While in Argentina there is a lot of tension due to the investigation into the threats against Lionel Messithe footballer continues to enjoy sports at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and is silent about the controversial case, at least in front of the press, but his father has recently expressed himself.
Jorge Messi, father of the Argentine star, revealed that his son and Antonela Roccuzzo, his wife, they remain calm and plan to visit the South American country in the summeras they always have.
The 2022 world champion also asked his father to remain calm and trust the authorities’ investigations.
The newspaper The nation from Argentina revealed the conversation between Jorge and his son Lionel Messi: “I spoke to the baby, and he told me ‘stay calm’. Let’s travel on vacation”.
This revelation breaks with -something- the silence that the soccer player maintained after a week ago a supermarket owned by his wife’s family, located in the Argentine city of Rosario, was shot by antisocials who also left him a threat: “Messi will we are waiting. Javkin is a narco, he is not going to take care of you ”.
This fact has generated a great uproar throughout the country; from President Alberto Fernández, to other political figures, sports figures and clubs have spoken about it.
The authorities handle as the main hypothesis that it is the drug mafia that the streets of Rosario are disputed and that only in 2022 left more than 300 dead.
Messi concentrating on the PSG season
That Lionel Messi is concentrating on PSG and not on what happens in Argentina is understandable. His concern with his nation ended by handing him the World Cup, now the Gauls need the ’10’ to save the season at its peak.
Last weekend, the ‘Flea’ scored a goal for the Paris team to stay in the fight for the Ligue 1 title.
Now this Wednesday he will have to appeal to magic, together with Kylian Mbappé, to eliminate the always dangerous German Bayern Munich from the round of 16 of the Champions League.
