After it have informed in the last hours of the ratification of the sentence of 21 months of prison for Leo Messi, from "FCBN" have wanted to remember a controversial interview conceded does some months to "The Spanish" by Luis Garicano, the economist chosen by the executive of Citizens to control one of the vicepresidencias and of the Party of the Alliance of Liberal and Democrat by Europe (ALDE).

Then the economist in question rushed forward duramente against the fiscal situation of Leo Messi, attacking to the Argentinian star of the FC Barcelona and to his surroundings when affirming that the "10" would have to be already in the prison by the purportedly defrauded money to Inland revenue.

However, in his statements did not mediate word on Cristiano Ronaldo, to the one who accused in the last months to having evaded around 150 million euros, diverting them purportedly to societies of the Virgin Islands.

Why it does not speak of Cristiano Ronaldo?

"In the world of the football have found us with that there is a situation of enormous fraud and here does not finish in the prison anybody. Leo Messi in United States would be right now in the prison. In Spain is practically impossible to finish in the prison by a fiscal crime. At the end, that there are effective and effective sanctions is very important so that it fulfil the law", soltó Garicano in the interview in question.

The statements generated a big controversial, mainly by the fact of not mentioning in them to the one who theoretically would have defrauded more money that Leo Messi and that the rest of players of LaLiga Spanish, Cristiano Ronaldo, on the one who hardly speaks already in the media of the Spanish capital regarding his supposed fiscal fraud, destapado by "Football Leaks".
