Barcelona Delighted the forward is set to stay
Former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart believes Barcelona fans and members should be bowing at Lionel Messi’s feet.
The club captain has been trying to force his way out of the club for two weeks, but on Friday he confirmed that he is now set to stay on at the Camp Nou for 2020/21.
“I don’t care what he said in the statement,” Gaspart told Radio MARCA.
“I don’t care – what’s important to me is that he’s staying.
“He’s put himself at the same level as [Alfredo] Di Stefano at Real Madrid.
“How problems start isn’t important.
“What is important is how they’re solved and I’m delighted that he doesn’t want to fight with the club.
“The club consists of 160,000 people and they have to be grateful for what he’s done.”
