Barcelona will have to pay €3000 for Leo Messi’s tribute to Diego Maradona in the 4-0 Osasuna win and here’s why:
As the FIFA rules stipulate, the players are not allowed to lift their shirts to display any emblem, logo, slogan, acronym, drawing, etc.

As a reminder, Leo revealed Maradona’s Newell’s shirt after scoring Barca’s 4th in the Osasuna win on Sunday. It was a tribute to the Argentine great who passed away last week.
