Messi hasn’t made a sudden decision

Juan Carlos Unzue believes that Leo Messi has not made a sudden decision, declaring his desire to leave Barcelona. However, the former Barcelona assistant coach does not feel any significant problems if Messi eventually decides to stay. “The decision he made was not in the heat of the moment, it’s something good, although he certainly has his reasons, from the fact that I know it’s clear,” he told reporters. “I thought Messi would finish his career at Barca. I want to think that the decision he made was not easy for him. If Leo stays, it won’t be a big problem. He will continue with all the ambition that he has shown since the Argentine was 16 years old, his ambition is stronger, his desire to win and make people enjoy themselves than if Messi was more or less happy,” he added.

Juan feels that Messi wants to go to a place where he can be successful. “He wants a project that motivates him, and that will make him win,” Unzue said. “The difference between Messi and the rest is his desire to keep winning even after how Lionel has already won everything. When he retires, we will appreciate the fact that he has remained at the highest level for so many years,” he said. The former boss of Celta Vigo and Girona was sadly diagnosed with ALS a few months ago and said he enjoyed family time. Now I am resting much better than years ago,” he said.
