Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has insisted that his team will find it impossible to win the Champions League trophy if they do not improve their performances. Thus not agreeing with coach Quique Setien.
The virus has changed lives around the globe. Suspending all sports activities. Local leagues, such as La Liga, and UEFA competitions, such as the Champions League, have been suspended since March.
Barcelona – who returned to training camp last week – were preparing for the return leg of the Champions League semi-final against Napoli when the match was suspended.
The Spanish giants had drawn 1-1 with the visitors in February. While Messi claimed that Barcelona would not be able to win the Champions League. An opinion with which Setien did not agree in April.
Messi was asked about the Champions League again before the potential comeback in August and the six-time Ballon d’Or winner gave a warning to Barcelona.
“I’ve never had any doubts about the team we have and I have no doubt that we can win all the games we have left. But not by playing the way we were playing.” said Messi, who has won four-time the Champions League title.
“Now, everyone has their own opinion, and we have to respect everyone. My opinion is based on the fact that I’ve been lucky enough to play in the Champions League every year. And I know it’s not possible to win the trophy if you play the way we did. Maybe Setien misunderstood me. “
