Lionel Messi will prosper away from Barcelona, there is no doubt about it Gaizka Mendieta says, but he does not want him to leave.
Gaizka Mendieta says, adapting to any other league Lionel Messi will have no problem, but it is attractive to the “romantic” concept of great Argentina to remain a one-club man with Barcelona.
Mendieta, who spent a season with Barca in the 2002-03 campaign, told Stats Perform: “Regarding what happened, it is already in the past.”
“We can go into details, but Leo has always shown he is a professional. He has shown it for many years.”
“Messi would get adapted everywhere. He has already shown many times. On the left, On the right, in the middle, being a striker, being an offensive midfielder, and even being a midfielder,” Mendieta said.
