THE Italian press have today managed to do what nobody yet has managed to do to Lionel Messi…
No, not man-mark the dribbling sensation – embroil him in a bit of scandal.
The Corriere Dello Sport report that the Argentine midfielder as well as Diego and Gabriel Milito and Martin Palermo were among the guests at what they term an “alcohol and sex” party in Argentina.
The highly-improbable shindig was also attended by South American sex symbols such as reality TV star Xoana González, Playboy model Claudia Ciardone, underwear model Andrea Rincón, former WAG Sabrina Ravelli and more.
However the famously butter-wouldn’t-melt Messi sounds like he had fun – he is reported as saying: “We danced and then we played PlayStation.”
