The threat to Leo Messi “removes” him from Argentina, Gabriel Heinze guarantees

Former Argentina international Gabriel Heinze confirmed on Thursday that the threat had been made by a group of drug dealers against Leo Messi and his family to “remove” Rosario’s star from his country of origin.

This is reported by the technical director of the Old Boys of Newell de Rosario, captain of the youth team of the Argentina national team.

This one is attentive to everything, to every person and to everything this is. This, of course, alienates Leo and everyone else. We’re talking about this because he’s Leo, but there are also a lot of people who would like to go back (to Argentina).

The former Real Madrid player who shared a dressing room with Messi in Alviceles between 2005 and 2010 described as “madness” what happened at dawn on Thursday when Messi’s in-laws were shot dead by a group of drug dealers in Rosario.

The Olympic champion later commented.

We talk about him being our player, also because of the relationship I have (with Messi), but it’s all crazy and makes you think.

The former player of Manchester United, Olympique de Marseille and Roma, among others, returned to his country in 2015 to train Godoy Cruz, an “irresponsible” decision he repeated because it did not take into account the insecurity in Argentina.

It’s irresponsible of me, but it’s true, I didn’t think about it. The decision led me to other things, but I recognize it is irresponsible on my part.

“It’s crazy what happened to Messi’s family. He’s our player. It makes you think of a lot of things as if they’re worth it. This alienates Leo and all the other players who want to come back. There are a lot of guys who want to come back. come back”.

The Rosary Club, where Messi played in the youth teams before coming to Barcelona, ​​has often been cited as one of the possible targets for removing the ‘flea’ from the lawns.
