With the January transfer window now open, Messi is free to agree contracts with other clubs.
Ronald Koeman has had his say on the matter now after reports came out Messi was left out of the squad for the match against Sociedad.
He said, “There were several players that had some discomfort the other day. That’s why we took Messi off, we took Frenkie and Dest off as well. It seems all of them are going to be available tomorrow. Also Araujo, we have the training session this afternoon as well to see if they are all fit to play tomorrow.”
He also spoke about the upcoming elections.
The important thing is to have everything in order, including the president. We are at a time in a world with Covid and you would have to accept if it does have to be delayed because health is the most important thing. We have to do the maximum to get back to living in a normal world.
Koeman being Koeman also stressed on how Barca can improve:
Be as clinical as we were the other day, that doesn’t always happen. I think the team is better from an attacking standpoint. We have more midfielders getting forwards and we are bringing players forward who have the ability to cause a lot of damage. The team is working well and it’s a burst of confidence for us and it’s shown in the last few games.
