LIONEL Messi is arguably the best footballer on the planet – but he is rubbish in bed, it has been astonishingly claimed.
Argentine model Xoana Gonzalez said in 2011 she slept with the Barcelona superstar after a party.
But she has now sensationally opened up on the supposed incident – and slammed her compatriot for his performance in the sack.
Speaking on Peruvian TV, she said, “It was many years ago. In truth he was very young. But he knew what he was doing, was not minor, that was the important thing.
“His security told me ‘got someone you want to know’. I was curious to see who it was, and froze when I saw it was my idol Messi.
“I said that he is the wimp, though, because he sent his security to get me. There I noticed that he is very shy.
“We talked about music and cannot remember if he told me he had a girlfriend or not. After a while we went to his apartment in Puerto Madero.
“When one plays across the whole pitch you expect someone to return the favour. I wanted him to show me more than that. At one point I felt like I was with a dead body.”
Dad-of-two Messi, 29, is dating childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo.
The model’s comments compound a tough year for Messi, as he was sentenced to prison for tax fraud offences last month before missing a penalty in the Copa America final defeat to Chile. The pain has indeed been magnified by his closest rival Cristiano Ronaldo winning the European cup with Portugal last month.
On Tuesday the new Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza said one of his first tasks will be to speak to Messi, who plans to retire from international duty, but said the conversation would not be “about convincing him of anything.”
