Lionel Messi Reconciles With Barca

Barcelona fans happy their hero Messi is staying

Barcelona fans breathed a sigh of relief on Friday, after Lionel Messi ended weeks of speculation by announcing he had decided, with reluctance, to stay at the club.

“If he can stay for one more year and we can make the most of him and go see him play at the stadium, for me it’s very positive,” said FC Barcelona fan Oriol Vives, 31.

Jorge Sos, 39, added: “I think it’s good news for Barcelona because he is the best player in the world.”

Yet some fans felt the saga had soured Messi’s relationship with the club.

“I think it’s good he isn’t leaving but with all the mess he has created, to be honest, it is not good for Barcelona because he doesn’t give the impression he wants to play for the team,” said Sergi Roda, 24.
