Barcelona star Messi "very calm" over tax issues

Barcelona star Lionel Messi says he's calm over his Spanish tax problems.

The 25-year-old and his father Jorge Horacio will appear for questioning in September as part of an investigation into alleged tax fraud in relation to the player's image rights.

"I am very calm," Messi told "We have consultants who are handling these matters and we trust them. We hope to find a solution.

"I don't understand any of it and that's why we have lawyers."
