Messi Threatens To Leave Barcelona

  Lionel Messi has every right to be dejected and fed up of Barcelona, and he has now posted an ultimatum in front of the club after persistent problems.

However, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez were quick to put the Barca manager behind their backs and insisted that the loss was only their responsibility. Diario GOL has reported that there is a lot more cooking behind the scenes and nobody really is happy within the dressing room with the kind of job that V...
