Lionel Messi smacks the ball at Real Madrid fans but doesn’t mean it. Honest.
Thanks to Spoiler reader, Greg…
Lionel Messi has always been seen as the exception to the rule that to be a proper good footballer you needed to be a bit of a ‘orrible git. You needed to like head-butting people (Zidane), make well late tackles (Scholes), be outrageously arrogant (CR7), shag prozzies (Wayne) or just do loads of drugs (Maradona). Messi was simply a nice little lad who liked playing football really well.
No longer! During their 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, Lionel Messi went and smacked a ball right into the Real fans and receives plenty back. His innocent face seems to suggest it was an accident but, as the Spanish press and a member of Team Spoiler have noted, if you do miss the advertising hoardings, surely your first move is to apologise?
The Spoiler says – deliberate! What do you reckon, you handsome lot?
