Liverpool Fans Start Petition to Get Leo Messi Banned for ‘Punching’ Fabinho

Liverpool fans have started a petition to ban Leo Messi for next week’s Champions League semi-final second-leg after his clash with Reds midfielder Fabinho last night.

The mercurial Argentine put in a typically brilliant display at the Nou Camp last night as Barca triumphed 3-0 over Jurgen Klopp’s men, scoring an absolutely sensational free-kick in the second-half.

But Messi’s night wasn’t completely plain-sailing, and his clash with Fabinho seems to be a log some Liverpool fans are clinging to ahead of the return match.

Messi was yellow carded after colliding with the Brazilian midfielder in the 80th minute after trying to play a one-two around him, and some Liverpool supporters are accusing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner of punching their player – and want a retrospective ban handed down as punishment, as thier Change.Org petition shows:

That’s one way of stopping him, eh?

Of course, we reckon it’s unlikely anything will come of the petition, but what do you think?
