FC Barcelona, thanks to a meager 2-1 win against Levante, remains in the lead of leader Real Madrid, who won the city derby against Atletico on Saturday with 1-0. Sporting things are going well in itself, but behind the scenes there would be a fight with Leo Messi in a questionable leading role.
Because that’s how the Argentinian superstar from Barça would have had it with sporting director Eric Abidal. According to Don Balon Messi is disappointed in his work, and has told the board that it would be time for someone else. Messi’s biggest frustration would be that Abidal was unable to find a replacement for Luis Suarez.
He is out at least until May due to a serious knee injury. Barça allegedly went looking for a new attacker, the name of Rodrigo (Valencia) sounded very loud, but it did not come to a transfer, much against Messi’s wishes. However, chairman Bartomeu does not seem to have heard the wishes of “De Vlo”, as he would have great confidence in Abidal’s capabilities.
