Lionel Messi is not a controversial figure when compared to his Ballon D’Or rival Cristiano Ronaldo thus it was shocking to see Messi getting involved in a fight quite needlessly against Roma’s Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.
Barcelona played their last friendly before the season begins in a fortnight and Lionel MEssi seems all ready and heated up for the start, maybe a bit too much.
While Barcelona were leading the game against Roma till the 34′, Messi did not like Yanga-Mbiwa’s reaction after Messi tried to dribble it after the referee had blew the whistle. What happened next was shocking to see, clearly because it came of Lionel Messi. This was something not many had seen before. Watch the video and watch it again and then try rubbing your eyes and watch it again.
