Rivaldo, former footballer of Barcelona wonders that captain Lionel Messi will continue to play for the club.
“I can’t imagine how the new management will convince him to step back from his decision to leave the club. He sees that Barca does not have many resources to hold him back,” said Rivaldo to Marca.
“Messi will receive better and larger offers from other clubs. If we add to this the fact that Barcelona will have to cut salaries and Messi already wanted to leave, the situation becomes very difficult.”
“Only if they win the Champions League or La Liga this season if Koeman manages to create a team that will play well, can Messi change his mind.”
“But again: I am afraid this is the last season of Messi in Barcelona. Of course, it’s very sad.”
