Lionel Messi Shows Out in Front of Selena Gomez and the Stars

The Cooligans react to Messi’s performance against LAFC.

Lionel Messi’s presence in the United States only continues to expand.

The Cooligans kick off their reaction to Messi’s recent performance against LAFC by acknowledging how the star has completely taken over Apple TV since his move to Inter Miami.

After a quick detour into the Rauw Alejandro-Rosalía drama, Christian and Alexis get back on track by discussing the difference between celebrities who show up for Messi’s matches in Miami compared to those who appear in L.A.

“The ones who go to Miami are usually the ones that are like ‘bucket list, I gotta make sure I am in DRV PNK Stadium to see Lionel Messi’... the people out in L.A., it’s just another thing to do,” Christian says.

The superstars were certainly out in droves to watch Messi play, as Selena Gomez, Leonardo DiCaprio and others were in attendance.

Many were expecting the game to be a blowout, but it actually ended up being a relatively close contest with Miami winning 3-1. As the Cooligans point out, it could have been even closer if Denis Bouanga didn’t play one of the worst games of his career.

“It was a little bit like... ‘bro, I’m gonna be a star today,’” Christian says.

“Oh, y’all talking about Messi? Messi gonna be talking about me,” Alexis jokes.
