Spanish football evening headlines for April 16.
Barca confident on Messi
Laporta added: “I will do everything possible with this club to ensure he stays. That is what we are doing. Messi is motivated. He is an incredible person and I am convinced that he will want to continue here.”
Koeman frustrated by questions
Koeman told reporters on Friday, in quotes that have been carried by Marca: “We have improved many things. I never think about my future if I win or lose a game.
“It’s a little bit strange that I need to answer questions like this because we had a run of 19 games without losing. We are losing one match and I need to talk about my future?
“Maybe I need to accept this. I have one more year of contract. I know it’s a big pressure and I can handle that but sometimes it’s a little bit strange.
Message from Ramos
Ramos wrote: “Corona who? We’ll be back. Don’t let anybody doubt that.”
He is the second player to test positive for the virus at the club in recent times following his central defensive partner Raphael Varane.
