Former La Liga player reveals he slept with dirty Lionel Messi shirt for months

Former Espanyol player Matias Vargas has revealed that he kept Lionel Messi’s unwashed shirt under his pillow for months.

The 26-year-old Matías Vargas played for Spanish side Espanyol from 2019 to 2022. The Argentina winger joined Chinese Super League side Shanghai Port.

Vargas swapped shirts with Argentina legend Lionel Messi after Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Espanyol in January 2020. Vargas now has revealed that he kept Messi’s unwashed shirt next to his pillow for months and did not let his mother wash the shirt.

Vargas told Fox Sports: “I slept with a Messi shirt next to my pillow for two or three months. Dirty, as it was. I played against him and we changed them. My mother told me ‘let me wash it’. I told her not to touch it.”

Vargas who played two times for Argentina won the Chinese Super League title with Shanghai Port last month.

Lionel Messi won the Leagues Cup with Inter Miami in his first season in MLS and is getting ready for the new season.
