Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward, Lionel Messi has reportedly received a threatening note from gunmen who attacked a supermarket owned by his in-laws in Rosario, Argentina.
Nobody was injured in the attack which took place yesterday, March 2, 2023, and it is unclear why the gunmen would target Messi or the Unico supermarket in the country’s third largest city of Rosario.
According to authorities, two men on a motorcycle fired at least a dozen shots into the Rosario Unico that is owned by the family of Messi’s wife, Antonella Roccuzzo. They then left a note on cardboard that reads “Messi, we’re waiting for you. (Pablo Javkin, the mayor of Rosario) is also a drug dealer, so he won’t take care of you.”
Messi is yet to say anything on this. Messi is a revered footballer in Argentina, especially since he led the national team to the country’s first World Cup victory in 36 years in Qatar in December.
In Rosario, prosecutor Federico Rebola said authorities were reviewing security camera footage and that the investigation was “Preliminary”. It was the first time Messi’s in-laws had received this kind of threat.
