Messi apologises to Barcelona fans for a poor season
Barcelona star Lionel Messi has taken to Chinese social network, Weibo, to issue an apology to fans for not having won any trophies this season, whilst also assuring that he’s never had any intentions of leaving the Catalan club.
With the season over and with no silverware to boast, Lionel Messi took to Chinese social network Weibo, in order to offer his apologies for what he acknowledged has been a difficult season for everyone, but remaining convinced that things will be much better next season.
“Truthfully, things haven’t turned out as well as we expected. It’s been a tough year personally and as a group. We all had the opportunity to achieve one of our objectives in the final game and we couldn’t make the most of it.”
“All I can do is to ask the forgiveness of the Barcelona fans and to promise that next season, we’ll get back to the high level of this club and achieve important things.”
As for his own future, Messi assured that he’s never had any intentions of leaving Barcelona.
“With respect to myself, I’m very happy to stay here at my home, as I’ve always said. Maybe this year wasn’t what we’d expected and it wasn’t my best either, but I’m convinced, just like the rest of the group and personally too, that things will be different.”
“It’s the people of Barcelona who decide my future, but my choice is to continue because I still feel the same affection from them as always. Even if that wasn’t the case, I’d still seek a solution, because I always want the best for this club.”
Later in the day and according to local broadcaster TV3, Messi has also now signed his contract extension ahead of linking up with the Argentina squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
