    Messi has got maturity to decide for his life.However,nobody at camp nou wants Messi to leave his team after spending most of carriere and life in Barcelona,he is most loved by his fans.
    and his team-mates.
    I agree with Pep who says “Messi will never better than Barcelona.3 years more at Barca,is like 3 days.He would have better at say,if retired. Unless ,he leaves for money. To me leaving Barca with dignity will be appreciated all over the world with that dicency is rarely remarkable with lots of players.
    To stay,it shows as man of character.
    And character is most important things,we would like Messi to show the world,with his patience and sacrifice
    he wins everything.

      I’ve respected Messi all my life seeing him leaving Barca will break my heart alot

    2. Winstone Kawala says:

      You are right about Messi. I think that will make him a great player and a legend when he retires at Barca. It will show to the world that there players who do not play because of money, but rather passion.
