Barcelona star Lionel Messi banned for four matches for insulting referee

La Liga’s all time top scorer Lionel Messi used insulting language in front of match officials during Argentina ‘s 1-0 win over Chile in FIFA world cup qualifiers at home stadium. It rarely happens in case of Lionel Messi to get banned as he is more of a quite and calm player. It was a tough match and strongest national rivals that could be a reason for Messi being arrogant said Edgardo Bauza coach of the team.

It was a struggling win against Chile as Messi scored a penalty in first half in the 16th minute, whereas Bauza’s boys failed in taking three points against the  match played on Wednesday against Bolivia, it was a 2-0 defeat for the team in the absence of the most crucial man and captain Lionel Messi.

Lionel Messi is currently at the top of La liga scorers with 25 goals followed by Luis Swarez with 21 goals and his intense rivalry Cristiano Ronaldo with 19 goals. Bluagrana’s superstar is also leading in UEFA Champions League with 11 goals after creating a historical comeback against PSG in Camp Nou with fantastic win of overcoming a 4 goal lead by hitting 6 goals in against of 1 goal netted by Cavanni.

Argentina is currently placed 5th in the table with Brazil leading and Columbia at second position. Uruguay is currently below Columbia at third position followed by Chile placed at number four. There’s still no report of apology from the player but let’s hope for better consequences. Lionel Messi will miss four of their five world cup qualifier matches, he can join team’s final qualifier against Ecuador scheduled on October 10. There’s still no report of apology from the player and let’s hope for better consequences.
