Main reasons Messi wants to leave Barcelona, eyes Premiership
Facts are beginning to emerge on why FC Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has insisted on leaving the club.
Recall that the player has been having issues with his club since they lost scandalously to Bayern Munich in the 2020 UCL. He, on Tuesday shocked the sporting world with a transfer request to the club of his dream, FC Barcelona.
One of the reasons, it was gathered was the failure to bring back Neymar, the Brazilian, who left in 2017 for French champions PSG.
Messi has a bond that goes beyond the field of play with Neymar. With Suarez, the trio formed the fearsome MSN trident that won the treble in 2015.
The Argentine considers Neymar his heir apparent and as he ages wanted an opportunity to pass on the torch. But Messi felt betrayed the Club administrators didn’t push hard enough. Instead they bought Griezmman, who he didn’t quite jell with.
Messi has also grown increasingly tired of recent signings by Barcelona, many of whom he considered below par. From Dembele to Griezmman, Martin Braithwaite and Paulinho, Messi believes Barcelona were not fortifying well. That left him with too many workloads on the field of play.
New coach Ronald Koeman reportedly called Messi’s buddy Luis Suarez on Monday to tell him he was not wanted for next season. Suarez, who hinted he does not mind a substitute role, was shocked? Messi was infuriated. He believes that was not the way to treat the third highest goal scorer in the history of the team. His decision to leave is partly to fight for Suarez.
Messi is completely pissed off that the board headed by Josep Barmoteu has been portraying the players in a bad light. During the coronavirus pandemic, the players accepted a 70 percent pay cut but the board alleged they were reluctant, which the players considered in bad taste.
