Messi and Suarez pose with their wives and the La Liga trophy
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez continued their La Liga triumph celebrations on Saturday night with their wives.
Messi posed with Antonella Roccuzzo and Suarez with Sofia Balbi next to the trophy on a night out before partying with the rest of their team-mates.
Luis Suarez’s wife posted the snap to her Instagram, and also posted a number of other pictures and videos to her Instagram story throughout the night.
Luis Suarez’s wife Sofia Balbi had already posed with the La Liga trophy earlier in the day. She managed to get onto the Nou Camp pitch alongside their children for a quick picture after the match.
Balbi and Roccuzzo are actually business partners, having opened a boutique footwear store in Barcelona together in 2017.
Their husbands have a more famous partnership though, as they helped Barcelona lift the trophy for the second year in a row.
In a video posted by Barcelona’s Twitter account, Mateo, who is three, can be seen running up to his football icon father before jumping into his hands.
The pair embrace for a while before Messi gives him a kiss on the cheek. A moment later, oldest son Thiago who is six, also sprints up to his father before joining in with the hug.
The 31-year-old came off the bench to wrap up the league title with three matches remaining ahead of Barcelona’s crunch Champions League semi-final first-leg with Liverpool.
‘Messi always takes us out of many problems, it’s clear,’ Valverde said in a press conference.
‘We’re not going to apologise for having Messi, it’s a good thing he’s with us.
‘He was clear that he had to play. We have a game on Wednesday and we have to be active.
‘I knew he was going to play at least from half-time; he made the goal in the end – he always makes goals everywhere.’
Another hilarious moment was captured as Suarez’s six-month old son appeared to reenact his father’s infamous biting incident as he celebrated.
