It’s Lionel Messi’s world, we’re all just living in it.
How else can you explain that the Barcelona star only received a yellow card for this head-butt and choke-grab on Roma’s Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa?
Messi Head-Butts and Chokes AS Roma’s Player
Somebody get that man a Snickers bar, ASAP! Messi is not acting like himself…
Seriously, that kind of nonsense gets you sent off 11 times out of ten, whether it’s in a UEFA Champions League final or a meaningless preseason friendly.
But he’s Messi, so, you know. Let’s give him a pass?
This brings up an important question, though. Is Messi trying to become more of a badass suddenly? Would explain all the tattoos! Or has Luis Suarez started to rub off on him?
Stay tuned, everyone. #AngryMessi may become a new thing this season.
