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.’
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.
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.
