Lionel Messi looks back in an extensive interview on a hectic period, in which he was about to close the door of the Camp Nou behind him. The Argentinian was no longer interested in continuing to play football under the current management and expressed his dissatisfaction in various ways. He indicated that he wanted to leave, but eventually got back to that. Looking back over the past few months, Messi says he has done everything with the best of intentions for the club. “All Barça fans must be united and count on the best to come.”
33-year-old Messi told Barcelona that he wanted to activate the clause in his contract, which would allow him to leave on a free transfer. The club management indicated that it was too late for that and that he would only go out for a transfer sum. Since his lump sum payment in his contract is set at seven hundred million euros, a transfer was not possible. Just before the start of the new season the word got out: Messi will stay anyway, much to the relief of the new trainer Ronald Koeman.
In an interview with Sport tells Messi that he never intended to insult the supporters. In his own words, he did everything with the best of intentions for the club. “I take responsibility for my mistakes. If they existed, they were only meant to create a better and stronger Barcelona, ”explains Messi. “I wanted to convey a message to all socio’s and the fans.”
Barcelona started the new LaLiga season last weekend with a 4-0 win over Villarreal at the Camp Nou. Messi accounted for one of the goals from eleven meters. With the new season underway, Messi wants to put all the troubles behind and focus on the goals set for Koeman’s team. “After so much disagreement, I would like to end that. We must unite all the people of Barcelona and believe that the best is yet to come. ”
Messi calls for peace in Barcelona. “We will only be able to achieve our goals if we show shared passion, enthusiasm and motivation. We have to be united and have everyone on the same page, ”said Messi, who lashed out at club management last week when he said goodbye to his friend Luis Suárez, who has been sold to Atlético Madrid in an emotional post on Instagram. Barcelona will continue the Spanish league on Thursday with an away match against Celta de Vigo.
