Frenkie de Jong has confirmed that despite a recent request to leave the club, Lionel Messi is still in Barcelona’s WhatsApp group chat.
De Jong states that, as far as he is informed, Messi stays a member of the group, although he was not part of the start of the 2020-21 practice.
“I hope Messi is still there when I get back, but that’s not something that’s up to me. He’s still in the group chat,” he said to .
“I’m not someone to speak with him about it, I’m sure he’s got a lot of people around him doing that these days.”
