Lionel Messi has told Barcelona fans he only has the club’s best interests at heart during his dispute with management.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner tried to leave Camp Nou earlier after being disappointed with the club’s management, which is in one of the biggest crises since its inception; after a huge debate over the release clause of his contract, the Argentinean decided to stay.
Indeed, the 33-year-old is ready to put everything behind him, as he expressed it in an interview with the Spanish daily Sport.
“ After so many disagreements, I would like to put an end to it. All Barcelona supporters must unite to think that the best is yet to come, ”he said, before admitting his wrongs.
” I accept my mistakes, and if I did, it was only to make FC Barcelona better and stronger, ” adds the Barça captain.
” I would like to send a message to all the ‘companies’ (Socios, subscribers, in Catalan language, editor’s note) and to all the fans who follow us: if someone could have been bothered by what I did or said, let him know that I have always done it in the best interests of the club.” ” We must add passion to the imagination to achieve our goals; we must stay united and look in the same direction, ” he added.
