LIONEL MESSI’S sweat smells like cologne, according to the Wag of MLS star Dax McCarty.
The Nashville midfielder was lucky enough to get his hands on Messi’s jersey following the Leagues Cup final.

Messi scored in the 1-1 draw with Inter Miami winning 10-9 on penalties to hand the superstar the 44th trophy of his career.
But McCarty was not too downbeat after the match as he took Messi’s shirt home and promised his wife he would frame a photo of him holding the top.
He shared the photo on Instagram, writing: “Love my guys, proud of this group.
“Jen McCarty, sorry but last slide is going in a frame above the bed.”
Jen replied in the comments saying: “No chance that’s happening.”
She posted the same photo on Twitter alongside the caption: “We smelled it. It smells like he sweats straight cologne!”
The Argentine also converted the opening spot kick for his side in the shoot-out as they went on to claim their first trophy since their foundation in 2020.
And Messi followed up his star turn in the game with a classy gesture before the team’s trophy lift.
The new Inter Miami captain placed his armband on his predecessor DeAndre Yedlin’s arm and insisted on doing a joint lift of the Leagues Cup with the American.
