On top of being one of, if not the best player in the club’s history, Lionel Messi is one of Barcelona’s favourite sons. The Argentine was adored by many club officials, and especially so by the supporters of the Blaugrana.
As well as being a Barca man, Messi is also a family man. He has his wife Antonella Roccuzzo, and sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro, as well as father Jorge and mother Celia. Messi also has three siblings: Maria, Rodrigo and Matias, and it is the latter that is making waves in the media.
Messi’s nephew, Tomi, was streaming on Twitch with Matias among others, and the group started talking about Barcelona. Matias proceeded to go on a tirade about the club, in which he particularly had a go at president Joan Laporta.
“I have a SPORT clipping stuck in my house that says: ‘Messi should return to Barcelona’; and I subtitled it ‘hahahaha, we are not going back to Barcelona, and if we do, we are going to do a good cleaning. Among them, kick out Joan Laporta’
“People (in Barcelona) did not support him. People should have gone out to do a march or something, let Laporta leave and Messi stay. The Spanish are traitors. I tell you because I want it to come out of our guts and not listen to things that are not true.”
Messi played for Barcelona for 21 years, and Matias believes that the Blaugrana wouldn’t be as popular as they are now without his brother’s influence.
“(I think) Barcelona became known thanks to Messi. Nobody knew about them before. Whoever’s had the chance to go to Barcelona and see the museum, you can see that the museum is Messi.”
We are left to wonder what Matias’ superstar brother has to say about his siblings’ comments, but Barcelona and Laporta are likely to be furious with his words.
14 years before Messi was even born it was Johann Cruyff that put Barcelona on the map of world futbol, in 1973, including a 1st Division Spanish Title. His managerial career at Barça solidified the Azul y Grana as a European and world force. By the time Messi came around, Barcelona was one of the greatest clubs in the world and provided a platform for Messi to display his extraordinary talents. I’m sure Messi would agree that all of his current glory started with the greatness and impact of Johann Cruyff moving to Barcelona in 1973.
Correct and well said this is utter bullshit coming from the mouth of his brother and not messi himself,judging by the behaviour of Argentina as a whole at the most recent world cup its really rich him spurting out about Spanish being traitors ect ectlmao,do us all a favour matias and just shut your mouth you clown,as I said earlier if this had came from messi then it would have been important but coming from a nobody like you matias it’s not important at all,and in fact you should be embarrassed and laughed at you idiot,ever hear the term no player is bigger than the club yea pal you should seriously look into that before spurting out shit,or better still ask Cristiano Ronaldo about it,we all know how his career ended lol 😂🤣
Ps. Megamouth dickhead matias has had to come out and apologise 🤫🤭🤥 for being an arshole shock shock horror 😱 who would have thought it.
