The expansion of an airport has been abandoned all because of Barcelona FC’s Argentine player, Lionel Messi. Reports have it that the expansion of El Prat Airport in Barcelona has been abandoned because continuing with it would lead to more air traffic above the footballer’s mansion in the coastal town of Castelldefels.
As for why a new additional runway located to the sea was discarded, the official explanation given is based on environmental and financial reasons. However, the president of Spanish low-cost airline, Vueling, offered a different perspective.
Javier Sanchez-Prieto said during a talk at Barcelona’s ESADE university.
“You cannot pass over where Messi lives,”
“This doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world.”
Vueling, based at El Prat de Llobregat, has hubs in Barcelona-El Prat Airport and Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport.
It is reported that the five times ballon d’or winner bought his neighbor’s house last year, to keep the noise level to a minimum around his home.
Still on Messi
Marco Verratti has hit at Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi with claims that referees always overlook his wrongdoings on the field of play. The Italian made this revelation while speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport about Paris Saint-Germain’s elimination at the hands of Real Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16, a game that saw the talented midfielder sent off for a second yellow.
“I got it wrong against Real, but it was a red card out of frustration and sometimes referees could be more tolerant,” Verratti said.
“It was a bad reaction but I didn’t insult anybody, whereas Messi goes around pointing his finger in the referee’s face and doesn’t even get punished.
“But anyway, I need to improve.”
Messi usually holds a reputation as one of the calmer personas among the stars of world football. He has only been sent off once in his professional career, when he was shown red just 40 seconds into his Argentina debut in August 2005 for lashing out at an opponent who tugged his shirt.
