Barcelona’s president Joan Laporta gave an emotional message to Lionel Messi
Joan Laporta has been elected as Barcelona’s president again. Barca has achieved a lot under his presidency.
He gave a speech on being elected as Barca’s president for the second time. However he spoke some heartwarming message for Messi as well as for Barca fans.
“I take the opportunity to say again that I will try to convince Leo (Messi) to stay with us. That is a must-do task, I will do all I can. He knows it.
“Whatever he does will be OK but we will try to make him stay because he is the best player in the history of football.
“And my apologies Leo, for saying this right here and right now, but you know of my love for you, Barca loves you a lot and if this stadium would be full when you play the next game I am sure you wouldn’t be able to leave.”
Messi reaction? He gave a cute smile behind the mask! It was a great gesture by Laporta. We hope that Barcelona will be back in their beast form under his presidency.
