Lionel Messi given four-match ban



The Barcelona forward has been punished, with his international suspension starting on Tuesday in Bolivia.

A statement from FIFA said: 

“Footballer Lionel Messi has been found guilty of violating article 57 of the FIFA disciplinary code for having directed insulting words at an assistant referee.

“As a result, Lionel Messi will be suspended for four official matches and sanctioned with a fine of CHF 10,000 (£8,100).”
It added that the suspension was in line with the FIFA disciplinary committee’s previous rulings in similar cases.
