An Argentine fan who also supports River Plate of Argentina reportedly spat on Lionel Messi on Sunday evening after his club Barcelona celebrated winning the Club World Cup title in Japan where he scored in the 3-0 win. While heading through the Narita International Airport in Tokyo, he was allegedly abused by an irate fan.
According to Spanish magazine Marca, Messi, who some football fans in Argentina don’t like because they feel he shows more loyalty and zeal towards Barcelona than Argentina, was about to confront the fan when teammates Mascherano, Luis Suarez and coach Luis Enrique came to calm down the arising tension.
