Lionel Messi Is Now Aiding Syrian Rebels

Here’s something you don’t hear every day. Accordong to, Addounia, a Syrian state controlled TV channel, has accused FC Barcelona of helping to arm rebels in the war ridden country.

Even the most fervent of Real Madrid supporters will find this one a conspiracy theory too far. If it sounds ridiculous as a concept, it’s just plain hilarious in execution. The channel claims that if you reverse the image of Lionel Messi‘s run for his famous goal against Real Madrid in last year’s Champions League, then track his movement, it draws a route for rebels to get arms into the country.

We’re not making this up. Seriously. source 
someone has a little too much time on their hands imo
