Argentinian footballing superstar Lionel Messi will be given access to FIFA 96 in prison.

The news comes as the Barcelona player was given a jail term for being a naughty boy in his tax affairs.

A spokesman for Messi told WalesOnCraic:

“We’ve got Lionel a nice Mega Drive and a copy of FIFA 96 that he can play in his cell. He can pretend he’s Francesco Totti or something to keep his footballing skills up. The last thing we want is for him to lose his footballing skills so by keeping him on the Mega Drive, he can be as good as any of the people who play on it at home. We’ve also got him a ZX Spectrum and a copy of Match Day II if he gets bored with that FIFA crap.”

A spokesman for the Prison Service said:

“Meh.”
