Both Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos have been at each others’ throats for as long as we could remember.
But the years of rivalry between the Barcelona and Real Madrid legends is now a thing of the past as they both find themselves in the new-look PSG team under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Parisian club’s official social media accounts released footage of Messi and Ramos meeting for the first time and it’s safe to say that football fans were highly weirded out with all the palliness on display.
It might be the ‘new normal’ and of course, this is exactly how you would expect them to behave now that they are teammates, but it still doesn’t sit quite right.
Here’s the reaction to one of the most surreal sights ever seen in football –
