Who was Lionel Messi's 'phone call' message directed to?

Sport EN

Lionel Messi scored two and set two goals up as Barcelona thrashed Celta Vigo 5-0 at Camp Nou. However one of the talking points from the game was his celebration after his first strike. 

Messi, like usual, looked up at the sky and dedicated it to his grandmother, but then things changed. He turned to the main stand and made the gesture of a phone call on a couple of occasions. With a serious face on, he looked like he wanted to send a message to someone. He also shook his hand in a way that is usually done for emphasis. 

The first interpretation has come from Gerard Romero on his show Moguts Pel Barca. He said: “Leo Messi dedicated the goal to his nephew who spent the afternoon calling him. He rang him all afternoon, which was very annoying. That was reiterated by Messi in the celebration.”
