According to ABC, Messi’s intention of boosting morale may land him in hot water by breaching LaLiga rules that prevent gatherings of more than six.

 

The publication states that the barbecue observed social distancing with tables carefully laid out and that people were outside but adds that LaLiga officials were caught by surprise when reading in the media that Messi was hosting a get-together.

 

This comes after Atletico Madrid squad recently held a similar bonding exercise and were not punished by the league because they informed them ahead of time and made sure all protocols were followed.

 

An official is quoted by the Spanish publication as saying: ‘It is a different case because they (Atletico) told us in advance and they gave us all the details of what they were going to do.

 

‘The League was aware of that meal and all security requirements were met. The celebration of this barbecue, we have found out from the press.’
