Messi: 'I didn’t collect my medal because we shouldn’t be part of corruption'
Lionel Messi gives his first interview after being wrongly sent off during the Copa America third-place playoff match. He explains his decision not to collect his medal as Argentina beat Chile 2-1. The Barcelona No.10 once again hits out at the 'corrupted' Copa officials, echoing his previous statement earlier this week.
In case you have forgotten, Messi was sensationally sent off in the middle of the Saturday evening's third-place playoff match between Chile and Argentina. All the pictures prove he did nothing wrong and was punched several times by Gary Medel.
