Social networking sites were buzzing with a picture of one of the walls of the “Camp Nou” stadium, the stronghold of Barcelona, with the inscription “Messi is a traitor”, in reference to Lionel Messi’s departure from the Catalan team for financial reasons.
And he wrote on the wall in bold in Spanish: “Messi is a traitor.”
Barcelona fans are so stupid, they call Messi so much that after so many years of service they can’t even spell traitor correctly. embarrassment. pic.twitter.com/MmqXFbA0gp

And soon, the Barcelona club management intervened to remove the “offensive” phrase of the team legend.
traitor? Oops, he gave the city more than your entire family..damn those guys who did this..
Messi deserves more respect.. the man did everything in his power to stay.
Go and summon Laporta to choose the Premier League over renewal, you bastards. https://t.co/KKwK2Y629F

Some “Barca” fans also denounced this behavior, which they considered “isolated”, and confirmed that Messi remains the club’s legend, and refused to describe him as a traitor, especially since he did not leave the team with his own desire.
wtf man? I understand that some people are going to be angry because he is going to take PSG out of all the clubs but this? No… Messi wants to stay, he even agreed to cut his wages by more than 50%. Messi will never be a traitor, this is his home. https://t.co/jzcnFj1jEe

Messi held a press conference this afternoon, Sunday, at the “Camp Nou” stadium, the stronghold of Barcelona, in which he announced his departure from the team and bid farewell to the “Barca” fans.
Last Thursday, Barcelona announced in a statement that its star Messi had left the Catalan club, after twenty years of defending his colors.
And “Barca” stated in his statement, that despite an agreement with Messi, “economic and structural obstacles” prevented the Argentine star from remaining in the arms of the Catalan team.
The club expressed the regret of both parties for this sudden rupture.
With the expiration of Messi’s previous contract with Barcelona on June 30, the six-time Ballon d’Or owner is free to move to the club of his choice, and Saint-Germain remains the most prominent candidate for contracting with him.
