Lionel Messi broke the silence and, in dialogue with The sixth, spoke of everything: Barcelona, its present, what it experienced in recent times and, most importantly, its future.
The best phrases of the interview with Messi:
On his passion for Barcelona: “I feel everything about the Barcelona shirt, this team is my life. I have been since I was thirteen, I have been living here longer than in my own country. I learned everything here and the club formed me as a player and person. I always left everything for Barcelona and I have a love relationship because it is everything I have experienced since I was here. “
His and the club’s present: “I’m fine today. It’s true that I had a very bad time in the summer and before also because of how the season ended. Now I’m looking forward to fighting for the things we’re going to play, I’m excited but I know that the club is going through a difficult time at all levels. The institution is in a very bad financial position and it will be difficult to get back to where it was before. The fall with Bayern was hard because of how it was lost and because of the year we had been having . We could lose but not that way. “
The Burofax: “The burofax would send it again. I told the president for the last six months that I was leaving and wanted to go, to help me but he always said no. So it was a way of saying ‘I want to go seriously “I knew that this year was going to be a transition year, with new people and I wanted to continue fighting to get more titles, to fight Champions and LaLiga again. I felt it was time to go and I wanted to do it well. The president began to filter things to make me look bad. It seemed crazy to me what they did with Luis because of how everything was resolved, because of how he left and because he left for free and they gave him to a team that was going to fight for the same goals as us. ” .
Maradona’s death and his funeral: “When Maradona died I was at my house and a message came from my dad, I turned on the TV and found out everything. It was crazy, I couldn’t believe it because, although we all knew that Diego it was not right, no one supposed what happened was going to happen. No one can believe that Maradona has died and is no more. It was normal what the funeral was for what Diego was and what he did for Argentina, what the Argentine for him. The truth is that he deserved everything. “
Pep Guardiola, Luis Enrique and Koeman: “With Guardiola we talked about his present and mine, but we did not mention any reunion. He is the best because of how he prepared you to attack and defend. I thought that with Pep I had learned everything, but Luis Enrique I learned even more. With Koeman he was given a seriousness and an idea of what is intended for his team and the club. I think yes, it was a great success and he is doing things well. Although it is difficult because there are many people new, little by little the team grows. “
