Lionel Messi Says He Is Tired Of Always Being The Problem At Barcelona

Published

Lionel Messi has revealed he is “tired of always being the problem” at Barcelona after receiving criticism from the uncle and former agent of club team-mate Antoine Griezmann last week.

Messi, one of the greatest players in football history was accused of implementing a “regime of terror” in Barca training by Griezmann’s former agent Eric Olhats.

The France international’s uncle, Emmanuel Lopes also criticized Messi, suggesting training sessions in Catalonia are designed purposely to please Messi.

“[Griezmann] was convinced that he wasn’t going to be successful within the first six months, but what I didn’t expect was that it would last an entire year,” Emmanuel Lopes told El Chiringuito.

“Besides, with Messi, I know what’s going on inside [the club] – it’s not easy.

“Basically, [Messi] doesn’t work hard enough at Barca and the training sessions are structured in order to please certain people, which is fine if you don’t want to work [as hard].”

“Antoine needs to work, even though others don’t need as much effort to play well.”
“He’s the other way around – he needs to put in a lot of effort for himself.”

Messi has now responded to the criticisms.

The 33-year-old said: “The truth is that I’m tired of always being the problem of everything at the club.”

Griezmann endured a frustrating debut season at Barca last season after sealing a £107million move from Atletico Madrid. He admitted at the end of last season that it took him a while to “get along” with Messi.

When recently quizzed on his relationship with Messi, the forward said: “It has been similar to me relationship with [Kylian] Mbappe, at first we did not meet through the passes and it took me a long time to get along with him.

“With Messi everything will be better”.

Nana Akonadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is wife of Late Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has made an explosive statement in a press conference this afternoon, Monday 23rd November 2020, saying that, former President John Dramani Mahama tried so hard to silence Rawlingsin the affairs of NDC when he was alive.

Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is the Presidential Candidate for National Democratic Party (NDC), held her press conference today at Alisa Hotel.

In the statement of the NDP, they slammed the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama for trying to use the death of Mr. Rawlings to get political sympathy to win votes in the coming general elections.

Reading on behalf of the party, the NDP General Secretary Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media said the NDC is being hypocritical in the wake of the demise of the late statesman.

He said “With what he did with the demise of former President Mills, he should not be allowed to do the same with the death of our beloved, former president Rawlings. And Ghanaians should not oblige to that. The hypocrisy of the NDC when Jerry John Rawlings was alive, [was such that] John Mahama desperately wanted to silence him and now that Rawlings is no more, Mahama finds it expedient to utilize his death to galvanize support for his weak base within the NDC rank and file and the country at large to salvage his 2020 campaign which is going nowhere.”

He added “Suddenly, the individuals within the NDC under the current leadership of John Mahama who publicly vilified Rawlings have rediscovered a new voice proclaiming themselves to the true adherent of his ideals and those who used foul languages against Rawlings are now hailing him.”

However, for those in the Tier 3 measures, fans will still not be able to attend sporting events.
