LIONEL MESSI'S Inter Miami team-mate Robert Taylor dressed up as the Argentine's bodyguard, Yassine Cheuko for Halloween.
And the Finland midfielder received the seal of approval for the outfit from the former soldier and MMA fighter.
Inter Miami star Taylor took inspiration from someone very close to his footie pal Messi for his Halloween costume this year.
The 22-year-old made a hilarious imitation of Messi's bodyguard Cheuko.
Taylor wore Inter Miami tracksuit bottoms and a polo and topped the outfit with a bald cap, fake beard and even an arm sleeve with fake muscles.
He tagged Cheuko on his Instgram story of him wearing the outfit and said: "Thank you for the idea😎."
