Why Messi thinks Barcelona wont win the Champions League

Barcelona has had a rocky season so far, having to change their coach within the season which is unlike a giant club like Barcelona. Bringing in their current coach Setien who couldn’t change the affairs of the club, even making it look worse than Ernesto valverde left it. They also ended up having a dressing room crisis recently, with Messi at multiple times ignoring the tactical instructions and words of the assistant manager Sarabia, causing a divide in the dressing room and rumors of the Argentine legend refusing to renew his contract and plans of leaving the club soon.

Following Barcelona’s defeat against Osasuna and Real Madrid crowned champions of Spain, Messi was interviewed at the end of the game about the current happenings, including his future and Barcelona’s recent bad records in the Champions league knockout stage. With regards to their opportunity in the UCL race, the forward pointed out at their lack of chance to win the trophy, in his honest review of the club he insisted that the club cannot win the champions league, Messi who did not waste time in giving his review about their campaign, pointed out that if their current level of football is not good enough to win La Liga, they won’t have any chance in the Champions league.

Messi looking embarrassed also said that if they do not change their mentality and performance, that they will lose the upcoming match against Napoli, he also made reference to their last UCL campaigns where they were beaten by Roma and Liverpool, pointing out that the fans are losing patience in the club and players following their lack of continental silverware. This is not the first time he gave this type of interview, following the sack of Velvarde, he also spoke about their performance and the possible calamity awaiting them if a change is not made soon.

With Messi’s contract ending 2021, with reports that he has refused to renew his contract following the crisis rocking the Catalonia club, there are rumors that some clubs have been preparing bids for the superstar, with links to Manchester city to re-unite him with his former manager Pep Guardiola and reports linking him to play alongside longtime rival Ronaldo in Juventus.
