Jordi Alba joined Messi while talking about Eric Abidal. As you may know, there is serious drama going on between the team squad and management.
Eric Abidal has a strong position
The former Barcelona player is the sporting director of the team. Club’s president signed him as a sporting director because Abidal was one of the best defenders in the history of the team. Three days ago, Eric gave a fascinating and dramatic interview.
During the interview, Eric admitted that the team squad is divided into different groups. He said that one group of footballers was not happy with Ernesto Valverde because of his work ethic. Some of Barcelona’s players believe that Ernesto’s training was not good enough to fight against big clubs like Liverpool, Bayern, PSG, Juventus, etc.
Eric Abidal noted that Ernesto Valverde had few favorite players, and they would defend him in any situation. After the interview, team leaders stated their opinions about Eric’s interview.
Jordi Alba joins Lionel Messi
As you may know, Lionel Messi posted part of Eric’s interview in the story of Instagram. Lionel added his commentary stating that Eric should not say a thing like that. Messi is the captain of the team, and he should clarify many things in the team. Lionel asked Eric to name the players who were against Ernesto Valverde.
Yesterday we saw another blow for Lionel Messi and team. Athletic Bilbao won the dramatic match with a one-goal lead, and it was a very disappointing moment for Messi. We saw Lionel’s face at the end of the game, and he was very frustrated, disappointed, and confused.
After the match, Jordi Alba met with journalists and asked for a few minutes for a personal statement. Spanish defender said that Messi was right in his statement. Outside, people throw a lot of negative things towards Barcelona, and insiders must not do the same. Every person working for Barcelona should follow that line. At the same time, Jordi said that Eric was Barca’s player and knows how team members feel inside the dressing room.
