Lionel Messi stays with team Ipswich used to beat

Football superstar Lionel Messi has announced he is staying at a team that Ipswich Town used to beat.

The Argentine will stay with Barcelona for the 2020/21 season.

Barcelona are a major European force but they used to struggle against the mighty Ipswich Town.

The Tractor Boys beat them 3-0 at home in the UEFA Cup as recently as 1977. And just to prove it was no fluke, they beat the Spaniards 2-1 in the Cup Winners’ Cup two years later.

Lionel Messi was not in the Barcelona squad for either of those matches.

Ipswich fan Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “My grandfather used to go on about beating Barcelona, bless him.”
