Actually best player in the world Leonel Messi has been banned from international football for three months after claiming the Copa America was ”corrupt”.

Leonel was sent off in Argentina’s 2-1 third-place play-off win over Chile and later said the “cup was fixed for Brazil”.

He has also been fined $50,000 by Conmebol, the South American Football Confederation.

Messi has 7 days to appeal Conmebol’s decision to suspend him.

The ban means Messi will miss Argentina’s upcoming friendlies against Chile, Mexico and Germany.

In response, Conmebol said accusations questioning the integrity of the Copa America were “unfounded” and “represent a lack of respect”.

Messi was shown a red card against Chile, following a clash with Medel, who was also dismissed.

Messi said:
“We don’t have to be part of this corruption, They have showed us a lack of respect throughout this tournament.”
