Barcelona Fans took a sigh of relief when Lionel Messi announces that he will stay in the club.
Messi left everyone in shock when he announced that he wanted to leave his lifelong club last month.
“If he can stay for one more year and we can make the most of him and go see him play at the stadium, for me it’s very positive,” said FC Barcelona fan Oriol Vives, 31.
According to Messi, “I wasn’t happy and wanted to leave. I haven’t been allowed this in any way and I will stay at the club so as not to get into a legal dispute”.
“The management of the club led by president Josep Maria Bartomeu is a disaster,” he was quoted as saying on Goal.com.
“The whole situation has been very unpleasant. I think that the majority of the fault is the management’s.”, said Jordi Marti, 43.
According to Spanish media, Messi is staying against his will because the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu broke his word to let him leave.
