The Argentinian was delighted to be able to say that “we are much better off now than we were a few weeks ago”
Leo Messi is naturally delighted that FC Barcelona are back on course for the league title. Real Madrid’s shock draw in Valladolid means matters are back in their own hands as they chase a fifth league title in just six years. Win the remaining fixtures at Elche and at home to Atlético Madrid and the championship belongs to FCB. “We have to make the most of this and not let the chance slip” he said this Thursday at an event involving his Foundation.
“We are better off now than we were a few weeks ago” he said. “We now have a chance in the league and we are not depending on results going our way.” Winning the league is something he considers especially important after the setbacks in the Champions League and Spanish Cup.
He ended with some words about the stories that have been appearing in the press in recent months. “A lot of things have come up this year” he said. “And a lot of it is just nonsense, almost of it lies. But I feel fine.”
