Football icon Lionel Messi asks for the “Second Shirt Swap” of his career. Keep watching to know who was the lucky player!

Messi’s strict shirt swapping rules went for a toss in the PSG vs St. Etienne’s Ligue 1 face off on Saturday Night where the former registered a win. Messi contributed with two assists in the thrilling match.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or champion asked St. Etienne’s defender Falaye Sacko for his T-shirt. The PSG forward, usually known for swapping t-shirts with Zinedine Zidane, broke this rule during Saturday’s Ligue 1 game at Parc Des Princes.

Thick Brush Stroke

Messi had precisely mentioned that he swaps t-shirts only if there is an Argentine but unless someone asks him, he does not ask anyone. However, in one instance in 2005 Messi asked for swapping t-shirt with Real Madrid’s attacking midfielder, Zinedine Zidane who most recently coached the club as well.
