Lionel Messi loves paying tax

Lionel Messi and his Dad are being investigated for tax fraud. How wonderful

The best player in the world ever earns quite a lot of money at the moment, but is being investigated for not paying £3.4million of tax between 2007 and 2009. It has something to do with selling his image rights through companies in Belize, wherever the hell that is, and because of various laws I can't really comment on how incredibly unlikely this is, but let's just say that Barcelona, Argentinian media and Messi himself are a bit surprised. The hormone loving forward said on his Facebook:
We have never committed any infringement. We have always fulfilled all our tax obligations, following the advices of our tax consultants who will take care of clarifying this situation."
The fact that Messi probably has a team of accountants who deal with this may become relevant at some point because I doubt Messi actually sits down and does his taxes himself. That would be like moaning at me for you getting food poisoning from the delicious chicken sandwich I made.

 Ummmm it's supposed to be pink? You think they'd put stuff you're supposed to cook out?  This isn't the 80s anymore you know.  it's illegal for Tesco to sell raw meat - don't you know anything? It's even more illegal for them to put it in a bin round the back of the shop so chill out. Did I say Tesco? I mean the post office. They're basically the same thing, I really wouldn't worry.
