Barcelona, June 2, 2016 (AFP) -Argentina football star Lionel Messi said Thursday his father handled his finances and he knew nothing about how his wealth was managed as he took the stand at his tax fraud trial for the first time.
"I was playing football, I had no idea about anything," the 28-year-old told the Barcelona court hearing the case on the third day of the trial. "I trusted my dad and my lawyers", he added.
