David Beckham Hand-Picks Lionel Messi’s Bodyguard: An MMA Fighter and Former US Soldier

The identity of Lionel Messi’s bodyguard has been revealed after he gained widespread attention in a recent viral incident.

Messi led Inter Miami to a second cup final on Wednesday night, extending his astonishing, undefeated run.

The Herons tied 3-3 with FC Cincinnati in 120 minutes before winning 5-4 on penalties to advance to the US Open Cup final against Houston Dynamo.

Messi assisted Leonardo Campana with two brilliant crosses, one of which forced extra time in the 97th minute.

Fans noticed the bodyguard dashing down the touchline to be close to the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner as he rushed over to celebrate with his colleagues.

The guard was also seen with Messi on the field after the game, indicating that he will go to great measures to safeguard the Argentine superstar.

He waits for him to get off the team bus and follows him everywhere he goes – even during the game.

Fans were intrigued as to who the man was and how he came to be remembered as probably the best player in football history.

 

Yassine Chueko, the security guard, has been identified, according to Argentine news site La Nacion.

Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham is alleged to have personally picked Chueko, a former US soldier.

He is thought to be an ex-Navy Seal who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, but he also has substantial MMA experience.

In Thailand, he won his first professional bout in the opening round, finishing in 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Chueko is skilled in several martial arts and routinely shares footage of himself training on his Instagram account, which has 113,000 followers, including Messi and Sergio Ramos.

Rodrigo De Paul has long been described as Messi’s personal bodyguard, but Chueko has taken over as his primary protection, and you wouldn’t want to offend him.
