Leo Messi does not forget Barcelona. Something logical, considering that it is the club of his life and in which he played for more than 20 years. Another thing is that circumstances have taken him out of there and now he plays for PSG. In an interview with the newspaper Sport, the Argentinean reviews the last three intense months of his life and reflects on the future: «What is certain is that we are going to live again Barcelona and that our life will be there. It’s what my wife wants and what I want. I don’t know if when my contract with PSG ends I will return to Barça. I always said that I would love to be able to help the club in what can be useful and can add and help the club to be well. I would love to be a technical secretary at some point. I don’t know if it will be at Barcelona or not. Or if it will be otherwise. If there is the possibility, I would like to contribute again in what I can because it is the club that I love and I would love for it to continue to be well, to continue growing and to continue being one of the best in the world.
The controversial departure of the Argentine from Barça continues to kick in, but until now the version of Messi, who is annoyed with Laporta, had not been heard: «I did everything possible to stay. I was asked to cut my salary by fifty percent and I did it without any problem. We were in a position to help the club more. The desire and desire of me, and of my family, was to stay in Barcelona, and nobody asked me to play for free, but at the same time it seems to me that the words that the president said are out of place. They hurt me because I think he doesn’t need to say that, it’s like getting the ball off you and not assuming its consequences, or taking charge of things. This makes people think or generates a type of doubt that I think I do not deserve ”.
Messi confesses that he has not spoken with Laporta And he leaves another message with clouds as to whether he was disappointed with a colleague: «No, not disappointed, because I know them all by heart. Those who expected to tuck me in, did. It took them by surprise as it did me. They were by my side and supporting me at all times »
From his new life in Paris, where he has gone with the aim of winning the Champions League, he reveals that at the beginning he went through delicate moments: «The bad moments were at the beginning. When it was all of a sudden, to come here, to spend a lot of time in the hotel. We were a month and a half. And it is not easy to live with the boys in a hotel room. We were in the center and that made the traffic unbearable. It took us an hour for school and for training. The kids couldn’t take it anymore in the hotel. At the same time we tried to enjoy the experience, the city and get to know everything a little until we came home and that made everything better »
The change to a house has helped him as much as finding a dressing room that speaks a lot of Spanish and complains about the international stoppages that mean that he cannot have enough time to finish adapting to a team in which he shares stardom with Neymar and Mbappé: «I have had a long-standing relationship with Ney, we kept talking despite not playing together. With Kylian at the beginning it was weird because we didn’t know if he was staying or leaving. He was with his things. Luckily we are getting to know each other more, both on and off the field. We get along spectacular. There is a good and healthy group in the dressing room.
A new trident to be able to repeat the successes of the past: «Is MSN or MNM? It can not be bought. They are different. Luis is another type of 9, with different characteristics from Mbappé. Kylian was playing the last few years outside. This one, and I don’t remember if the previous one too, is playing more than nine. Luis is more of a scorer than before, as a forward center point. Kylian is more about coming to play, being powerful and killing you with spaces. The truth is that it changes the way of being of the center forward. It is difficult to compare. I was lucky to be in that Barça trident, which was wonderful and I hope that with this we can achieve the same as with the previous one ».
