The news of Lionel Messi’s intention to leave Barcelona impacted the entire football world and one of the possibilities that were considered was that of a return to Newell’s, the club that saw him born in football as a child.
There were opinions of all kinds and this Saturday a very important one was added, that of Alberto Fernández, president of the Nation. Fernández went through the television program “Sobredosis de TV” and referred to Messi’s situation.
A confessed fan of Argentinos Juniors, the president first joked about the possibility of him playing in El Bicho: “Messi has to come and play Argentinos Juniors. I asked how we were doing with the reserves, to see if we could bring him.”
But then he made a request to Leo: “Messi give us the pleasure of coming to play at Newell’s. I would also like to see Bielsa in our football. I like good football and Newell’s is a team that historically has a quarry that does it very well. Sorry to the people of Central ”.
“If it does not end in Barcelona, it must end in Newell’s, just like Marcelo Bielsa. Let the Central team not get angry, but Argentines have affection for it because it has a quarry of great players and they have beautiful football,” concluded Alberto Fernández .
