One of the Único chain supermarkets, owned by Lionel Messi’s father-in-law, was attacked with bullets this morning.
Two alleged hitmen fired at least 14 times against the premises, located on Lavalle street, west of Rosario, hometown of the world champion.
The gunmen also left a note with a threatening message, which is also addressed to Mayor Pablo Javkin.
“Messi we are waiting for you. Javkin is also a narco, he will not take care of you ”, reads the message written with a pen.
The police suspect that the attack is related to barrabravas, since a month ago Javkin had a meeting with Rosario Central’s coach, Miguel Russo.
The technical director affirmed that there are footballers who refused to play in Central due to the insecurity in the city.
