Lionel uploaded a photo on his account with 259 million followers where he is seen with his wife with the iconic Eiffel Tower in the background. The publication added almost twelve million "likes" and received a huge number of comments, including one from a teammate of his in the Argentine national team and at PSG.
The midfielder Leandro Paredes "reproached" him for the copyright of the image. "PH," replied the midfielder who will not be able to play against Venezuela this Thursday because he is suspended. "I don't know if it was you this one. I'm not sure," was the response of the Argentine captain, who has a great friendship with the midfielder, the two shared the Copa America and many joys at PSG.
