BARCELONA – Argentine striker Leo Messi assures this Wednesday in a statement to the newspaper Sport, who after his attempt to leave the Barça team this summer, assumes his mistakes, and specifies that “if they existed they were only to make a better and stronger FC Barcelona”.
“Now we must concentrate on doing the best possible. If at any time a member was upset with what I said or did, I have no doubt that it was thinking of the best for the club,” says the Barcelona captain.
The ten Barcelona player wants to make a clean sweep after a turbulent summer, in which he sent a burofax to the club to release him from his commitment and showed his differences with the management team led by Josep Maria Bartomeu.
“After so many disagreements, I would like to put an end to it. All the Barça fans must unite and assume that the best is yet to come,” he added.
Messi believes that “this team will give the best” with the sole objective of “achieving the joys that football always brings, especially to these people, our fans, who deserve it so much.”
The idea of the barcelonista is to leave behind the differences: “I particularly assume my errors that, if they existed, were only to make a better and stronger FC Barcelona”, commented the Argentine.
“But that’s it, everything happened and we must concentrate on doing our best and achieving everything we can achieve together, as a team and as a fan: adding passion and enthusiasm will be the only way to achieve the objectives, always united and rowing in the same address, “he insisted.
Remember the ten of Barça that whoever knows him knows that he is not capable of playing anything other than always “to go and win and give everything on the court”.
“It was like this throughout my career and that will not change. Today my commitment to this shirt and this shield is total, it is still intact,” he clarified.
He also spoke about the departure of Luis Suárez to Atlético de Madrid and the comment he made then on ‘Instagram’ when the march was confirmed: “You deserved to be fired as what you are: one of the most important players in the club’s history , achieving important things both as a group and individually. And not to be fired as they did. But the truth is that at this point nothing surprises me. “
In this regard, Messi admitted that he said what he felt “in some moments that were hard” for him. “I understand that there will be those who think I should have shut up or let it pass, but many things hurt me in recent weeks and it was my way of expressing it,” he argued.
