Lionel Messi (PSG): "With Xavi, Barcelona will grow, he is a coach who knows a lot and he's someone who knows the club perfectly." [marca] Image
Messi: "Obviously, if I can contribute and help the club I would love to come back. I've always said that."
Messi: "Koeman arrived at a very difficult time at a club where important players left, but he was capable of bringing a lot of young players. As I said, the easiest thing is always to blame the coach and they know it too because that is their profession."
Messi: "Since Xavi left we have kept in touch. I don't remember what I said to him in that message, I congratulate him on this new step."
Messi: "I have no doubt that Barcelona will come back and climb in the league table."
Messi: "I always want the best for Barcelona. I'm a fan, even though I don't play there now."
Messi: "I was told that I couldn't stay, that they couldn't renew me. I don't know if there was something apart from the financial issue. As I mentioned, I was told that they could't renew me, so I'll stick with that."
Messi: "Laporta's words about a possible return of me and Iniesta? As a player? I always said that one day I would return to Barcelona because it is my home and I will live there."
Messi: "Alves will help the young players on and off the pitch. He's a natural leader."
