HOT: Lionel Messi faces two-year ban following bad comments about COMMEBOL

The Argentine captain Lionel Messi has violated regulations when insulting the leaders of the South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL).

In a statement released in July 7th, CONMEBOL expressed dissatisfaction with Lionel Messi's recent comments. "Given the allegations that show disrespect to the tournament, the participating players as well as hundreds of professional workers of CONMEBOL are unacceptable. CONMEBOL is an organization that has worked tirelessly since 2016 to transparent, professionalize and develop South American football ", the statement has the above paragraph.

According to South American media, Lionel Messi will face many penalties. CONMEBOL's regulations prohibit insulting this organization and its members.

In the coming days, CONMEBOL will likely meet to make a ban on Lionel Messi. The captain of the Argentina football team may be banned from playing for two years in tournaments run by the organization. If that happens, Lionel Messi will not be able to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2020 Copa America - a co-event in Argentina and Colombia.

After defeating the Chilean football team to win the bronze medal on July 6th, Lionel Messi accused the organizers of 2019 Copa America of corruption and arrangements to win the Brazil football team. He therefore refused to accept the bronze medal.

After a few days of the semi-final defeat against the Brazilian football team, Lionel Messi was also angry when he said that the referee had run the match poorly, ignoring two situations that deserved a penalty against the host. Finally, the 32-year-old striker believes that the red card he received in the match against the Chilean football team is the result of those statements.
