The Argentine player Leo Messi has assured that “he was not” prepared “to say goodbye to FC Barcelona and that he was” convinced “that he was going to continue at his” home “, in addition to admitting that he would have liked to leave listening to” one last ovation “from the Camp Nou.
“I don’t know if I’m going to be able to speak. I’m blocked. This is very difficult for me, after all these years. I was not prepared. Last year, when all the mess was formed, I was prepared, but not this year. I was convinced that I was going to continue at my house, “declared a Messi who couldn’t help crying from the first minute.
In this sense, he stressed that both he and his family always superimposed “well-being” over money. “We wanted to be at our house, in Barcelona. Today I have to say goodbye to this. I have been here all my life, I arrived very young. After 21 years, I am leaving with my wife, with three Catalan-Argentines. I cannot be more proud After a few years away, we will return to our house, “he said.
“I want to thank all my colleagues for their help. I always tried to handle myself with humility, with respect, I hope that is what remains of me, in addition to how lucky I was to be here. I went through many beautiful things, also bad, but that made me grow up and be the person I am today. I gave my all for this club and this shirt. I appreciate the affection of the people, I would have liked to say goodbye in this way, I would have liked to say goodbye with the people on the field, to have heard one last ovation . I’m leaving this club without seeing it, “he said. “I hope I can come back at some point, contribute something so that this club continues to be the best in the world,” he said.
Last Thursday, FC Barcelona announced that the Argentine would no longer be linked to the club due to “economic and structural obstacles, regulations of the Spanish LaLiga”.
Barça explained that it had reached an agreement with Messi, but that these obstacles make the player leave the club of his entire life, where he made his debut in the first team in 2004 although he had played long before after his arrival at the club in the lower categories .
