Gunmen attacked an Argentina supermarket owned by Lionel Messi‘s wife Antonela Roccuzzo’s family and left a chilling message for the footballer. On CCTV, one of two men on a motorcycle was seen walking up to the premises in Messi’s hometown of Rosario and repeatedly firing at metal shutters over the windows and front door.

Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez were among the guests. Xavi recently hinted that his former teammate could be returning to La Liga, implying that the decision is still in the hands of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.
