FC Barcelona star Sergio Aguero has revealed an insider story of how Lionel Messi handled the Catalan giants’ forced dramatic exit.
As largely shocked the global football community, La Liga’s financial rules prevented the club from offering Lionel Messi a new contract.
Before the devastating news was confirmed, Aguero had meanwhile joined Barca in hopes of playing his football alongside Messi – but the dream was not to be as Messi was forced to leave and join the PSG.
âIt was a shocking time for him. He felt very bad. When I found out, I couldn’t believe it,â he told El Pais.
“That Saturday, I went to see him at his house. And, because of my personality, as I saw him rather depressed, I tried to make him forget what had happened.
“I could see he was unable to concentrate and I was trying to distract him. I was telling him about my Esports team. And the things we were doing about it.”
“I arrived with the hope of playing with Leo and that a good team would be put together, which the club tried to do,” he added.
âWhen they called me I thought, ‘I don’t care what they pay me. I will be happy and I will help the team as much as possible, “Aguero concluded.
The next step for Barca is UEFA Champions League action against Dinamo Kiev.
