Lionel Messi has made blunt comments on Barcelona presidential election as the Argentian attacker is not ready to commit to any aspirant.
Messi is not disappointed with the resignation of Josep Maria Bartomeu is no longer in power at Barcelona.
“I had been telling Bartomeu that I wanted to leave for months,” Messi told La Sexta. “He made me promises that weren’t kept later. He deceived me a lot of times.”
The No.10 was questioned on his future at the club, but he insists that he doesn’t know yet what the future holds beyond the 2020/21 campaign.
“I don’t know where I’ll be next year,” Messi said. “Although I can negotiate with clubs from January 1, I won’t do it until the end of the season.”
During the conversation, the captain expressed his frustration with the idea some have of him being in control at Barcelona, and that he decides what happens within the team. For that reason, he was reluctant to show support for any presidential candidate.
“I don’t want to position myself with any candidate,” Messi said, “especially because of those who say that I manage the club. If, on top of everything, I say that I prefer one of them…
“None of the candidates have contacted me. Whoever wins will have a tough job and they’ll have to do things intelligently.”Barcelona will welcome Eibar to Camp Nou on Tuesday for in their next La Liga clash.
