Messi’s visit to Gabon

Organized at great expense by President Ali Bongo, the visit of Lionel Messi in Gabon is far from unanimous, especially on social networks.

The information had been leaked on Thursday on Mondafrique , kind of MediapartContinental before being confirmed by an official statement, then a player’s picture on the plane to Libreville. Yes, Lionel Messi arrives in Gabon. Obviously, he does not leave Barcelona for a transfer to FC 105 Libreville or AS Mangasport, but Barça star was there to answer the invitation of President Ali Bongo. Accompanied by Deco, his former teammate at FC Barcelona, ​​Argentina, on his arrival, took against the foot protocols. Its off the plane even epic, and cheerfully animated twittosphere the sarcasm. The dress code was particularly shocked. Messi shows up quietly on the tarmac at the airport with a torn shorts and a simple shirt, all stubbly … Officially, he is there to lay the first stone of the future stadium in Port-Gentil, with a view the African Cup of Nations 2017, held in Gabon. The Barcelona is also there to participate in the strike com ‘Ali Bongo, President of Gabon, and football fan. Ungrateful, and few look on his presidential function, the strong man of the country is then transformed into private driver for Barça star in the streets of Libreville. Together in a jeep, tied belts, they pretended the crowd … not to the liking of everyone. This escapade quickly ignited the Gabonese opposition. Bongo’s opponents felt that Messi came against a heavy financial consideration as the country is enormous social problem, and threatened by falling crude oil prices.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi received at least £2.4m in cash to lay a stone at a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations stadium in Gabon.

3.5 million euros for Messi!

The small African trip should bring him around 3.5 million. not bad ! And rather good news. Sticky in 2013 for his image rights, Messi has checked out 53 million euros in 2014 to the Spanish Tax Office. As for Gabon, where much of the population does not benefit from oil revenues, the distraction of politics or “circus games” is increasingly denounced. Gabonese did not want the NPC and its heavy bill, they got it. Ali Bongo took advantage of its proximity to Issa Hayatou, President of CAF, to retrieve the organization of the CAN 2017 in a sham elections which nobody still knows the results of the examination. Headwind against what it sees as the waste of public money, the opposition has emerged as folders organized friendly matches against Brazil and Portugal to about 2 million euros … or the king’s visit Pelé for a few million.
