Lionel Messi is the captain of Barcelona
Press reports have confirmed that the Spanish club Barcelona will be fined after its Argentine captain, Lionel Messi, towards his late compatriot, Diego Maradona.
Messi scored the fourth goal 4-0 at Osasuna on Sunday evening, in the 11th round of the Spanish League, and celebrated by showing the shirt of the Argentine team Newell’s Old Boys, who had previously played Maradona in its ranks, and in it, Leo began his football career when he was a child.
This came days after the former Argentine player and world soccer legend died at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack.
The Spanish newspaper “Sport”, which is close to the Catalan club, said that Messi’s celebration will lead to the imposition of a fine of 3 thousand euros on Barcelona, according to the regulations of the International Football Association “FIFA” and his government.
Lenglet knocks the last nail in the coffin of Barcelona’s defense.
The newspaper published the text of Article 91 of the Disciplinary Code of the Spanish Football Association, which reads: “The player who raises his shirt and displays any kind of advertisements, slogans or messages, whatever their content or purpose, his club will be punished with a fine of up to 3 thousand euros in addition to receiving a card Yellow “.
It is noteworthy that Matteo Lahues, the referee of the Barcelona-Osasuna match, did not hesitate to announce the yellow card in Messi’s face after his celebration, a behavior that was criticized by several journalists in the Catalan media.
On the night of his honor, Messi tries to clone Maradona’s hand.
Critics argue that the referee should have disregarded Liu’s celebration, in which he commemorates a legend that is being honored and mourned in various soccer stadiums around the world today.
