Ridiculous story of the week: Messi to play for Newell’s in bid to win Copa Libertadores!


Newell’s Old Boys play their Copa Libertadores Quarter Final Second leg with Boca Juniors on Wednesday and fantastical rumours began to circulate that should they progress they would be calling on Rosario’s most famous export, Lionel Messi to boost their chances of lifting the coveted trophy. As CONMEBOL technically would allow this it would have been a possibility and so with Newell’s on the brink of history and Messi now enjoying time off after the Spanish season someone dreamt up this situation and more remarkably Clarin took it seriously enough to contact Jorge Messi, Lionel’s father. Naturally he has told us all what we all already know and said that it’s crazy and won’t be happening. However, as a scene from the potential Messi movie this would have been epic.
