Lionel Messi, the soccer star who changed the game for Inter Miami, was recently made fun of for buying the “worst pizza ever seen” after a season of great but tiring games.
After scoring five goals and getting 11 assists in just 11 games, the football star chose to treat himself to a dinner that reminded him of his youth.
But as soon as he told friends about his emotional lunch, it became a target of trolling on the internet.
Lionel Messi went to the Argentine pizzeria Banchero Miami for something that didn’t look like pizza but might have been a nice pie. He shared a photo of the “classic pizza,” and fans seemed scared by the sight of the dish.
It didn’t look like a fried dough wheel dripping with cheese and pork. Instead, it looked like something made in a class on how to eat healthy.
The Sun said that the small base was made of nothing but tomato pieces, olives, and onions.
Messi’s fans were quick to call it the “worst pizza ever seen.”
One person said, “It’s not a pizza… This is wrong with food.”
Someone else said, “Who eats that, bro?”
One person said, “Alien food.”
“Is this even pizza?” asked someone else.
Messi was not able to play in Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Bolivia, so he got a strange prize.
He scored the only goal in the 1-0 victory over Ecuador before. But because he didn’t go with the team, fans won’t be able to see him at tonight’s MLS game against Atlanta.
