Lionel Messi is sick during Barcelona win

Published Add your comment

European football: beware. Beware because Barcelona are back and Lionel Messi looks in sparkling form – despite not being well.

Messi was the star of the show as the Liga champions demolished Levante 7-0 at Camp Nou on Sunday evening with a glittering display of their brand of tiki-taka.

However, all was not well with the Argentine when he came out for the second half.

Barcelona were already 6-0 up at half time when camera’s caught Messi walking on to the pitch for the second period and appeared to be gagging.

GMS don’t know what was wrong with the four-time Ballon d’Or winner, but there’s no denying he was trying to throw up.

New Barcelona manager Tata Martino took Messi off with a little under 20 minutes to go, and the little magician’s dicky tummy will have been in a factor in the Catalans dropping off majorly during the second half.

You can watch footage of Lionel Messi being sick on the pitch at half time above – thanks to Dirty Tackle for pointing it out to us.
