Barcelona: Lionel Messi believes Barcelona could have a better chance of winning the Champions League than before football’s coronavirus-provoked break, providing the competition can restart.
Speaking to Catalonia’s leading sports papers El Mundo Deportivo and Sport, Messi said on Friday: “It may be that this break benefits us [Barcelona], let’s see if the competitions return and we can find out.”, said dpa international.
Messi surprised everyone in Spain earlier this year when he said that the current Barcelona side did not have what it takes to win the Champions League.
“I never doubted the squad we had and I have no doubt we could still win every competition we are going for but not playing the way that we were playing,” he said in Friday’s interview.
“Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Mine is based on many years of being lucky enough to play in the Champions League. I know that the way we were playing was not going to be enough to win it.”
