Messi Mistakes Russian Forward For Fan And Posed For A Photo With Him

Zenit St Petersburg forward Sebastian Driussi, 21, spotted Lionel Messi in a hotel in Russia, where he is on international duty with Argentina, and requested a photograph with the  Barcelona star.
Messi accepted and took the photo with Driussi as he thought the Russian player was a football fan.

He later apologised to Driussi for not recognising him.

When Driussi uploaded his photograph to Instagram, Messi realised his mistake and, according to Marca, sent a message to the player to apologise.

"I feel bad about it because I did not recognise him, even though I know him," Messi said.

"When he asked for a photo I thought it was one of the guys who are always waiting for a photo and I apologised after.

 "When I saw him in the lobby of the hotel I was thinking of something else and I did not realise."
