Alba: I’ll Be Delighted If Messi Returns To Barca

Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba has revealed that it would be great news for the players if Lionel Messi returns to the club.

Messi, who is currently playing for PSG, has be rumoured to be making a second return to Barca.

Alba doesn’t know what will happen with the Argentinian, but he is in favour of his return fromPSG.

The Barça defender also explained how he experienced the moment when he found out that Messi wasn’t going to continue in 2021.

“I would like him to come back, but I don’t know if he will,” Alba said. “We haven’t spoken about it because he has a contract with PSG. I would like him to come back. It would be good for the club — and for him.”

However, Alba acknowledged that Messi’s adaptation to Paris has improved: “He is happy in Paris. The first year he didn’t have a good time, it was difficult for him to adapt to life there, but I have spoken to him and this year he has been much better.”

“I had a terrible time,” he added. “The day it was announced, I spoke to him in the morning and he told me he was coming from Ibiza to sign (a new contract). Then I saw the news with my wife and I didn’t believe it. I was perplexed for two minutes. It was hard because we have a great relationship. I couldn’t believe that Leo was leaving Barça.”

“I called him and he told me that it was not possible. I didn’t go into details because only he and the club know what happened.

“I don’t know why he couldn’t stay. There are a lot of questions you can ask yourself, but I don’t have an answer. I know he had a hard time when he left. We haven’t talked about it again. He had his children here, his wife, his family, his friends… we won many things thanks to him.”
