Critics of Copa America, Messi officially received a penalty

The American Football Association, yesterday, officially gave a penalty to Messi after voicing that Brazil was scheduled to win the Copa America.

Remember, after the match against Brazil in the Copa America semi-finals, Messi voiced the accusation of the referee’s mistakes and at the same time hinted that the organizers had arranged for the Brazilian host to become the champion.

Not only that, after the third-class match with Chile, Messi also confirmed that he received the red card as a result of the previous statement. “I don’t want to be part of this corruption. We should not be part of the disrespect that the entire team suffered during this tournament.”

Before the spokesman of Messi, the South American Football Federation affirmed that this is unacceptable because it affects the beautiful image that this organization is building over the years.

The South American Football Federation said: “In football, you have to accept winning, losing and accepting the problems of the match with unity and respect that are the foundation of fair-play spirit. Similar is the problem from the referee. People cannot be perfect.

Making such statements is disrespectful to the tournament, with all the players involved and hundreds of people of the South American Football Federation. The organization is working tirelessly for development. ”

The South American Football Federation officially gave a penalty to Messi. However, the surprise is that Messi’s punishment is much lighter than expected. Earlier, it was feared that El Pulga could be banned for 2 years because of the “no respect”.

However, the top South American football agency only decided to fine $ 1,500 with Messi. Besides, the player was also suspended for a 2022 World Cup qualifier because of the red card in the match against Chile.

Besides, the South American Football Federation also decided to withdraw Mr. Claudio Tapia (President of the Argentina Football Federation) from the position of South America’s official representative at FIFA. The reason was that this character had improper statements during the Copa America.
