Popular pundit, Gary Lineker has come out to react to Lionel Messi handing a transfer request at the club.
Lineker recently revealed that if the Argentine is ready to leave to quit the club, the club must do everything possible to hinder it.
According to him, Messi has been fiercely loyal and he is their greatest ever player, so he has to convinced to stay.
He added that it would be very sad if the relationship between Barca and the football god ended in a fight.
Puyol said, “Setien has been replaced by former Barca defender Ronald Koeman, who has stated that he fully intends on having Messi in his team. However, on Tuesday, Messi alerted the club that he sees his future elsewhere.”
Lineker added, “If Messi is to leave @FCBarcelona by activating a release clause, then I hope the club try to help, not hinder him. He’s been fiercely loyal and their greatest ever player. It would be terribly sad if it finished with a fight between the player and the club.”
Stan Collymore, “If Messi doesn’t go to Juventus where before Christmas he and Ronaldo are caught on camera trading insults in a dressing room, then 2020 just hasn’t happened.”
