A photo of an Iranian cleric who seems to be another double of famous footballer Lionel Messi has gone viral in Iran.
The cleric seems to be the second lookalike of the Argentinian genius footballer.
Reza Parastesh, Lionel Messi’s first Iranian ‘double’, travelled to Barcelona earlier this week with the objective of meeting his idol. Parastesh, 25 years old, was at Camp Nou on Saturday for Barça’s La Liga game against Malaga.
The fan of the Barcelona star had a huge banner on him with the following message: “Today there are two Messis in the stadium. Will we see each other?#makemydreamareality.”
Parastesh had been out and about in the Catalan city, drawing lots of attention.
It was the same story at Camp Nou, with many supporters wanting their photograph taken with Messi’s Iranian double.
Many people had even thought he was actually Messi.
Now the question is that whether this cleric would also go to Camp Nou to meet with the legendary Messi. Maybe, we must wait until the World Cup 2018 in Russia to see this happen!
