Accusations from Royston Drenthe of racial abuse directed his way by the world best player, Lionel Messi have been rejected by Barcelona. The Catalan giants have quickly leapt to the defence of their man after Drenthe’s comments this week.

Drenthe is currently on loan at Everton but is currently side lined for his own disciplinary problems. He made the accusations against Messi in an interview with the Dutch magazine, Helden. He claimed he was taunted by Messi in their El Classico meetings in La Liga, with the Argentine calling him “negro” on a number of occasions.

MESSI IS BETTER THAN NEYMAR

Argentina football legend Diego Maradona has said that his Brazilian counterpart Pele is stupid for comparing Lionel Messi with Brazilian sensation Neymar.

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has said that AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has the ability and the skill to win the FIFA Ballon d'Or award one day.

MESSI TAKES THIRD BALLON D'OR
