Lionel Messi is one of the most popular football players in the world. In fact, he has already won the European Golden Shoes three times. Likewise, he has captured the UEFA Champions League title four times with FC Barcelona. It's only a matter of time before he becomes known as the greatest football player in history.
However, this incident might hurt his image. Read on!
The name of the player is Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and he didn't expect Lionel Messi to do this.
After all, he isn't lauded as the best player in the game for nothing.
Yes, he is just a human being, but what he did was truly something else.
We all know it can be tough, but this does not mean that he should hurt other players.
He was just given a yellow card. Would the outcome be different if he was a less popular and talented football player?
He was clearly having a rough time.
The Roma player on the right actually pushed Messi on the face to defend Yanga-Mbiwa.
However, we won't forget the tasteless attitude Lionel Messi gave during the game. After all, sportsmanship still matters in this day and age.
