Barcelona. The Barcelona player Lionel Messi said he was tired of always being the problem of everything in the Barça team, yesterday upon his arrival in Barcelona after having played two games with the Argentine team in the South American qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Rosario star was questioned by the press about whether he was bothered by the recent statements of the uncle and former representative of his teammate Antoine Griezmann, who pointed to Messi as the culprit for his nephew’s poor performance, taking advantage of the break due to the international duels of the teams national.
Upon arriving at the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat airport, the Argentine forward showed his indignation at the comments.
I’m tired of always being the problem of everything at the club. I arrive after 15 hours of flight and I find myself there with one of the Treasury, this is crazy, said Messi when he stepped on Barcelona soil.
The attacker, considered the best footballer in the world today, responded with these statements to the words of Griezmann’s uncle, Emmanuel Lopes, a week ago, who spoke like this on a French radio: He was convinced that Antoine was not going to succeed in six months in Barcelona, but I didn’t expect it to last a year. Also, with Messi there … I know what’s going on inside, it’s not easy.
On the other hand, the Argentine striker left the private flights terminal at Barcelona airport with more delay than normal when he was claimed by the customs services.
