Lionel Messi post-game interview after Barcelona loss to Osasuna

Barcelona team erratic and weak…: Lionel Messi

Last night, Real Madrid were crowned champions of LaLiga. Whilst over in Barcelona, the Catalans lost to a 10-man Osasuna. 🙆‍♂️

Messi turned evil Super Saiyan and unleashed his anger in a rare post-match interview.

‘This game represents the entire year. We have been an erratic and weak team,’

‘Madrid did its part by winning all its matches, which is impressive, but we also helped them to win this league. We have to be critical of how we have played, starting with the players, and the rest of the club.

‘We have lost because of our mistakes and not because of Madrid’s successes, as many say.

‘The feeling on this team is that it tries, but that it cannot get the job done. Today in the first half they were better than we were and it seems we have to fall behind to react like we tried to do in the second half.’

Former Barca President: Leo Messi Will Leave Barcelona


The game summed up Barcelona’s campaign. They had a lot of the possession and created chances they could not finish. Their defence has been shaky, their midfield has been below average, and their attack is led by Luis Suarez – who doesn’t look like he can actually run anymore.

They signed Antoine Griezmann at the beginning of the season but he has struggled to fit in. Mainly because he has been played out of position on the flanks. He is more effective in the centre behind the main striker. A position that is owned by Messi.

Champions League 

My five-year-old Messi-stan son: ‘Barcelona are still in the champions league, at least they have a chance to win a trophy right Dad?’

Well, Messi isn’t so confident.

‘Roma, Liverpool… the fans are running out of patience because we’re not giving them anything. If we want to fight for the Champions League, a lot has to change. Like this, we will lose to Napoli.’ Super Saiyan Messi continued.

Barca are tied with Napoli 1-1 in their last-16 clash. Last year they crashed out the competition to eventual winners Liverpool after leading 3-0 in the first leg. The year before that, they got choked slammed off the top rope by Roma after leading 4-1 on aggregate going into the away game. 

I’m not a betting man but I wouldn’t put my money on Barcelona making waves in this year’s competition either.

The Barcelona board should be worried. Messi hasn’t signed a new contract and has now come out publicly with his concerns about the team. He may want to stay at the club till he retires but Barcelona may be forcing his hand in considering the opposite.

Leo Messi Doesn't Want To Sign New Contract

Former Barca President: Leo Messi Will Leave Barcelona

Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta concerned that Lionel Messi could quit the Nou Camp due to beef in the boardroom. Leo Messi has less than 12 months remaining on his Barcelona contract. He hasn’t been impressed with how the team has been performing and he refusing to sign a new deal.

Joan Laporta who was Barcelona president between 2003 and 2010 thinks the guy who is currently in the position, Josep Maria Bartomeu, is whack.

“I want him (Messi) to stay in 2021 but I am scared that a bad decision of this board could result in an irreversible decision,” Laporta said at an event at Sant Joan de Deu hospital on Wednesday.

“It’s not BarcaGate, it’s BartoGate, I am worried about how the status of the club is being put at risk.”

Leo Messi is said to hate Bartomeu guts. Okay, I may be exaggerating. But Messi is trying to politic Bartomeu out of his position as the Ramaphosa of Barcelona. The next upcoming Barcelona presidential election will take place in the summer (our winter) of 2021 – usually a date in June.

Messi is using his leverage, as the best player on the planet, to get this guy out of Barcelona. Messi’s current contract expires in June 2021. He is probably going to wait it out till the end of next season before he makes a decision. He may be playing a game of chicken or he may be dead ass serious. Barcelona right now is a middle table team without Messi. They cannot afford to left him, and worse for FREE!🙆🏾‍♂️
