Lionel Messi has quite a fight with his club Barcelona. Today he didn’t show up for the mandatory corona test for players of Barcelona. Because of this he can’t train with the selection anymore
What’s going on?
Messi wants to leave Barcelona, the club where he’s been playing for 20 years. His contract says he has to stay another year, but according to Messi there is also something that would allow him to leave sooner. The club and the soccer player disagree about exactly what that means.
Ronald Koeman is probably not happy Messi didn’t show up today. He is the new trainer of the club and wants to continue with Messi. Last week he called him the best football player in the world.
