He Ain’t Loyal: I’ll Trade All My Barca Trophies For Copa America: Messi

share on:

Well, Barcelona fans would not like this at all. Argentina captain, Barcelona legend and international football super star, Lionel Messi admitted that he would rather win one trophy with Argentina than the over 10 trophies with Barcelona.

Messi is set to win his 100th cap for Argentina when his side takes on Jamaica in the Copa America and while his Barcelona career has been trophy-laden, the same cannot be said for his time with Argentina. Messi has endured hardship losing in the 2007 Copa America finals to Brazil and losing again at the World Cup to Germany in the finals, gold medals have proven hard to come by for Messi in an Argentine shirt and when asked if he would sacrifice his Barcelona success for the Copa America, Messi said: “I would give it all up to win the Copa America. This group deserves it for the way they fight. We had a great World Cup and we deserve it.It’s what I dream of. Winning the Copa America would us some give peace of mind for the coming World Cup qualifiers. Not only for my team-mates, for the coach and for me, but for the country, too. The fans also want us to succeed.”

While Argentines would be glad to hear that, I know a few people who wouldn’t be, Luis Enrique, Pepe Guadiorla and Jose Bartomeu are some of those people
