Edgardo BAUZA loves to talk and it appears as if one of his latest comments has angered FC Barcelona.
Edgardo BAUZA took to the media to talk about Lionel MESSI’s latest injury. The Argentina National Team coach was not happy with Lionel MESSI being rushed back from injury and played by Barcelona. Here’s what he had to say:
“Barcelona sent us messages asking us to take care of MESSI. But it was them who didn’t take much care of him.”
Barcelona coach Luis ENRIQUE replied to BAUZA’s comments saying:
“The truth is that we all look out for MESSI’s well being along with the well being of every player at our club.”
Following those comments, the AFA released a statement apologizing to Barcelona about BAUZA’s comments. Armando PEREZ spoke to BARTOMEU (Barcelona president) stating “We have to have a good relationship with Barcelona”. Barcelona spokesman Josep VIVES came out and stated:
“The AFA has contacted Barça to express its apology for the comments made by the manager in relation to the injury of Leo MESSI. (Barça and the AFA) will work so that Leo MESSI recuperates as quickly as possible because, as Luis ENRIQUE said, ‘MESSI is a global ambassador for football.”
Personally speaking, if there is someone to blame for MESSI’s injury, I think it’s everyone involved. From Argentina to Barcelona to MESSI himself. Of course Barcelona are the one that pay his salary but in my opinion, I don’t think they have ever given him enough time to fully recover from his injuries.
