Lisandro Martinez tags Wout Weghorst as ‘Bobo’ or ‘Stupid’ upon arrival at Man United, revisiting the World Cup meltdown with Lionel Messi

Lisandro Martinez

Once upon a time, in the midst of a World Cup quarter-final penalty victory, Lionel Messi, in his trademark fiery form, confronted Wout Weghorst, a man standing tall at 6 foot 6 inches. This encounter birthed the infamous phrase “Que miras, Bobo?” which quickly spread across the globe like wildfire.

But let’s not forget, Messi was lucky that Weghorst didn’t take a swing at him in that moment. The legendary Argentine has since admitted that it’s not one of his proudest moments and it’s a memory he’s constantly reminded of by his children, who love to bring it up every chance they get.

On the flip side, Weghorst won’t be forgetting that fateful day anytime soon either. According to reports, when the Dutch striker arrived at Manchester United, he was greeted by Messi’s Argentine teammate Lisandro Martinez who lovingly referred to him as Bobo. And the nickname stuck, much to Weghorst’s amusement.

Nowadays, the moniker has transformed into a term of endearment for the giant striker and it’s probably a good thing for Martinez too, considering he can barely reach Weghorst’s shoulders.

So there you have it folks, the story of how one post-match interview gave birth to a nickname that will live on forever in the annals of football history.
