It makes sense for him to have one more reason, so that he wants to leave the "Camp Nou". In the end, such a thing did not happen - at least for now - and Messi will remain in the team of his heart. For this reason - and not only - Kuman took care to show how much he appreciates and how much he expects from him, in view of the new season that is going to start very soon.
Ronald Koeman is Dutch. Everyone knows that. But what few know is how big a fan of discipline the former Southampton coach is. The footballers of Barcelona are slowly discovering it. The veteran defender shows in his own way how things should be done. Even to Lionel Messi. The best football player in the world, as he stressed in his statements to the Spanish media.
"Right now Lionel Messi is the best player in the world. We hope that this year he will show his class and his quality, as he did last year ", his words.
