    I wonder where is Lionel Messi ( Professional Argentinian football player) in LaLiga Legends team . We all know that he made lots of money playing in Club FC Barcelona, but the country ( Spain) did not let him take his hard earned money out of the country due to fabricated stories about illegal money laundering. I was in Argentina when the news broke out back in July of this year. People in Argentina called it Jewish conspiracies against him. Ask all of the players arrived in Tehran, I am sure they all miss him a lot. Without Messi, Barcelona team would rank 4th or lower.
