“It is not good advice for @leomessi to leave Barcelona bitter and offended. It is impossible to establish a healthy relationship with a person who left a previous relationship bitter and offended. This is my candid advice to Lionel Messi. History is our boss.”
Lionel Messi is currently engaged in a bitter battle with FC Barcelona after he told them he wants to leave.
The Argentine is already on strike and not showing up for training as a way of protesting against the club.
Messi said he is a free agent and can leave the club now but Barcelona maintains that the clause expired in June and said he should either see out his current contract until June 2021, or leave by paying the buyout clause of 700 million euros ($837m).
Yesterday Messi’s father Jorge flew from Argentina to Barcelona, to sit down with the club president, Josep Bartomeu and discuss Messi’s future or lack of it at the club.
Asked by journalists about his son’s future with Barcelona, Jorge Messi described it as difficult.
The general feeling is that there in tension between FC Barcelona and Messi who not only stopped coming to training but has cut all communications with the club, leaving his father to speak on his behalf.
