In an interview given to the newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, Lionel Messi has agreed to react to the social media affair involving Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The Argentine striker said he was surprised by these revelations. “The truth is that it surprised me a little because I was not there and I was traveling. I learned everything when I arrived. The president told us the same thing that he made public, that he said at the press conference. I cannot say more about what happened, whatever the situation. They know the same thing. Everything he said, he said privately to the captains.“The 32-year-old footballer wants to remain very careful on the matter. “The truth is, I find it strange that something like this happens. But they also said there would be evidence. We will have to wait to see if it is true or not. We can’t say much and wait to see what’s going on with all of this. The truth is, it seems to be a strange subject.”
