Messi was wearing the new Barcelona kit which has been loved by the fans of the Spanish giants.
Barcelona has not been in good form and they would like to turn things around with a little inspiration from Messi. The Spanish giants drew their last fixture against Eibar. Barcelona is currently placed at the sixth spot in the LaLiga points table with 25 points in 15 games. They have won seven and lost four matches this season.
For Messi, it could be the fag end of his career at Camo Nou as the Argentine superstar has already made himself available for trade six months ahead of the expiry of his contract with Barcelona – a club he started his career with and won six Ballon D’Or awards.
Last year, after the humiliating 8-2 loss against Bayern Munich – Messi had informed the officials at the club that he would like to be released. Soon after making this shocking announcement, Messi made a dramatic U-turn and decided to continue with the club till the end of this season.
Barcelona will play Huesca on Sunday in their next LaLiga fixture.
