Oh, no he is leaving international football.... so sad!





Read more here……… http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/36637591

I hope not………..he is still the ultimate player in my books.

Personally, I think he has had enough from the pressure of management and FIFA officials; he seems a bit torn by his decision to leave but obviously has been given an order (Gagged) not to say anything.

I think the politics of the sport gets down dirty behind the locker rooms.

I want him to play, damn he is so good and so much to offer, but if his heart is no longer in it.

Then cheers thanks for the great memories all the best for his future endeavours.

Oh men so sad!




Keep on kicking on Messi - Lionel Messi Magic Forever!

Cheers

    Oh yeah,

    This is what happened to...........damn Messi got hit twice...............

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/07/06/lionel-messi-sentenced-to-21-months-in-prison-after-being-found/



    According to the prosecutor’s office for tax crimes in Catalonia, the sale of Messi’s image rights had been hidden using a complex web of shell companies in Uruguay, Belize, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

    The 29-year-old has always denied any knowledge of his tax affairs, saying he “only worried about playing football”, while his father claimed he left it all up to financial advisers.

    But summing up the case, the presiding judge, Mercedes Armas Galve, wrote of the five-time world player of the year: “[His] avoidable ignorance, which was derived from indifference, is not an error, and it does not remove responsibility.


    Trust me when I say this and I believe it with my heart that they are not a criminally minded family. They simply had shonky financial advisers who had power over his situation and took him and his father to the cleaners.

    The family are from a poor part of Argentina not very educated even on matters of business or even legalities of contract law and financial planning.

    It seems that a relationship of trust was built with Messi's family and financial advisors but on a web of lies and deceit of mismanagement by the trustees.

    The saddest part he must have signed power of attorney and allowed the trustees all the financial decisions on their behalf.

    Sadly, this ignorance does not stand in courts and is ruled against the accused harshly.

    Poor people they simply got played by the system, its so easy to get sucked in these things , trust no one!

    The saddest thing is, they are liable due to taxation laws.

    The trustees normally sly away as a contract was signed, but not understood, its disgusting.

    I believe this is the case as per many links online and the judge court ruling escaping jail terms having found them guilty under law but morally ignorant, only having to pay a hefty fine of over 4million in back taxes and penalties...................Poor people, they got robbed!

    Oh, damn how sad, oh men I'm really gutted for them.

    Just utterly gutted and disgusted at a legal system that still fails in this manner!

    Arrgggg!

    No my friend, what I said in post above is pretty much how it works out if you're not switched onto these things.

    Ask around..... or Google and read/research yourself or just read the link provided and go from there.

    Sad m8, just sad.

    I'm expecting a thread in a few months time about Messi returning to international football, even though it's all but confirmed atm.

    Messi new what he was doing.
    No matter where you're from or you're background you know how to pay tax. He is a criminal.

    That's quite bigoted. I file my taxes with the help of my tax advisor, and only go through it more or less thoroughly, and I'm nowhere near 40+ million dollars a year. Those millions also don't come from a single source.

    You don't know how much of a pain in the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it is to file and pay your taxes correctly. It's not an excuse, but I believe him when he says he had no idea.

    Hahahaha.... No idea, no jail... Well:
    I will kill someone and put him the gun to his forehead and play Russian roulette... Then I tell the police: I had no idea that the bullet is locked already.... He is a criminal and must be sit next to Germans!

    That's not what I said. I'm aware that not knowing something doesn't protect you from prosecution. However, he has received his sentence. I don't know why everyone is so bitter. Even if you're a Messi hater, do you really want to see the world's best footballer rot away in jail when he could still be playing? You have no idea if he was aware or not, neither do I, yet you judge.

    I do know, but I cannot believe anyone doesn't realise when something like this is happening. He deserve s a prison sentence, end of.

    That's not for you to decide, those whose task it is to decide his sentence have done so.
