The press punishes Messi

The red one for attacking Villalibre puts him in the spotlight worldwide after the defeat in the Super Cup. It is spoken from 'the fog' to the collapse through impotence.


Leo Messi had one of his worst games with FC Barcelona this Sunday. The Argentine faced Athletic touched but forced in search of the first title of the season. Nothing further.

The 10 intervened in Barça's first goal but was far from his best version. When he saw how the final he had in his hand escaped him because of the goals of Villalibre and Iñaki Williams, Rosario's man went crazy, attacking the young rojiblanco striker. The VAR notified Gil Manzano. Direct red, the first he sees with Barcelona.

The game was followed worldwide and Messi, once again, was in the spotlight of a press that describes his performance as affected 'by a fog' and that speaks of impotence and collapse.England: mist and sinking

From England, the Daily Mail speaks of the 'red mist of Leo Messi'. How he was blinded to see the first red in his career in Barcelona and close in the worst way a difficult defeat to assume. "The captain lost his head in overtime where they missed the final," says Daily Mail.

In The Guardian they value Athletic's feat by turning the game around to win the title and they talk about a sunken ship in Barcelona. 'Messi expelled against Athletic, which sinks Barça to win the Super Cup', they head from this newspaper.

Argentina talks about impotence

In Argentina they lived more closely with that frustrated Leo and they know what they are talking about when they talk about 'impotence' or 'frustration'. These two concepts run through your press. 'Messi, frustrated as never' headlines Olé. This same newspaper speaks of 'heated' by the Argentine star to refer to the expulsion and they make a profile of Villalibre mixing the 'horn' and the trumpet, with which he celebrated the title, with a 'Leo trumpeted it and played the trumpet'.

'Messi and the red one of impotence 'headlines TyC Sports while Clarín repeats the concept for the red one and raises the defeat to a nightmare level. 'Messi saw the red and Barcelona leaves empty-handed', they headline after the bad dream and two points.

Italy and its' manata'

Leo's aggression opens the 'Calcio estero' section of Gazzetta Dello Sport on its website. 'Super Cup for Athletic going back to Barça! Messi loses his head: punch and red!' they state in their headline among a good number of exclamations. In the opinion they speak of a 'sad end' for the Barça player. 'Athletic was the lion devouring a Barça that touched the title', they sentenced.

France focuses on the team and Portugal, on Leo

In L'Equipe they focus their criticism on the team and speak of 'destruction' by Athletic against Barcelona. In Portugal, meanwhile, they return to focus on Leo Messi with a 'Messi lost his head' shared by both Record and A Bola, where they also worry about a possible sanction.
