Lionel Messi has had enough of RUBBISH Barcelona – Julien Laurens | La Liga

published on July 17, 2020

Barcelona they lose today against Osasuna two-to-one 10-man Osasuna gab this just felt like kind of the end of a total capitulation for Barcelona yeah this is the bottom falling out at the end of the season and you know there's no good way to say to leave there's a

Title but there are plenty of bad ways and I think this Barcelona team showed showed what the wrong way to do it you chose one of the worst possible ways Messi's words after the game what happened during the game Archer on the

Bench seemingly taking a nap you know you put all these things together and you almost have a postcard of the turmoil and it really has been turmoil turmoil at Barcelona for many different reasons

Over the past three four or five months and it really spilled over decisively onto the pitch and not even Messi could go and erase that on the night Jules Messi used the word intensive of e ganas intensity and desire to describe

What was wrong with Barcelona and not just in the match today but the season overall I mean we don't hear him speak much but again when he does it is becoming more and more critical what do you make of comments yeah and he also

Said we have to you know to be self-critical to to really look while it's been happening not just decision but before he said the fans have lost patience and rightly so because we have not given them anything and you also

Went to say that if they keep playing like this in the Champions League when the face not polina seconder of the rest his team they're not going to go through they'll be out of Europe as well so you're right it's rare that he talks and

It's even rarer that he talks like that in those kind of words we knew he was unhappy because of all the mesta has been created at the club all around him he's his war with a battalion and bartimeo but for him to talk like that

As I mean this is really when you realize how bad everything is pretty much at the club and also what was really telling I thought was his reaction when he scored a free-kick to make it 1-1 at the time which was a

Lovely free graphic but then he put his hand like that and clearly he's had enough he's had enough of the mess around of the rubbish players the rubbish recruitment no direction of the club and

And and you can understand him he's the best player that's ever played the game and look where he's not losing to us Asuna home in the 37th game of the season is ridiculous I think though Jose I mean I think this this was a big call

By him but I think it's what a leader does right whether it's him I don't know if Jarrod pika did it in public or if he waited until the dressing room because this is the kick in the backside you need you have to regain that intensity

Because you have a return like in the Champions League coming up you know even reference the Champions League directly obviously they're playing Napoli and you know maybe it is good to rock the boat at this stage doesn't matter what

Happens next week last game of the season nobody cares it's all about what happens against Napoli and going forward you can still salvage something and so you know Messi who who's been quiet as you said most of the season now is the

Time to speak now is the time to go and ruffle feathers now is the time to to rock the boat and I think it was the right call from him and and I didn't see it as an attack on on tsai-tien the way some people have spun it some people

Even suggesting that you know this could cost attendance job I saw it as an attack on a whole structure around them from bartimeo on down because that is really what has failed but their own in this season as much as some some of the

Wacky choices at the ends may let's go there because in the post match interview he also mentions will have to change a lot in order to compete for the Champions League Catalan radio one report suggesting that key case at the

End may be in fact done at Barcelona Jules the Champions League is still out there could they should they as we've seen since to draw last week that they ended the the really really tough part of the draw well so they would have to

Play much better of course a message right with more intensity with more desire for sure set en if you still they would have to find the right formula and the right tactics first to get over Napoli and

That's not given as we said and we've seen we look at rusev still playing really well in the last few weeks since since the serie restarts as well and then if you go through that then you have to play probably Bayern and

Again that would be very very difficult task so it's not looking good for them winning the Champions League but you never know when you've got missing you seem anything's possible of course but it was interesting to hear set Jenna's

Well in his press conference after the game saying I would like to be there for the Champions League but I don't know I don't know if I would be there I think he knows he knows that this defeat tonight and and and the way the season

Has gone since the restart could could really cost him his place I don't know who would come in I don't know if Charlie can come in from August have like a that Champions League to to start his career as a personal manager I'm not

Sure if that's the plan I don't know who else could you give that job if you if you get rid of sets yen but I'm not sure it would be the best timings and the best idea to get rid of your manager or be not having been great in the last few

Weeks to go into such a big game against Napoli gab you suggest that this is rock-bottom if so why keep set Iain because you have a Champions League to play for and chucking cha V in there for for one game chocolate I mean if they

Are going to make a change and I think you make a change when you're convinced the players aren't going to respond I think Messi's words suggest that the players will respond because they only have so many cracks at the Champions

League for better worse they're in around a 16 game we it's not as if everything Citians done has been back you know when when he turned it around when he played the diamond with Messi in the hole behind Suarez in Griezmann you

Did see signs of progress and in individual games and this is what we're talking about let's not forget these are all individual games you got the return leg and snappily quarterfinal semi-final 90 minutes mano a mano individual format

And you know what a note in that context was just 90 minutes most of the time you're going to pick the team that has the annul Messi in it so I think you stick with Messi unless there really is something you start with Scythian

Obviously you stick with Messi huh you stick with City analysts is some kind of a player revolt or whatever else or they will be mad to to Chuck Chavez somebody else we were looking at as a permanent manager Chuck a minute the deep end at

The stage okay Jules I'll give you one more chance to come good on this was it a mistake to get rid of Valverde who wonderly of course it was not of course she wasn't it wasn't and let's not forget Sachin

Was not first choice either they didn't sack Valverde to go and get ki khn who was walking his cows you know when when the phone could arrive that was not the plan initially he they had to do it because the plan a and Plan B didn't

Work out javi and Ronald Koeman but that was not the plan initially they had to get rid of already because it was even worse probably than why it is now although this is rock-bottom I think he was even more wrong button before with

Valverde so I agree with gaps attended some good things some some other things that were not very good but he deserves just to change to try to put things right at least against Napoli and then see after that in the Champions League

Well let's not forget everything is on one game and again with Messi over one game anything is possible so I think he deserves to be there and then we will see after that thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for more sports highlights
