El Mundo sent shock waves through the sports world after leaking Messi’s contract. They made drastic claims that it was Messi’s contract that has lead the club into massive financial trouble. Ignoring the full picture of both Messi’s value and Barcelona’s larger financial issues, El Mundo falsely placed sole responsibility for the club’s situation on Messi.
This announcement is still shocking. It is one thing to notice red flags, and another to be faced with the reality of losing an entire network. NBCSN has been the home of the Premier League for many years. The network has done so much to grow the game in this country and to promote the league.
There has been too much that has gone wrong over the last few years to fix quickly and many people will need to leave in order to make room for new people to come in, at every level. Unfortunately, Lionel Messi is one of the people that needs to go.
By now, the news has spread around the world that Manchester City has had an outbreak of Coronavirus cases. An outbreak that saw the scheduled fixture against Everton postponed and the first-team portion of City Football Academy (CFA) closed.
The reality of the situation is not pretty. Bartomeu is gone and can no longer damage the club, but the damage that has already been done, will not disappear overnight.
