Barcelona is still Lionel Messi’s club, for better or worse

Published on August 17, 2020 by

Sid Lowe joins Dan Thomas on ESPN FC to help make sense of the fallout surrounding Lionel Messi’s future at Barcelona, after the La Liga giants sacked manager Quique Setién. Lowe says the reports saying Messi is willing to leave the Camp Nou if Barca’s board isn’t replaced is to pressure club president Josep Maria Bartomeu and isn’t sure how many clubs in the current market would be willing to acquire the 33-year-old superstar. Plus, Lowe explains how a Barcelona rebuild will be complicated by a lack of finances after the club spent big on Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho in an effort to replace Neymar.
