Barcelona player Lionel Messi has apparently caught one player helping rival team Real Madrid in La Liga. Now, he wants the player to leave the team. Moreover, other star players like Luis Suarez and Neymar also want the same for him. The player is French defender Jeremy Mathieu.
The defender has been in Barcelona since 2014, but he has managed to have just 14 appearances so far. He has regularly failed to secure a spot in the playing list. Before Barcelona, Mathieu used to play for Valencia. Leo Messi wants him out when the club heads for mass transfers this summer because he is apparently helping the rival La Liga team, according to the Daily Star.
Meanwhile, Barcelona needed somebody to step up and fill Messi's shoes, as the Argentine player was not available against Granada this Sunday. Fortunately, the Spanish team has Luis Suarez who is, according to many, the best striker in world soccer right now. In Messi's absence, he played a larger role for his team. He was on top of his game, as Barcelona won it 4-1. Suarez stood out as a leader and took his team to a convincing victory. Now, his team is just two points behind the rival team, Real Madrid.
According to The Sun, it's not Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar, but Luis Suarez who is the best striker in La Liga. He has scored more goals, not including penalties, than any other player since his debut in October 2014. He has scored 76 times so far, with Messi scoring 75 times and Ronaldo 69 times.
Barcelona earlier expressed its shock at FIFA's decision to ban Leo Messi for four international matches. According to the Spanish soccer club, the Argentina player is one of the most disciplined ones, both on and off the field.
