Messi Punched In The Face At Rosario Restaurant

Fri Jun 03, 2011 1:04 am

He was eating at a restaurant and as he went outside he was asked for autographs, and he nicely agreed. As he was signing an unidentified teenager approached Messi wearing a jacket and hoodie (almost wintertime), and swiped at Messi's face shouting ''pecho frio!". This is an expression literally meaning ''cold chest'', but better translated as ''choker'', in apparent reference to his performances in the national team.

The suspect then fled as a group of high school students present during the incident began chasing the agressor. So far the person is not in custody nor is it known if Messi filed a police complaint.

He was without any personal custody as it is customary for football players in Argentina. I wonder if Barcelona will force it upon him now! Picture taken moments after showing Messi seems at least superficially unhurt:

I read something different in the French and Spanish media. They said the the attacker was from Rosario Central and because Messi was coming from Newell's, he verbally attacked him.

Also, I went to the website of the place where was Messi and it is written: "Qué lío, Messi. En el club te bancamos". What does that mean?

Some people are jealous if a person gains fame and they act stupidly like this person. Messi is a great talented player, even me as a MAN U supporter i have to admit that he is good really good.

they are playing with the words: "Lio" means "mess", but it's also his first name. Basically they are saying "What a mess, Messi, In the club we are on your side"

Just about when this story was over...

Mother of accused agressor defends her son as ''very clumsy''

''He is just very clumsy, he trips a lot when he gets excited''. This was the official explanation of the mother of the 17 year old accused of a physical agression against superstar Lionel Messi.

Silvia Van Donselaar stated she would like to apologize to Messi and his entire family for the incident.

"My son didn't want to do that'', said Van Donselaar in a state of shock to media reporters. ''Martin P.'', her son, attends the 5th year at the Colegio Latinoamericano in Rosario. ''When he saw him (Messi), he got excited and wanted to grab him, and because he is very clumsy, he tripped'', before stating her son is not a Barrabrava (Hooligan member), and he rarely goes to football matches.

Van Donselaar also added that her son is ''shocked'' about what happened and how the event has received coverage.

However, eyewitnesses claim that after the incident and as people present shouted things at the agressor, the teenager turned around and made obscene gestures.

Student now has police protection

Rosario Chief of Police, Hernan Brest, has decided that the supposed agressor of Lionel Messi needs taxpayer protection to prevent any possible backlash against his wellbeing for his presumed actions.

"We have determined this measure due to the online reports of a protest in front of the high school where this individual studies, as wel as comments by fans and hooligans of Newell's Old Boys, of ''countemeasures'' against him'', said Brest.

Messi meanwhile has not pressed charges thus the police cannot formally take action. Messi has said in a communique that he is "perfectly fine", and is astounded at the coverage this has received.

Guido Buccazotti, a local friend of the Messi family, has stated the family would like to ask the public to leave the teenager and his family alone, and that they consider the incident closed, even if others or the police do not.
