CGTN Sports Talk EP89 Lionel Messi.mp3
Lionel Messi said goodbye to Barcelona at a press conference at the Camp Nou on Sunday after scoring 672 goals in 778 appearances and winning a total of 34 trophies for the team.
Although it has been only days since Barca and Messi announced and confirmed his departure, problems have been there for a long time and finally led to this unpleasant situation between the two sides.
Messi said joining Paris Saint-Germain was a possibility but at 34, he does not have many options left considering his age, salary and the timing of Barca's announcement.
