Messi He has admitted that his intention was to return, but he had doubts about the final outcome: “I really wanted, I was very excited to be able to return, but, on the other hand, after having experienced what I experienced and the exit I had, I did not want to return to being in the same situation again: waiting to see what was going to happen and leaving my future in someone else’s hands, so to speak”.

The attacker has also insisted that he did not want his return to imply the departure of other players. “I wanted to make my own decision, thinking about myself, about my family. Although I heard that it was said that The league he had accepted everything and that everything was fine for him to return, there were still many other things that had to be given. I heard that they had to sell players or lower player salaries and the truth is that I didn’t want to go through that, or take charge of obtaining something that had to do with all that. I have already been accused of many things that were not true in my career in the Barcelona and I was already a little tired, I didn’t want to go through all that”.

Finally, Messi He has argued that his departure to the MLS is also due to the fact that he seeks to live more calmly with his family. “I am at a moment where I want to get out of focus a bit, think more about my family. I spent two years in which I was so bad at a family level that I did not enjoy it. I had that month that was spectacular for me for having won the World Cup, but removing that was a difficult stage for me. I want to rediscover enjoyment, with enjoyment of my family, my children, from day to day… And that’s why it was a bit the decision not to give up Barcelona“, he has sentenced.

“The truth is that I had offers from another European team, but I didn’t even evaluate it because in Europe my idea was just to go to Barcelona. After winning the World Cup and not being able to go to barca, it was time to go to League of USA to experience football in a different way and enjoy more day to day. Obviously with the same responsibility and desire to want to win and to always do things well. But with more calm “, he has settled Messi.
