Leo Messi breaks the silence, reveals what was said at the club's crisis meeting
Leo Messi has broken the silence. He talks over the controversial case that Barcelona had paid a public relations agency to spread negative words about club legends, including the Argentinean himself.
Leo Messi insists he knows nothing more than what has been said in public about the matter.
Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu held a meeting with first-team players yesterday. For the purpose of clarifying allegations that the board hired i3 Ventures to create accounts on social networks that would stain Bartomeu opponents at the club.
The Argentine striker said the day after that meeting that the club president had told the players the same words he had said in public.
“The truth is that this was a surprise for me because, I was not here but traveling,” says Messi in an interview with Mundo Deportivo, which will be released later.
“When I came I found out more about everything. The president told us the same things he said in public, the same things he said at a press conference, “.
“He told us what the job was and what had happened. I can’t say more. We have to wait and see, because we have been told that there is evidence of this. For me it was all very strange, ”he said.
