Verratti: Messi Gets Away With Murder

Marco Verratti: Lionel Messi Gets Away With Murder

By Kurt Buckerfield - Mar 20, 2018 09:31 AM @KurtLaduma

After being sent off for dissent against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League recently, Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti has now claimed that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi does what he likes with referees without punishment.

Messi: Russia My Last Chance For WC Success

The Italian was given his marching orders in the second leg of his side's round of 16 tie against Los Blancos earlier this month after angrily protesting a decision made by the referee.

Verratti has since stated that he feels match officials should perhaps be more understanding, but also noted that Messi seemingly screams and shouts at referees with no consequences.

"I got it wrong against Real, but it was a red card out of frustration and sometimes referees could be more tolerant," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Whereas Messi goes around pointing his finger in the referee's face and doesn't even get punished."

'I'd Rather Have Messi Than Ronaldo'

Verratti has been sent off eight times in his club career so far, with five of those red cards coming with the French giants.

Do you agree with Verratti that Messi receives special treatment? Let us know in the comments section below.

@Thaboism Messi is a natural diver and screamer? that's the most stupid incorrect opinion I have ever heard. Messi is the one play who always try to keep play going even when fouled, he'd rather play the ball while on the ground, dribble players and pass the ball.

@Faysal . Yes its true he doesnt play rough football but If a player is roughed up and he retaliates...both the fouler and the retaliating victim get cards. Messi pushes people and there are no consequences. There is a clip like that on you tube. The lil man does get frustrated and acts out his anger but he is never cautioned

Messi is a natural Diver and screamer and most refrees are his fans,he always go away with murder,you can also witness it on the comments here,his useless fans are talking about Ronaldo instead of talking to the subject about spoilt brat Messi
