Lionel Messi Lies - Barcelona Depends Solely On Him

Lionel Messi Lies - Barcelona Depends Solely On Him


Lionel Messi has been phenomenal this past season, as always and has been directly involved with more goals than any player in Spain, with 34 goals and 12 assists in his 32 starts, which is 46 percent of the 99 goals scored by Barcelona.

The past season saw his impact get glaring as Ernesto Valverde tried making the team flexible by resting Messi but this most times ended with Barca losing before the head coach replaces any player with him to salvage a draw and most times a win.

They ended the season with a La Liga trophy, which is the seventh in ten years. but this has all happened during Messi's peak years. From this we could see that Messi might be delusional or just doesn't want to accept the reality thht the club depends solely on him.

"It's crazy [to say] that the best club in the world depends on just one player," Messi told Diario Sport.

"If that's the case, something's being done wrong because Barcelona have [too many] great players to say that they depend on just one. We're talking about top-level players, the best in the world, and it's crazy to say that Barcelona have 'Messi-dependence.'"

Lionel Messi admitted that Barcelona had a great season but will need to improve  if they are to get a better Champions League challenge.

"The truth is we would like to have won more Champions League [games], above all, in the last three years," he said.

"Getting knocked out [in the quarterfinals] cannot happen to us, especially how it happened this time, with the first-leg lead we had [against Roma]. That made the elimination even more painful. It was even worse because of how it happened."
