LIONEL MESSI’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo is something of a super fan when it comes to Harry Potter.
The 33-year-old model celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of the first film by watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in FRENCH.
Messi’s other half has been taking French lessons since moving from Barcelona, but opted to watch one of her favourite films in her native Spanish.
Roccuzzo took to Instagram to show her army of followers, nearly 18million strong, she had the date marked in her diary.
And her love for Harry Potter runs deeper than just watching the films and reading the books.
Messi’s childhood sweetheart has a golden snitch – an item used in the fictional sport of Quidditch that features in the series – tattooed on the back of her left arm.
She had the ink done in hometown Rosario back in the summer, a month before Messi’s historic transfer to French giants PSG.
And she was there as a supporting partner at Messi’s emotional Barcelona farewell press conference, handing him a tissue to cry into as tears streamed down his face.
The pair have three children together – Thiago, 9, Mateo, 6, and Ciro, 3.
They married in 2017 after going public with their relationship in 2008, although they are thought to have been together for some time before that.
Messi himself is something of a magician with the ball at his feet, and to the delight of Roccuzzo has even been compared to Harry Potter in the past.
Ex-Juventus man Christian Vieri told AS last year: “Messi is a magician, he’s the Harry Potter of soccer and when he stops playing, I’m throwing my TVs away.
“I’m not going to work no more on TV, I’m going to watch Netflix, that’s it, because when he stops there’s nothing else to watch.”
