Why Messi Should Be Blamed For Barcelona's Title Loss (Opinion)

Fc Barcelona's Captain Lionel Messi should be the one to take the blame for their poor run for the Laliga title this season.

Real Madrid were crowned laliga Champions yesterday night after a fine victory over Villarreal and are currently in celebration mood.

However football didn't go well for Barcelona yesterday as they lost to Osasuna in a pathetic display of football, although Messi tried to rescue the team with a free kick the team lacked indept concentration.

After the match Messi who spoke on the current form of the team and what they need to do in order to improve in the champions league also criticize his team mates lack of concentration on the pitch. 

I don't believe any other player should take the blame for their current poor performance but Messi. Messi who is a very skillful and experienced player failed to guide the board in making the right transfer signings. Barcelona have signed Coutinho, dembele, griezman all in a bid to strengthen the squad but this signings have failed to live up to their expectations.

On the issue of Neymar returning to Barcelona in the start of the season, although Messi has made effort to try to convince the board to resign the Brazilian, the transfer didn't go through as expected and I think Messi's effort wasn't good enough.

I refuse to believe that a great footballer like Messi could not pressure the board to resign Neymar despite knowing for a fact that he was highly need in the team.

If Messi should have used action instead of words like threatening to refuse to renew his contract with the club, maybe the Brazilian might have returned and things might not have been as messy and devastating for the club.
