What Koeman said about Messi after Barcelona’s 2-1 Victory Over Athletic Club

 


Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has insisted that captain, Lionel Messi, deserves respect because he has done so much for Spanish football.

Koeman said this after Barcelona defeated Athletic Club 2-1 in the La Liga on Sunday night, thanks to two goals from Messi and Antoine Griezmann.

The Dutchman was reacting to a publication by a newspaper in Spain concerning Messi’s contract with Barcelona earlier on Sunday.

“What has come out is intended to damage him. Messi deserves respect,” Koeman told a post-match press conference after the game.

“He has done so much for Spanish football. There are people out to hurt FC Barcelona and Messi.

“If it turns out to be someone on the inside, then that is very bad, and they should have no future at the club.”

Meanwhile, Barcelona has since denied any responsibility for the leak and said they could take legal action.
