Lionel Messi Complains About Being Only Player Blood and Urine Tested on Doping Day

Lionel Messi today complained about being the only one from five players tested on doping day who had to give blood and urine samples.

The Barcelona star took to Instagram after hitting a stunning hat-trick in his side’s 5-1 victory over Espanyol on Sunday night.

He posted this picture and said:

Doping day. Out of 5 chosen players, only I had to get my urine and blood tested. Weird, right…

It brings up more discussion on doping in Spanish football and sport in general.

But who can blame Spain’s football hierarchy for suspecting Messi – he’s superhuman! (Of course we’re only kidding!)
