Hey Madrid, leave Messi alone
Lionel Messi normally has very little to be blue about. Less than 48 hours after it appeared the tax mess was behind him, a Spanish state attorney announced his intention to charge Leo with three counts of tax fraud and is seeking a 22-month prison sentence!
JUDICIAL WAR IN THE ‘MESSI CASE’
FISCAL: Decision to exonerate Leo after only 48 hours
HOUSE: The State Attorney asks for 22 months in jail
PLAYER: His defense claims contradiction between the two decisions
HE CONTINUES HIS RECUPERATION: Messi posted an image demonstrating tranquility on his social media accounts. He knows that in the worst case, he will not go to prison.

The Don is one step closer
It’s often said that every journey begins with a single step – the road to recovery is no different.
With the fan-base in mourning and the media’s Doomsday Clock ready to strike midnight, imagine who’s a sight for sore eyes?
Posting a photo of himself walking along the Carretera de les Aigües, replete with his trademark thumbs-up, Andrés Iniesta’s Twitter activity was a bit of relief for all. The Don let us know that “[a] week later, we keep moving forward. The countdown is on.”
With the midfielder stepping up his recovery, it won’t just be Iniesta who starts running. Watch out, La Liga.
