Respect! Injured Lionel Messi takes picture with disabled fan after Betis win
The news Lionel Messi will be out for the rest of 2013 is one of the big football stories of the day.
Barcelona’s Argentine forward will miss the next 6 to 8 weeks after picking up a muscle tear at Betis and it could well be a blessing in disguise after a busy summer of travel and the upcoming World Cup in 2014.
Messi continued to prove he is a “good boy” – as described by Sepp Blatter at the Oxford Union recently – with a touching gesture after Barcelona’s 4-1 win at Real Betis.
The Barcelona talisman looked understandably disappointed as he left the Estadio Benito Villamarín, but still found time to take a picture with a disabled fan waiting outside.
