They betrayed Messi in Barcelona. And he looked for a cure in Paris.

 

Piquet and Messi are both from the 1987 generation at La Massia Academy, having played with each other since the Argentine's arrival in Barcelona, and have been in the first team since 2008 until 2021.


How do they deal with Messi?


Spanish newspaper Il Pais reported Tuesday that Lionel Messi was betrayed by his friend Gerard Piquet and President Joan Laporta before announcing his departure from the club, and tried to seek a cure in Paris.


Piquet and Messi are both from the 1987 generation at La Massia Academy, having played with each other since the Argentine's arrival in Barcelona, and have been in the first team since 2008 until 2021.


  • "Inside the club, Messi felt betrayed," she continued. He found out that his friend Gerard Piquet had advised Laporta not to extend the contract of the club legend. (Without Leo, it would be much easier to resolve the issue of clean financial play), which surprised the number ten player, who accepted the Paris offer solely to cure his financial problems. 



  • Messi has not shown up at the expected level with Paris so far, the paper explains: He's entered a new challenge into his life, a dressing room he didn't even count on. Missy doesn't talk, he sits in his place and keeps quiet and looks at everything.


  • Barcelona ended its relationship with the greatest player in its history last August, with Laporta saying that the Hispanic League salary cap did not allow the historic scorer to continue, calling for him to leave Barcelona 20 years after joining the club's renowned academy "La Masia."


How do you deal with Messi's decision?

The sports director of the Barcelona team, Matteo Alemany, admitted that the decision of the Argentine star, Leo Messi, to leave El Camp No, had hurt the club economically, according to Spanish newspaper .


During a conversation with sports business students at the London School of Economics, Alemany said that Messi's decision came as no surprise: "Unfortunately, Leo Messi's departure was no surprise.


 It was a moment of truth, and the only way he could have stayed was for Barcelona to commit to something we didn't want to do, and we decided that the club was above anyone. As a result, we suffered significant commercial losses."



The only solution for Messi :-


Alemany explained the only option available to ensure that Messi remained in Barcelona was to approve the deal made by the CVC investment fund with the Spanish League Association, which he rejected with Real Madrid.

Barcelona's football manager explained that Barcelona's failure to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season would be a "disaster."




  • "I'm not thinking about disqualification," he adds. Chaffee's (team coach) has been doing really well in his first few months, and we're very happy with the work he's done so far."

  • Barcelona is strongly vying to occupy one of the top four positions in the Spanish League to ensure participation in the "European Champions," which is now in the European League and, if it wins the title, is enough to take part in next season's Most Outstanding Continental Championship.

  • Regarding the future, Alemanni did not want to offer any assurances that the club could sign with the Norwegian star, Erling Halland, saying that many hopes remained for players coming through the club's youth academy.



""All I can say is that Barcelona is still one of the best clubs in the world," he added, "and our goal is to always have the most talented players." As a competitive team, we're working on that."


"Hiring a footballer is not the same as hiring any other type of employee," he continues.There are a lot of things to consider like clean financial play rules, so it's very complicated."
