The tremendous dard of Messi against the directive of Josep Maria Bartomeu put to the Barça in the focus again. An unnecessary distraction to fault of hours to initiate LaLiga
That Bartomeu has been one of the worst presidents of the history of the Barça is something that think a lot of fans culés, and have his reasons. That Leo Messi is the best footballer of the history of the club is something that anybody would be able to doubt neither for one moment. This, however, does not give authority to the Argentinian to do what want to, and still less being the first captain of the team culé.
'The Flea', unfortunately, lives anchored in the past from the month of August. The humiliation suffered against the Bayern Munich in Lisbon (in which he had his small part of fault, like the rest of mates) has left a wound that still does not have cicatrizado. It tried to do the cases of the Barça remembering to Bartomeu a promise that purportedly the president had done him, and that has not fulfilled.
With all the downpour that was falling him on, 'Barto' thought that it could not leave leave to the '10'. Even less free, without earning neither a euro by the one who was the most valuable footballer of the planet until does not do a lot. Therefore it urged to the rosarino to do something that to many seemed them a madness, but that in other contexts would not be so descabellado: fulfil his agreement. Neither more neither less, remain until June of 2021 as it signed in his day.
After a small circus mediático and a threaten of courts that never progressed, Messi announced publicly that it remained in the Barcelona and that did it, besides, of form forced. They did not be missing the continuous criticisms to the management of the directive of Bartomeu, and after some days all think that the '10' already had desfogado. Borrón And new account, to think in the following season and satisfy of titles to the club and to his fans to go in style.
This Friday, nevertheless, Messi has showed that follows giving him turns to the subject. That neither much less it is centred to 100% in the only in that it would have to think: football, football and more football. With the party against the Villarreal increasingly near, this same Sunday, Messi has not doubted in shooting again against the directive. This time the exit of Luis Suárez has served him like argument (or excuse) to lengthen a rabieta that is totally barren.
What expected to achieve Messi with this new stick? Surely at all. It has written in hot with the aim of desfogarse again, and has not thought that with this no only damages the image of the directive of Bartomeu, but also his own and the one of the club. The FC Barcelona goes back to be the main focus mediático of the international football and, again, is not by his successes but by his internal tensions.
It was not the moment, Leo
Being as it is the first captain of the team, perhaps Messi had to have thought that this controversy could distract to his mates of the party against the Villarreal. That this Friday, when it would have to be speaking only of the première of the season 2020-21, was not the best moment to go back to make public his grudges and thoughts darker.
That anybody confuse : Messi safe that has reason in what it says, and spare reasons to be angered. But the forms and the times are not the suitable. It has arrived the hour to make a fresh start, as long as it want to go back to heave the flight. This type of controversies are not the best for the Barça, and neither what deserve his fans. And anybody says that it look to another side... But it prioritise what in this moment, just now, is the most important: go back to win. Already there will be time, more advance, to sew old wounds with stitchs.
