Messi Statue Vandalised (Again)

Messi Statue Vandalised (Again)

Reports emerged today confirming that a statue to our superstar striker, Lionel Messi, has been vandalised.

The statue, which was stood in the Argentine capital city of Buenos Aires, was unveiled in June 2016.

The act of vandalism carried out today wasn`t the first time the statue had been damaged.

The latest incident has seen the statue chopped off at the ankles with the rest of the statue just lying on the pavement.

Here at Vital Barcelona, sat in the editorial chair, I`m having trouble understanding why such an act of sheer vandalism was carried out.

After all, as well as being a hero at the Camp Nou, Messi also is worshipped by the football supporting folk of Argentina who should be thankful for his recent exploits

Only recently, with Argentina looking as if they wouldn`t qualify for the 2018 World Cup, in Russia, it was Messi that came to the fore and guaranteed their place in the tournament by scoring a hat-trick in the vital qualifier against Ecuador.

It makes you wonder just what it is about some people!
