Edu Aguirre has hit out at Lionel Messi for his decision to leave Barcelona this summer.
The Spanish journalist believes that the Argentine’s determination to leave the Blaugrana is an act of treason against the club.
“For me, Messi is carrying out the greatest betrayal in the history of football,” Aguirre told the popular Spanish TV programme ‘El Chiringuito de Jugones’.
“Barcelona fans don’t deserve that.
“Messi is ditching them.
“It’s the moment for Leo Messi to hold a press conference and say: ‘I’ll stay because I have a memory and I know what this club is for me’.
“Messi is jumping off the boat when it’s sinking.
“Messi should not leave now.”
