🎙[SPORT] | Josep Maria Bartomeu: “Koeman has lost Leo Messi. As president, I didn’t want Messi to go and did everything possible so that he would not leave the club.”
Bartomeu: “I thought it was good for Barça and for him that he stayed with us. This summer, they let him go and that to me seems a bad decision. Playing without Leo Messi means there have to be a lot of changes.”
Bartomeu: “He came to the club at a delicate time, after a painful defeat and accepted the challenge of taking on the club in this situation.”
🎙[SPORT] | Bartomeu: “it’s been a year since we resigned as the board, and although we would like to be more anonymous we made a statement because things have appeared referring to us that don’t seem accurate.”
Bartomeu: “explain to the socios that the situation is not as bad as it seems within the club because it’s a situation provoked by Covid.”
Bartomeu: “The effect of Covid was 225 million euros, for the loss of income, minus the savings made on bills.”
🎙 [De Telegraaf] | Rafael van der Vaart: "Frenkie de Jong is like Kimmich, but better."
Van der Vaart: "Frenkie should be judged less as a scorer or a number 10 because he is not. The discussion is over. He should be compared to Bayern's Kimmich, but he is still better."
Van der Vaart: "Frenkie has a hard time against small opponents because they don't leave spaces. That is why he is not at his best at sixteen meters away from the goal, and unfortunately he will never become a true scoring midfielder, I am afraid."
🎙️[RAC1] | Joan Laporta: “I did hope that at the last minute Messi said he would play for free. I would have liked that and he would have convinced me. I understand that the League would have accepted it. But we cannot ask a player of his level.”
🎙️| Joan Laporta: “I thought so because I know him, he went up with me to the first team, I helped his family a lot. He knew that when we would recover the economy he would be reciprocated. We have no debt. Maybe there are some concepts left but we will pay for it as agreed.”
🎙️| Joan Laporta: "Everything indicates that he already had the offer from PSG. Everyone knew that he had a very powerful offer. We knew that from Messi they had a very good offer."
🎙 [@SeFutbol] | Pablo Gavi: "For me it is a pride to be the youngest player in the history of the team [Spain] and to represent my country and, above all, with victory."
@SeFutbol Gavi: "It was a dream for me to hear the anthem, I have always dreamed of being able to reach the senior national team and being able to come out as a starter I didn't expect, but I was attentive to anything."
@SeFutbol Gavi: "I was at La Masía, at the residence, and my friends there told me that I had been called up. I found out through them. Until I saw the picture here, in the video, I didn't believe it."
