Manchester United midfielder, Scott McTominay has come out to say that Lionel Messi mistakenly blamed him for an elbow incident when both sides met in the past.
McTominay recently revealed that the Argentine was even reluctant to give him the jersey that Romero sent him to collect when he asked because he felt he was the one who elbowed him.
According to him, he had to quickly correct the Barcelona maestro about the incident, and now the jersey currently lives in his bedroom.
He added that Messi is definitely the best player in the world because he has had an excellent career.
His words, “Messi, 100 per cent. Yeah, Messi, Messi. I got his shirt, you know?”
“So, whenever we played against him for Barcelona [in 2019], Chris Smalling elbowed him and he’s got blood coming out of his nose. And he thought it was me.”
“Because I said to Sergio Romero: ‘Please can you ask Messi to get his shirt?’.”
“Sergio comes back in and said: ‘Oh, he thinks you were the one who elbowed him on the halfway line’. I said: ‘No, no, no, no – tell him it wasn’t me, so make sure I get that shirt because that’s going in my bedroom’. So he knows it wasn’t me now.”
“Sorry Chrissy, but he was the one who roughed him up a bit.”
