David Beckham Accused of Ignoring Lionel Messi During Meeting, Fans React with Awkwardness

After the two pairs of footballing superstars met at Paris Saint-Germain's training ground, there are fans who believe that Lionel Messi was disregarded by David Beckham.

Beckham, the former captain of the English football team, visited the French capital this week and made a return to his former team where he played 14 matches at the end of his successful career.

During his visit, Beckham met with the star-studded squad of Christophe Galtier and took pictures with notable players such as Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Sergio Ramos, and Marco Verratti. 

Notably, Verratti is the only surviving player from when Beckham played for the team at the Parc des Princes.

At the Camp des Loges facility, Beckham had conversations with staff members and took a group picture with the entire PSG squad in preparation for their upcoming match against Lorient on Sunday.

The Manchester United legend was also presented with a shirt containing his name and the No.32 - the exact number he sported at the club.

But while Beckham was all smiles next to Messi, who has been linked with a move to his MLS franchise Inter Miami, some fans have spotted what they believe to be an awkward moment.

Just before Beckham was snapped with Messi and Verratti, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner had his hand out and one claimed he was going for a handshake that did not arrive.

"I love how Beckham ignored Messi’s handshake," he wrote.

But another fired back, writing: "You have to be blind to see that it’s not a hand shake. He’s pointing towards the camera for the picture."

However, it should be noted that a second video shows Beckham telling Messi "Congratulations" and the pair sharing a warm embrace.

 The 47-year-old has regularly waxed lyrical about the Argentine ace and once said, "I probably decided to retire when Messi was running past me".

Beckham only had a short-term deal with PSG and donated his entire wages to a local children's charity. His final game was on May 18th and he received an emotional send-off when subbed off in the 81st minute of his last ever game.
