‘You Lnow You Can’t Leave’ – New Barcelona President, Joan Laporta Appeals To Lionel Messi

Joan Laporta, the new president of Spanish club, Barcelona FC has appealed to the captain of the team, Lionel Messi to stay at the club barely hours after he was sworn into office on Wednesday, March 17.
Laporta was elected last week to become the president after he went away 11 years in 2010 and addressing members of the football club, he pleaded with the six-time Ballon d’Or winner to reconsider his decision to leave the club following rumors of exiting his team when his contract ends due to unhappiness at the club.

Laporta explained.

“In our first spell we had the best players in Barca history, but if we were successful it was because we had stability,”
“It is Barcelona’s unity which gives you stability and I invite everyone at Barcelona to think about what they can do for Barca.

“I am here to make decisions, like convincing Leo to carry on, taking advantage of the fact that he is here. He knows that.
“You know the affection I hold for you and we will do whatever it takes to keep you here. You know you cannot leave, Leo.

“We will not be able to do it alone. As our anthem says, we are strong all together. More so in these most difficult times. We know how to do it.
“When the pandemic is over our revenue will return.

That will be fixed. There will be strong leadership, because I am well-accompanied. We will make decisions. To defend the club you have to live and breathe it and we do that as much as possible.”
