Lionel Messi admits that he feels disappointed with Barcelona’s management, regarding what happened in the transfer market. However, the Argentine mega star confirmed that he would remain professional.
Yesterday’s 2019/20 campaign was one of the worst seasons that Lionel Messi experienced with Barcelona. Especially in terms of achievement, where the Catalan giants did not win any titles.
In fact, in the European Champions League, Barcelona were beaten 2-8 to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
Not to mention, there are other internal problems such as conflicts with the club’s sporting director, Eric Abidal and the issue of division in the changing room.
But these two things did not necessarily make Messi feel disappointed, he felt even more disappointed because of Barcelona’s policies under the leadership of new President Josep Maria Bartomeu.
As a result, Messi planned to leave last summer, but Barcelona prevented him by placing a tag of 700 million Euro.
Messi was forced to stay at the Camp Nou, because of course there could not be a club who was willing to spend that much. Obviously, the captain was disappointed by this fact.
Especially seeing his friend Luis Suarez have left Camp Nou to join a rival club, Atletico Madrid.
Talking about this, Messi admitted that he was disappointed with Barcelona. However, the person concerned confirmed that he would remain professional.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I am not capable of playing in any way other than always to win, and give everything on the pitch. It’s been like that throughout my career and it won’t change, ”
“Today my commitment to this jersey and this badge is total, still intact,” Messi told Sport.
Previously, Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo had teased Messi to join the Wanda Metropolitano if he really wanted to reunite with Luis Suarez.
“In life, if you want something, with great desire anything can happen,”
“If Lionel Messi wants to play with Luis Suarez, I will tell him this to come here,” said the president to Cadena Cope.
