Leo Messi‘s brother, Matias, has assured on his son’s Twitch channel that for the international to return to Barcelona, changes would be needed.
What’s more, he directly demands that such a scenario would need the departure of Joan Laporta.
MARCA has confirmed the authenticity of the images, but the star’s entourage has dissociatesd itself from the statements from his brother
Matias’ words in full
“We are not going to return to Barcelona, and if we do, we are going to do a good clean out,” Matias said on the channel Labajada10.
“Among them, kicking out Joan Laporta, ungrateful with all that Messi gave to Barcelona.”

The Argentina forward’s brother has also been very critical of the fans, who he has even branded as traitors.
“The people didn’t help him, they should have gone out for a march or something, let Laporta go and let Messi stay,” he continued.
“The Catalans are traitors. My mom told Lionel once, they’re going to pay you like Ronaldinho.”
In addition, Matias Messi has pointed out that it was Leo Messi who put Barcelona on the soccer map.
“Nobody knew them before, only Madrid and getting paid like that is not good,” Matias Messi added.
On whether he likes Pedri or Gavi more, he said that neither of the two but, in the end, he chose the Andalusian, although with nuances.
“He fights with everyone, at any time he leaves you with one less,” he said of Gavi.
Finally, Matias Messi has fully agreed with the statement of a viewer who said that the history of Barcelona is Lionel Messi himself.
“Anyone who has had the opportunity to travel to Barcelona, enters the Museum and it is Messi,” he responded.
