Barcelona are facing a serious crisis in their dressing room, as the relationship between Lionel Messi and Marc-Andre ter Stegen has reached a boiling point for the second time. This is not the first time that the couple have fought at Barça, as they have also had problems in the past.
A report by Diaro Gol states that the two of them have had a massive breakup that has caused their relationship to completely fall apart. The reason is because of Messi’s vote in the FIFA The Best awards. The 33-year-old South American had voted Keylor Navas best goalkeeper followed by Manuel Neuer and Jan Oblak. A rather shocking choice of votes from Messi, who generally always voted for his teammates.
Lionel Messi’s decision to snub Marc-Andre ter Stegen for Keylor Navas at the FIFA Best Awards has not gone well between the two teammates. Diaro Gol’s report ensures that Ter Stegen has even reconsidered his future at Barça despite having recently renewed his contract with the club.
The German goalkeeper has reportedly suspended his autobiographical film, with the reason that the former Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper wants his film made next season when Messi is expected to leave.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has dropped another bomb on Barcelona after his interview with La Sexta where he revealed his reasons for wanting to leave last summer and why his potential exit was blocked by Josep Maria Bartomeu. It is true that the 33-year-old will be leaving the Camp Nou next summer, however, as of now, it appears that there is no offer.
The dressing room is currently trashed as the club continues to underperform. The draw against Eibar saw Lionel Messi leave the stadium stands with his head down and his eyes downcast.
