Lionel Messi Is Officially Barcelona's Most Decorated Player In HIstory

Sevilla threaten to boycott Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona

Mesa was speaking after VAR, which is being implemented in La Liga this season, was called upon for the first time in Spanish football in the ninth minute of Barcelona's Spanish Super Cup win over Sevilla in Morocco on Sunday.

Usually a two-legged affair, the match will be settled after just one for the first time on Sunday.

A Sevilla club statement read: "Sevilla FC is surprised by the RFEF's statement 24 hours before the Super Cup".

Barca's new captain Messi lifted his first piece of silverware since inheriting the armband from former midfielder Andres Iniesta, and the Argentine also overtook the Spaniard as Barca's most decorated player with 33 trophies to his name.

Three of Barcelona's signings this summer are non-EU with Arturo Vidal (Chile), Malcom and Arthur (both Brazilian) favourites to be in the Blaugrana's matchday squad for the Supercopa and beyond.




"The club's legal department is studying the matter and should FC Barcelona line up with more than three non-EU players, it would present possible ground for withdrawal due to an improper line-up". Barca have taken four non-EU players to Morocco, including defender Marlon.

Club captain Lionel Messi and forward Luis Suarez already have European Union citizenship, while Brazilian Philippe Coutinho is thought to have obtained a Portuguese passport through his wife, Aine.

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde was not happy with the rule change either. "With all the trouble we have had this week with non-EU squad members, they could have warned us before".

Incredibly, the victory also scored the five-time Ballon d'Or victor his 33rd trophy in Blaugrana colours, moving him one ahead of the man he replaced as captain, Andres Iniesta - when it comes to the amount of silverware.
