The Spanish authorities will look into the barbecue organized by Lionel Messi with the entire FC Barcelona team. This type of gathering is currently prohibited.
La Liga and the Generalitat de Catalunya have opened an investigation after the barbecue organized by Lionel Messi at his home, with all the players of the FC Barcelona. The quota of 6 people authorized for this type of gathering, in these times of health crisis, has been greatly exceeded.
FC Barcelona has nothing to do with this, and does not risk anything, since it is from a personal initiative of Messi. However, the Catalan club is trying to defend its players, arguing that it was a “Working lunch”. A way of presenting things that will be difficult to hold, because the wives of the players and their children were also invited.
For the moment, the authorities are at the stage of collecting information. It will be necessary to see if negligence was committed on the part of Barça or more surely that of Messi and his teammates. The participants in this lunch ensure that all precautions were taken, because the guests were seated at different tables, to respect social distancing.
