Barcelona Femeni of Spain attacker, Asisat Oshoala has dispelled talk that she virtually begged The Catalan club’s megastar, Lionel Messi for a photograph together, as she says it past of the club’s culture.
Footballlive.ng gathered that Oshoala was beaming with smiles as she posed side-by-side with Messi on Monday, but a section on social media scolded her for seeking publicity through the shot.
However, the former Liverpool and Arsenal of England star, who is on loan at Bartca from Dalian Quanjian of China, took to social media to give a concise explanation that it is in the culture of the Spanish club’s female players hobnobbing with their male counterparts.
Incidentally, Oshoala had also posted an earlier photograph with Barca’s French whiz kid, Osumane Dembele, in which she tagged him her ‘twin brother,” considering their close resemblances.
However, her latest photo shot on social media drew caustic reactions in some quarters, which appeared to have led the Super Falcons star, and three-time Africa Women Footballer of The Year, to a short explanation.
In addition to her catchy photo pose with Messi, Oshoala stated: “We had to do this for the culture.”
