The president of FC Barcelona has clarified his remarks about the possible return of Lionel Messi, and that of Andres Iniesta.
When we have the DNA of FC Barcelona, it’s for life. This is why Joan Laporta, the president of the Blaugranas, still intends to rely on the great former members of the club. After appointing Xavi coach, and bringing Dani Alves back into the workforce, Laporta had mentioned the possible returns of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.
“I do not exclude it, he had confided. It happened with Dani, who once said that age is just a number and also made a big financial effort. You tell me about two spectacular players, Leo and Andres. I can’t predict the future, they are still playing. We will always have them with us. In life you cannot know. “
So the door is still open for Messi and Iniesta but Laporta prefers to be clear about them. “They themselves said they wanted to return to Barca, but I’m not speaking as players, Laporta told Cadena Ser. They have spoken in this sense, in public as well. ” If Messi and Iniesta therefore return to Barcelona, it will not be to wear the famous Blaugrana jersey, but rather to integrate the technical staff or the management team. The ball is in their court.
