Does Messi Drink Mate?
We know Lionel Messi's teammate and best friend Luis Suarez drinks a lot of mate, since he carries it everywhere he goes, but does Messi also drink herba mate from time to time? Based on this picture it' pretty clear he does.
I just wonder how often Messi drinks mate and if it was Suarez who got Messi to start drinking it or was it just something the Argentine had done his whole life. Messi has been on a goal soring tear of late for Barcelona, since Neymar left the club for PSG.
So I wonder if Messi started drinking more herba mate this La Liga season and that's partly why he's scoring so many goals. Sure, it could just be that Messi realizes he has to perform at a higher level since Neymar is gone, but maybe a bit more mate is part of it too.
