It was only a few weeks ago that Argentina lost the final to Chile for the second time in two years in a row and shortly after that defeat, Messi stunned the world by announcing his retirement from international football.
This news baffled the whole sports world and the Messi fan started screaming after Messi’s return. This resignation made a lot of headlines.
Now Messi is back in the news and guys don’t go on the wrong track by assuming Messi refused to step down, then you are all wrong because the whole story isn’t like that.
This time around, Messi, the biggest superstar in football, hit the headlines for failing to pay his taxes and three tax-related crimes.
Yes, I know you are shocked, but this is the latest news on Messi. On Wednesday, the Spanish court fined Messi € 2 million and sentenced him to 21 years in prison for three tax offenses committed by Messi.
Today Messi stood before the Supreme Court with his father Jorge Messi for the final verdict of the crime. The Spanish Supreme Court has ruled the same for both Messi and his father Jorge Messi.
However, both father and son still have the option to appeal this judgment to the Supreme Court. It is also believed that Messi’s attorney will appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Barcelona superstar Messi told the media that he was unaware of all of these issues and that he and his father are innocent.
The whole world is completely stunned by the news and even the other sports superstar started tweeting about the matter.
Former England cricket team captain Micahel Vaughan tweeted: “Messi is the greatest superstar and he can even avoid this issue”.
Well it will be interesting to see how Barcelona officials react to this matter as they have always supported Lionel Messi throughout his career.
