Messi Has Been A Madrid Fan Since He Was Born – Isco

Spain international and Real Madrid midfielder, Isco is adamant that Messi has been a Real Madrid fan since he was born – although in this case Messi is his dog and not the Barcelona star!

He had previously revealed that he cannot go out for walks with Messi and has now come to the defence of man’s best friend

Isco, 24, joined Los Blancos in 2013 but by that time he had already named his Labrador after Argentine star Leo.

“I named my dog ‘Messi’ because Messi is the best in the world, and so is my dog,” he explained while he was a Malaga player.

Back in May, he revealed that he was unable to take his dog out for walks as he felt he was unable to call for ‘Messi’ in the streets.

And now the Spain international has reiterated that his pooch is a Madridista, despite his unusual name.

Asked in an interview with Cadena COPE whether his other dogs, Junior and Bubu, were Madrid fans, he replied: “Always. And Messi too, since he was born.”
