You would imagine being the mother of a Premier League star would make you get used to superstardom.
However it appears that even Romelu Lukaku’s mum can become a fan girl when confronted by Lionel Messi.
A video has emerged of Adolphine Lukaku barely able to contain her excitement at meeting the Barcelona forward at Old Trafford this week
Messi was part of the Barca side that earned a 1-0 away win over Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
Adolphine giggled like a little girl as she posed for a picture with the Argentine and then they shared a warm embrace.
She muttered ‘Messi, Messi, Messi’ while shaking her head in disbelief as they hugged it out. Apparently being the mother of a player in the opponents camp has nothing to do with, she just got to be herself!
The 31-year-old was below par and was left nursing a nose bleed and a bloody eye after taking an elbow in the face from Chris Smalling.
Despite not having a super night his presence alone was more than enough to give some die-hard fans enough excitement.
Some will say it cannot be called an off night after he placed the incredible pass that forced an own goal by Luke Shaw in the 12th minute.
The night at old Trafford revolved around Messi who was the subject of discuss before, during and after the match but who had to return home with a broken nose.
He will hope to be back to his best on Tuesday night when Barca hope to defend their lead at the Nou Camp. Wednesday night did not go without the usual comparison between Messi arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Juventus forward also grabbed attention when he returned from injury to score away against Ajax in a match that eventually ended 1-1 thus handing Juventus an opportunity to carry the day in the return leg just as Messi and his teammates will be looking forward to finish the project at the Nou camp in the return leg.
