“Barça is where I wanted to be and the club I love. From the first day, I felt comfortable here.”
I remember Balotelli saying ‘racism makes me feel alone’. I’m so fucking glad he’s at Liverpool. We’ll make sure he never walks alone.
Socio Messi [MD]
An emotional and ‘Barcelonista’ response of Leo Messi to the brief crisis experienced last summer, when he admitted that he would consider leaving if the fans or the club did not want him. Now, he has strengthened his ties more than ever with the club he came to as a child.
Today, beyond becoming a Barça socio, Messi has expressed his desire to also enroll his child Thiago as a member. The entourage of player confirms that when the agenda of the crack and little Thiago permit, they will pass by the OAB to receive his card. It will be soon.
The gesture, seemingly normal, contains deep symbolism and determination. A key to understanding that the future of both Messi and Barça is sealed - regardless of all the noise there always has and always will be around Argentina.
After his promise to Tito Vilanova in his last days, not only did Messi’s determination to stay in Barcelona become stronger than ever, but he matured as a person and head of household at age 27. He found that having gone this far, the matter of even considering undertaking another adventure, is now fully closed: Messi cannot be explained without Barça, and Barça cannot be explained without the best of all time either.
