instantly showed off the new family member by posting photos of the pair on Instagram.

The Paris Saint-Germain star returned to Argentina on Tuesday morning after his exploits in Qatar and was greeted by a sea of ​​adoring fans in the capital Buenos Aires.

It was Argentina’s first World Cup success since Diego Maradona lifted the famous trophy in 1986.

Sunday’s victory also reopened the debate on whether Messi’s exploits make him the greatest player of all time.

Messi revealed shortly after Sunday’s final that he would not be stepping down from international duties despite admitting the win against France would be his last at the World Cup.

The 35-year-old is not expected to feature for PSG until mid-January as he prepares for another Champions League chance.

Messi has won the competition four times and has one win behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s five medals.

It is also within easy reach of the Portuguese star’s goalscoring record in the competition.

Mesis is currently on Champions League goals, 11 behind Ronaldo who looks set to say goodbye to the Champions League with a move to Saudi Arabia approaching.

With a new contract at PSG in the works, Messi has unfinished business before finally leaving at sunset.
