Vandals cut down the sculpture of the iconic star from the ankles completely ruining

For many, the segment of Argentina sports fans who think Lionel Messi left their nation too early has been one of these groups.

A statue of Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been destroyed by vandals in Buenos Aires.

The post Messi's statue in Argentina has its legs cut off appeared first on Vanguard News.

The statue is situated on the banks of the river La Plata which is in the district of Puerto Madero in the capital city of Buenos Aires. Police said they had no information about the identity of the perpetrators.

In case you didn't know.

That statue had been unveiled just a few days after Chile beat Argentina in the Copa America final and the Barcelona star had announced his global retirement.

The five-times Ballon d'Or victor will undoubtedly go down as one of, if not the, greatest footballer to have ever graced the game, but fervent Argentina fans are less than convinced.

It is unclear whether this statue will be repaired or replaced.

The sculpture forms part of a so-called "glory walkway" alongside other Argentine stars such as Diego Maradona, F1 world champion Juan Manuel Fangio, tennis stars Gabriela Sabatini and Guillermo Vilas and NBA basketball sensation Manu Ginobili.

The Spaniard would love to lure Messi to Manchester to help him establish City as the most powerful and successful side in Europe.
