Lionel Messi cried in the last press about Barcelona, the club where he spent his career
Today he held the last press conference for the club with tears in his eyes, but he has not yet decided where he will continue his career.
He was greeted with loud applause from reporters, which made him cry, and after giving himself a minute to calm down, Messi began his speech in a trembling voice.
“This is very difficult for me after so many years, I have been here all my life. I’m not ready for this. I was convinced that I would stay here, in my home. We wanted that. The time we spent in this city was wonderful. Today I have to say goodbye to all this. I have been here all my life since I was 13 years old. After 21 years, I leave with my wife and three children. I can’t say that we will not return, this is our home, I am very grateful to my former teammates, the club, all the people who respected me.”, he said at the last press conference.
