New Delhi: Inter Miami forward Lionel Messi is again in the headline in USA, not just for his goals but for his Marvel superhero ‘Thor’ celebration. The Argentine superstar scored five goals in just three games to help a struggling side Inter Miami win their third straight League Cup match.

Messi boosts Inter Miami

Now, with the arrival Leonel Messi and new manager Tata Martino, Inter Miami are suddenly on fire at full force. Messi’s goal is making headlines around the world, but so is his bizarre celebration.

Messi’s wife confirm celebration

Messi has celebrated with Marvel cues, and as his wife Antonella Locuzzo admitted, his latest was a tribute to Marvel’s superhero Thor. The Barcelona legend may just be a Marvel fan, but conspiracy theories are now surfacing on the internet about the motives behind the celebration.

Monetary Theory

Fans who watched the Wakanda Forever celebration featuring Thor’s version sparked speculation on social media and seemed to find a motive in some. A fan posted a special edition Thor-themed Adidas Marvel ball that sells for up to $170 in the US. It has been claimed that Messi’s celebration could be part of an advertising campaign by superstar sponsor Adidas.

Adidas marketing strategy

Adidas also has a Captain America version of the Marvel Ball, but it’s not yet clear if more versions will be released. However, the Captain America version is available in many stores for a lot less than the $170 price tag for the Thor edition in adidas stores.

Inter Miami next fixture

Messi will return to the action this Sunday for Inter Miami to face FC Dallas in the League Cup, and when he scored his sixth goal for the new South Florida club, he wondered which superhero would receive the tribute next. The celebration will be the center of attention.
