Messi – ecological outcast! The Western press counted his private flights – Other – Football – Sport


Lionel Messi, a mostly untouchable footballer, has become the target of criticism in France. The French press – especially the renowned daily L’Equipe – took aim at the emissions that are the result of his lifestyle.

It’s no secret that Argentina’s soccer bohemian has his own private jet. He uses it regularly. However, the journalists calculated that his plane had already consumed so many carbon emissions that an ordinary Frenchman would reach a similar value in roughly 150 years.

The French newspaper even took on the task of compiling a list of the flights that Messi took during the summer months. Between June 1 and August 31, he aired his jet 52 times. And most often on trips to their native country. To Argentina.

Routes from Paris to Miami or New York also appeared on the list of destinations. The French described this method of travel as devastating for the climate.

Messi has a kitchen, two bathrooms and a total of sixteen seats on board, which can be divided into eight beds. The iconic number 10 is not missing on the wings. The stairs are decorated with the names of his wife and three sons.
