Just before the official confirmation of Messi handing over his request to terminate his contract at the club, the ex-Barcelona president talked about the current situation on Twitter.
Joan Laporta spoke against the club’s board, and especially the alleged president Josep Maria Bartomeu. Messi has been angry on the board and on Bartomeu especially which has made him ask to terminate his contract for the first time in the history of his long-term stay at the club.
Laporta was totally angry about the recent events, including how Luis Suarez has been asked to leave. He was open about the future of Leo Messi and how he has been treated by the board under Bartomeu.
In his tweet, he wrote: “The image of how the club acts is bad and jeopardizes it. It makes me suspect they want to sell Messi, which would be a historic error.”
Laporta has called the board “incompetents“.
On Saurez, he said: “They told Suarez they didn’t count on him by phone? That’s a cowardly act from the president and a lack of respect for the player.”
The current situation at the club is totally heated up and the fans have fired up against Bartomeu. Do you think Messi will truly end up leaving the club? Tell us in the comments down below…
