WOUT WEGHORST’S new nickname given to him by Lisandro Martinez has been revealed.

And it was remarkably inspired by the great Lionel Messi.

The PSG star slammed Weghorst following Argentina’s victory over Holland at the World Cup.

Despite Messi‘s team progressing to the semi-finals, tempers flared at the end of the contest and the legend was left far from happy.

And in his post-match interview, with Weghorst walking close to the camera, Messi furiously told him to clear off.

He said: “Who are you looking at, stupid? Go ahead, you stupid.”

And Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez, who’s a team-mate of both, has made a little fun out of the situation.

According to SPORT, he now calls Weghorst “Bobo” which means fool or idiot in Spanish.

But things aren’t exactly going great for the Dutchman on the pitch.

He recently scored his first Manchester United goal in the Carabao Cup tie with Nottingham Forest.


But that remains his only goal in his seven Red Devils appearances.

He’s averaging fewer shots per 90 minutes in a United shirt than the likes of Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot.

And Erik ten Hag is considering dropping him from the team.

Weghorst failed to hit the net once more against Leeds on Wednesday and was hauled off around the hour mark for the third game running.
