Jun 14, 2013, 01:19 IST |

Lionel Messi's legal representatives have not been notified of any complaint, but have insisted they will vehemently defend the forward's rights.

Messi’s legal and fiscal council Angel Juarez has stressed the Barcelona star has not been notified that a complaint has been filed over his alleged tax fraud, and added that the attacker’s lawyers are ready for a potential legal battle with the Spanish tax authorities. 

Under Spanish law, Messi could face a maximum penalty of six years in prison if found guilty.
