The new coach of FC Barcelona, Ronald Koeman, wants to make it very clear that the differences that Leo Messi has with the club are strictly with the board and not with the sports project that he is now leading.
A few hours before his second preseason game in which Leo scored a superb double, Koeman made some statements on his country’s television making it clear that the Argentine’s problem is directly with President Bartomeu.
