Someone had to say it..
If you question Messi's loyalty, leadership & captaincy after he put the club ahead of his own happiness by chosing to not take it to court & also publicly called out Bartomeu's poor management of the club & his lies, then you clearly have a brain cell deficit.— sm (@TacticoModerno) September 4, 2020
