Lionel Messi punished

Yes, the title is correct and there is nothing wrong with it. Even if it is hard to believe, the little magician is penalized for insulting the linesman referee against Chile last Thursday and this reported to the match delegate. He was given four matches forced rest (one has already done), and now is expected to return to the team at the last round of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers for Russia 2018 against Ecuador. FIFA also gave him a 'little present' for those bad words - Messi has to pay 10.000 Swiss francs (9.338 euros) fine.
This banning applies only for Argentina's official international (qualifying) matches, and not the club where he plays.
