The environment within the partitions of Barcelona Castle has turn out to be heated in the last few hours, which have visible many events, which includes the heated exchanges among Erik Abidal and Lionel Messi.
Although the Catalan group are preparing for a tough King’s Cup quarter-very last fit in opposition to Athletic Bilbao in the ultimate bastion of “San Mames” subsequent Thursday, the fiery environment has attracted attention.
Erik Abidal, the club’s technical secretary, went out and interviewed the press inside the previous couple of hours, notwithstanding the sensitive time the Catalan crew goes through.
Abidal confirmed in his statements that during the time of former coach Ernesto Valverde, many gamers were now not glad or were running hard.
The French remarks led to the revolution of Blaugrana captain Lionel Messi, who responded through his non-public account on Instagram and commented: “Frankly, I do not like to do these things, however I think every body should be responsible for their obligations and decisions”.
“I suppose that when we communicate approximately gamers, we want to outline names, because if we don’t, prices will be brought in opposition to all people, and so one can help the awful things which are going on,” Messi added.
Messi’s behaviour, to which he isn’t accustomed, is now normal, given his position as team chief and he has to guard his group-mates.
Although Abidal become a former player in the Blaugrana ranks, and he knows that criticising the dressing room inside the media is unacceptable, but at his disposal he has unleashed an inner war.
After Mercato’s big failure inside the wintry weather to signal a alternative striker for the injured Luis Suarez, and the crisis exacerbated by means of a renewed harm to Osman Dembele, Abidal insulted his contradictory statements.
Abidal denied having made a suggestion to Al Sadd’s educate to take over technical management from Valverde, and said: “If he has a suggestion, he must show it”, despite the fact that Abidal himself become part of the delegation that came to Doha to negotiate with Xavi, and the Qatari membership introduced a formal provide at the time.
Abidal seems to contradict his statement, “Xavi does not have a whole lot experience”, even though the Frenchman himself has assumed the position of Barcelona’s technical secretary with none preceding experience.
Bartomeo is out of the battle
In light of the modern burning surroundings and the ongoing war between Messi and Abidal, membership president Josep Maria Bartomeo did now not go out to comment or work to calm the environment.
Bartomeo was because of keep a meeting with the membership’s technical secretariat, in particular after the failure of the Winter Mercato, and possibly after the recent war, Abidal finds himself outdoor the walls of the Camp Nou castle, all of the greater so as he’s colliding with Messi on the other side. He is certainly the loser.
