“Messi is the best player in the history of Barca and the world of football. The door for Messi to return to Barca is always open, but he still has a contract with PSG“, coach Xavi Hernandez confirmed before the El Clasico match between Barca and Real Madrid at 3 a.m. tomorrow, March 21.
“As long as I am Barca coach, the door for Messi is always open. Messi can come and watch Barca practice or talk to me. Messi used to do invaluable things for Barca. Obviously he’s excellent, but I know he has a two-year contract with PSG“.
Lionel Messi is the greatest legend in Barca history. 17 years playing for the Catalan team, Messi played 778 matches, scored 672 goals, had 305 assists. He won 35 titles, most notably 10 LaLiga championships, 4 Champions League titles, 11 times crowned Spanish Super Cup and European Super Cup.
Messi moved to Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season on a free transfer, because Barca could not sign a new contract with the Argentine superstar because of the salary ceiling in LaLiga. In the shirt of the French club, Messi scored 7 goals, had 10 assists, but in the framework of Ligue 1 alone, the 34-year-old player only had 2 goals.
Messi and his teammates have just been eliminated in the 1/8 round Champions League before Real Madrid. As revealed by veteran defender Dani Alves, Messi is not happy at PSG. Recently, the Argentine striker was booed by his home fans during the touchdown phase in the 3-0 victory over Bordeaux.
Returning to the El Clasico match, coach Xavi affirmed that Barca needed to prove their strength and competitiveness in the competition with Real. Barca has had more than 1,000 days without winning Real, this is the motivation for Xavi’s teachers and students to show change.
“Barca won Villarreal, they are also a big team. Napoli so what? Chief Atlético Madrid Also, they are big clubs. I won many games at the Bernabeu as a player, but playing in El Clasico is always difficult. Meeting Real next match is an opportunity for Barca to verify their strength. We have to show competitiveness“, concluded Xavi.
