Conmebol has announced a three-month penalty for Leo Messi , in addition to having to pay $ 50,000 for his split from the body after being eliminated from the Copa América.
Leo Messi left Conmebol after being eliminated against Brazil in the semifinals of the Copa América 2019. The captain of the albiceleste spoke of possible corruption of the South American football organization. “They got tired of charging bolucedes and did not go to the VAR, incredible,” said the Barcelona footballer that day.
“I hope Conmebol does something, although I don’t think he does it because Brazil handles everything, it’s very complicated,” added a Leo Messi who ended up insane in that Superclassic. In addition, in the match for third and fourth place ended up being expelled and cracked, even more, the body. “We don’t have to be part of this corruption that was done to us throughout this Cup,” he said.
In this way, Leo Messi will miss three FIFA dates , in which Argentina was going to play friendly against Chile, Mexico and Germany, so that no official match will be lost and will be under Scaloni at the beginning of the phase of qualification of the World Cup of Qatar 2022.
