Messi Makes Scathing Comments on Barcelona
Lionel Messi has continued to send signals that he was not comfortable with the way things were being managed at the Camp Nou.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner attempted to leave the Camp Nou earlier this summer after becoming disillusioned with their direction the club was heading, but told Barcelona fans he only had the club’s best interests at heart during his bitter back and forth struggle to quit the club.
He told Spanish publication SPORT recently that “After so many disagreements, I would like to put an end to it.
Nigerian Sketch reports that Messi’s latest attack came last week after the departure of close friend Luis Suarez was confirmed.
A tearful Suarez broke down at his farewell press conference and Messi took to Instagram to criticise the club.
He said the situation left him “hurt” and he could not let it pass without saying his peace.
He was asked why he had to come so hard on the club regarding Suarez’s departure.
“Instagram post about Suarez? I understand that there will be those who think I should have let it pass, as I’ve done with so many other subjects, but many things hurt me in recent weeks and it was my way of expressing it.
“I always play to win and I always give everything on the pitch. Those who know me, know that I can’t let go of that habit. It has been like that throughout my entire career and that’s not going to change.”
