Argentina and Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for tax fraud, Spanish media say.

His father, Jorge Messi, was also given a jail term for defrauding Spain of €4.1m (£3.2m; $4.6m) between 2007 and 2009.

During the trial, prosecutors said tax havens in Belize and Uruguay were used to conceal earnings from image rights.

But Lionel Messi said he "knew nothing" about his financial affairs.


Widely reported that it's actually a suspended sentence and he won't spend a single day in jail as long as he pays him fine and doesn't get caught again.

Not sure putting people like him in prison is 100% necessary prison should be for people who are danger to society but more needs to be done to make sure that those who are high earners are paying tax properly not manipulating the system as at the end of the day it's the people of Spain or whatever country they're doing it in who lose out.

Barcelona have punished a club official for expressing a "personal opinion" about forward Lionel Messi "that does not match that of the club".

Pere Gratacos lost his main post at the club after saying "it was not only Messi" who got them through a Copa del Rey tie with Athletic Bilbao.

Barca reached the quarter-finals with a 4-3 aggregate win thanks to a 78th-minute Messi free-kick on Wednesday.

Gratacos said: "Messi wouldn't be as good without Andres Iniesta or Neymar."

He added: "Obviously Leo is the most important player of the team but it was Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique as well - the whole team - who got us through."

In a statement on Friday, Barca said Gratacos would be replaced as head of sporting relations with the Spanish Football Federation, but would retain a role within the club's youth academy.

He made the comments after Barca were drawn to play Real Sociedad in the last eight of the Spanish Cup.

Messi, 29, is yet to agree a new contract with Barcelona, with his deal set to expire in 2018.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been with the Spanish club since he was 13. Speaking in November, club president Josep Bartomeu said he was "convinced" Messi would end his career at Barca.


People say Ronaldo is the one with the ego
