Barcelona boss says that it’s impossible to replace someone like Messi.


under-pressure boss

Ronald Koeman

has talked about the team’s situation in case of


departure, admitting that it will be impossible for them to find someone who scores as much as Messi and can take responsibilities as much as Messi.

“We hope he will not leave because he is still the best player in the world and he has shown today,”

Koeman told a post-match interview with



 “It is impossible to play without him.

“He has already scored 30 goals this season, which have given the team a lot of points.

“It is a question for Leo to decide.

“For me and for the team, we hope he stays because if don’t have him, we have doubts about who will score so many goals.”

Barcelona’s defeat against Celta Vigo was their last home game this season, so if Messi decides to leave the club at the end of the season, this defeat would be his last game in the Camp Nou.

The Argentinian superstar will decide about his future as his contract gets closer to the end and the Copa America competition gets closer to its beginning. So we will have to wait to see if he decides to leave Barcelona or not.
