Chef Lionel Messi Stuns MLS Fans with Signature Style “Milanese” Chicken Burger at Hard Rock Cafe

Despite being an introvert, Lionel Messi remains one of football’s most marketable players. With millions of followers on Instagram, the former Barcelona star gets millions of dollars to make sponsored posts on the platform.

Fresh from winning the World Cup with Argentina last December, The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s endorsement deals have gone through the roof, with several brands taking advantage of the star’s total football dominance. Messi’s list of sponsorship deals includes Adidas, Pepsi, Lay’s, and Budweiser, and now, Hard Rock Cafe has joined that long list of endorsement deals.

Messi is in line to make his MLS debut soon after snubbing Barcelona and a move to Saudi Arabia to play with Inter Miami for the upcoming MLS season. The 36-year-old has already arrived in Miami ahead of his unveiling on Sunday. The timing of Hard Rock Cafe’s Messi advert couldn’t have come at a better time.

The famous Rock n Roll-themed restaurant chain Hard Rock Cafe posted a video of a new advert featuring Lionel Messi yesterday. This new video has been making rounds on social media following reports that the Argentine had landed in Fort Lauderdale in the early hours of Tuesday. In this video, Messi enters a restaurant’s dressing room to change from his black leather jacket into a white chef’s outfit.

He heads into the restaurant’s kitchen to instruct his team of chefs on how to make his signature chicken burger, inspired by his favorite Milanese food. The new Milanese-style chicken burger combines provolone cheese, a Milanese-style chicken breast, tomatoes, rocket salad, and herb aioli, all wrapped in a pair of toasted artisan bread.
