Kolkata: Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona have been synonymous. Nobody on earth even imagined the 21-year association would meet its end abruptly. But the divorce is finalised as a few days back, the Catalan club officially announced Messi’s exit due to unforeseen circumstances. And now, the Argentine superstar has broken his silence over the issue. Breaking down, he said, “This year my family and I were convinced we were going to stay here – at home. This is what we wanted more than anything.”
Rumours of his joining PSG are agog but Messi hasn’t spilt the beans on it. Elaborating on his association with the Spanish giants, the Copa American winner said, “The truth is I don’t know what to say. I am leaving with my three Catalan Argentine children,” adding he gave everything for the club since the first day till the last. “I never thought I would have to say goodbye. This is really difficult for me after so many years spent here – my life. I am not ready for this,” he addressed the media at the club as quoted by NDTV.
Well, everything has a deadline and this too shall pass but the emotional string will be tough to break.
