Why Messi Decided Not to Leave Barcelona Again
One of the most loved football players and Barcelona FC talisman, Lionel Messi, has finally revealed the real reason of deciding to leave Barcelona, saying it was in the club’s best interest.
About a few weeks ago, the Argentina superstar announces his decision to leave the Spanish-based club earlier this summer after becoming disillusioned with their direction but went ahead to make a u-turn due to a clause in his contract.
In his first interview since he changed his mind about leaving Barcelona, Messi appealed to fans and also accepted responsibility for his mistakes.
“After so many disagreements, I would like to bring an end to everything and put aside any differences.
“I take responsibility for my mistakes and, if there were any, they were only to make Barcelona better and stronger.
“I wanted to send a message to all the socios and fans that follow us. If at any moment, any of them were annoyed by something that I said or did, let there be no doubts that anything I did was always with the club’s best interests in mind.”
“If any fans were annoyed by something that I said or did, let there be no doubt that anything I did was always with the club’s best interests in mind,” Messi told Diario Sport on Tuesday.
