Luis Figo was protagonist recently, thanks to an interview that made him in the Marca Sport Weekend this weekend. Between his statements to the questions of the journalists, the Portuguese no calló his opinion on the subject of the controversy regarding the decision of Lionel Messi to abandon the FC Barcelona during the past summer.

"The of Messi and his attempt to go of the Barcelona lived it this summer like all the lovers of the football: expectante and surprised. He will have his reasons and his reasons to take this decision, do not know what happened previously. All the clubs want to have to a player like Messi but afterwards depends on factors like the financial moment of the club, the costs that his wage involves for the club, the will of the player", went the words of the exfutbolista.

Incidentally, Figo was incisive with the previous directors and futures of the FC Barcelona, leaving them his concrete opinion regarding the situation that lived with Messi recently. Apropos this, the ex Inter of Milan comment: "In general in the life if you do not want to be in a place at the end there is not at all that it can retain you"

The indirect of Figo

The last part of the statements of Figo in the Mark Sport Weekend seem to be as a species of indirect on his case, when it abandoned the Barcelona to land in the Real Madrid in the year 2000. Clearly his words do reference to that he did not want to be still in the Barcelona and therefore it finished committing an act that is seen by many like the greater betrayal in the history of the football.

To such level arrived the wish of Figo to go of the Barcelona that it was he same the one who credited his clause of recisción, which had a value of 10 million pesestas, that is to say, of 60 million euros. The Portuguese sees some similarity between his case and the one of the controversy around the wish of Messi to leave the past summer.
