Lionel Messi Received a Threatening Note

The store “Unico”, in the Lavalle district, is owned by the family of Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, in Argentina.

However, Police arrived to the scene after a reported 14 shots were fired at the store’s shutters and front door in the early hours of Thursday.

Two individuals on a motorbike were seen fleeing the scene, after leaving a sinister message for the PSG forward.

“Messi, we are waiting for you,” the note read. “Javkin is a drug dealer. He is not going to look after you.”

The messages refer to Rosario’s mayor, Pablo Javkin, who after the incident spoke out on the level of violence and need for more policemen in a city where crime is on the rise.

Rosario is the largest city in Argentina’s central province of Santa Fe, 300 kilometres (186 miles) north of Buenos Aires.

No people were harmed in Thursday’s attack, but significant damage is thought to have been done to the store.
