Messi & Barcelona team-mates under investigation by La Liga for lunch meeting at club captain’s house
Spanish top-flight authorities are looking into a possible breach of Covid-19 protocols relating to members of the Barca first-team squad
Lionel Messi and his Barcelona team-mates are under investigation by La Liga for a lunch meeting at the club captain’s house earlier this week, Goal can confirm.
Spanish top-flight officials are looking into the possibility that the Barca squad breached the current coronavirus rules in place in Catalonia, which state that only groups of up to six people can meet in an indoor or outdoor setting at any one time.
Messi hosted a team meeting at his residence in Castelldefels on Monday to begin preparations for this weekend’s crunch fixture against Atletico Madrid, but the players could now be hit with sanctions if they are found guilty of flouting social distancing protocols.
