Koeman responds to major Messi interview: “Free to decide what he wants”

FC Barcelona Ronald Koeman doesnt worry much about Lionel Messis sporting future. The superstar is transfer-free at the end of the season and has been allowed to have conversations with interested clubs since the end of the year.

In a major interview with La Sexta, Messi revealed that he would ever want to play football in the United States. Whether he is still a player of FC Barcelona after this season, the fedette did not dare to say. Koeman also saw the interview, he announced on Saturday during a press conference. He said he didnt want to make a decision yet. We have to respect that, just like any other player with an expiring contract.
Messi did everything in its power to force a departure last summer, but now he seems to have a lot better to his liking, Koeman has also noticed. He has shown that he only wants the best for the team, says the trainer. Messi is in good shape and there are no subcutaneous stresses at the moment. He feels happy and motivated, that
s the most important thing for us, says Koeman, who, however, has no intention of pushing his captain. That he doesnt want to cut knots yet, I dont have a problem with that. Hes free to decide what he wants. We dont get nervous.
Messi got rest for Barcelonas final game of 2020, in which the Catalans left expensive points against Eibar at home. Sunday night, he can make his return against Huesca.
