Leo Messi v Argentina FA
Happy birthday Leo Messi!
Today is the 29th birthday of the Argentinian superstar, however he’s not in the best of moods while on international duty.
Argentina have booked a place in the Copa America final, where they’ll take on Chile in a repeat on last year’s showpiece in Santiago which La Roja won on penalties.
On Thursday, La Albiceleste were travelling from Houston to New Jersey, however they were significantly delayed.
Messi calls out AFA on Instagram
Messi took to Instagram to voice his disgust with the AFA. He wrote:
Once again waiting on a plane to leave for our destination. What a disaster the AFA are. My god!
Messi was sat next to Sergio Aguero on the plane, and both striker looked mightily pissed off.
Messi’s Instagram post drew a response from the AFA, who released a statement, which read:
The Argentine Football Federation informs that the flight which is transporting the national team to New Jersey suffered a delayed departure due to weather issues. Also, the AFA advises that all of the scheduled times of the transfers are designated by the organizers of the Copa America Centenario.
