Milla hopes that Messi stays in La Liga
Luis Milla, who played for both Spain giants in his career thinks that Messi’s move would be worse for La Liga than Ronaldo’s big transfer.
Messi tried to leave Barcelona in the summer but since he had one year on his contract Barcelona didn’t let their icon to leave the club so easily and after a long struggle the Argentinian star chose to stay for the time there is still talks about him leaving Camp Nou so the problem is not solved yet.
Milla insists that Messi should stay because that is better for La Liga as he told Tribal Football:
“I think it is great for Spanish football that Messi has stayed. He's an ambitious player and wants to win titles,
“That didn't happen for him last season and, on top of that, he wasn't connecting well with the sporting director and there wasn't a good feeling with the directors and president in general. Also, there were tensions regarding the change of managers during last season too.
“Essentially, Messi is a mature player in his approach to situations like this. He knows that Barcelona is a club that fits with his style of playing football and shares a winning mentality too.
“Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo has left La Liga and life goes on and Messi could go in the future and life would go on in La Liga too… with other great players…but players like Messi are just not replaceable, they are one-of-a-kind, one-off players.
“Yes, La Liga would survive without Messi but it wouldn't be the same. I'm glad that he has stayed.”
