Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta believes that the club are trying to usher Lionel Messi towards the exit door.
Despite Josep Maria Bartomeu and Ronald Koeman both stating publicly that they want the Argentine to stay, Laporta doesn’t buy it.
“This makes me suspect that they want to sell Messi, which would be a historic mistake,” he said on social media.
“Poor Barcelona in hands of these incompetents.”
Laporta is also not happy with the way in which Suarez, the third highest scorer in Barcelona’s history, has been treated.
“Did you tell Suarez that he’s not in your plans over the phone?” he wrote.
“I think it’s an act of cowardice on the part of the president [Bartomeu] and a lack of respect for the player.
“This way of acting is disgraceful and damages the image of the club.”
