VARcelona? Messi throws the ball at referee in Alaves clash and doesn’t get sent off

01 Nov 2020

Lionel Messi got away with some shocking disrespect to referee Hernandez Hernandez during Barcelona’s 1-1 draw against Alaves.

Before half-time, Messi was frustrated that play was halted for a foul and lashed out on the referee by hitting the ball straight at him.

Amazing, despite his blatant show of disrespect, the referee only brandished a yellow card – when for any other player it would’ve been a sending off!

Of course, Real Madrid fans are understandably angered by this and called out the double standards after the incident.
