While Messi put up a show for Barcelona against PSG in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, the Argentine was also making the waves in Africa. The 29-year-old got labeled a “moron” by celebrity Egyptian archeologist, Zahi Hawass.

An angry Hawass accused Messi of showing no reaction after taking the star on a tour of the pyramids recently in the North African country.

The Egyptian said Messi was stone-faced, suggesting that the footballer’s mind is only on the game. However, Hawass’ chastisement of the erstwhile World Player of the Year provoked an angry reaction mainly from the star’s fans.

Hawass has since gone back on his word saying his remarks were misconstrued and that he didn’t mean to unleash insults towards Messi.

Over to Ghana, Premier League side, Tema Youth were victims of robbery which led to five players losing their mobile phones, monies, and other valuables. The incident happened this week while the side played Bechem United.

Burglars ransacked the newly promoted side’s dressing room that was under key and lock, according to Ghana Soccernet.

Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer, the club president, described the incident as double robbery saying this occurred just after his side got robbed by the referee in the pitch.

Still, in the domestic league in Ghana, Bolga All-Stars are set to get a new owner. The struggling Premier league side is on the brink of being bought outright by a traditional ruler-cum businessman, Nana Ameyaw.

The very moment documentations are finalized, the team will relocate to Techiman and named to Techiman Eleven Wonders.
