Barcelona and Argentina forward, Lionel Messi told the court on Thursday during his trial for alleged tax fraud that he has nothing to do with the management of his finances.
During the court hearing, the Argentine captain told the Judge that he trusted his father and his lawyer with the management of his finances.
He said that he never believed his father would fool him anytime he was asked to sign any document by his father.
“I was playing football, I knew nothing.
“I only worry about playing football,” he said to the court.
The five-time ballon d’or winner and his father, Jorge, were accused of defrauding the tax agency in Spain for more than €4 million between 2007 and 2009.
