'Why's he checking his ass?' – Fans in stitches as Lionel Messi bizarrely peeps inside Marco Verratti's shorts | The Sun

FOOTBALL fans were left perplexed after Lionel Messi looked inside Marco Verratti's shorts ahead of PSG's win over Toulouse.

Ahead of kick-off the players lined up in the tunnel kitted out and ready to go.


But Verratti appeared to have a problem with his shorts and asked Messi to help him out.

So without hesitation the Argentine pulled his shorts and peered inside to identify the problem, which may have been cause by a label.

The incident caught the eye of several fans on social media who found Messi's behaviour amusing but peculiar.

One supporter wrote: "Why is Messi checking Verratti's ass? 😭"

Another added: "He’s clearly having the time of his life and I'm sure Verratti is even having a better time."

And a third said: "Bro cheating on Antonella."

The pair also showed chemistry on the pitch when they combined brilliantly for PSG's second goal.

Verratti picked out Messi with a superb long ball who then carried the ball forward and teed up Kylian Mbappe for a simple finish.
