Messi Posters Torn Down From Outside Nou Camp Stadium

Messi Posters Torn Down From Outside Nou Camp Stadium

Lionel Messi’s face was removed from outside Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium on Tuesday as the Argentine closes in on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old’s shock departure from the Spanish side was announced last week and Messi waved goodbye to the club he spent his entire career at in an emotional press conference on Sunday.


Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday that he is set to commit to French side PSG on a two-year contract worth £1m a week and Barcelona have started their new era by removing pictures of their former captain from the club’s surroundings.

Messi took centre stage in a large image of multiple Barcelona stars including goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter-Stegen, Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann, but construction workers took down the strips showing Messi’s face.

The entire poster on the side of Barcelona’s 99,000-seater stadium has been removed following Messi’s departure, while club officials were also seen taking down smaller, street-side posters with the Argentina’s face on it.

Messi flew into France on Tuesday to complete his free transfer to PSG just over 48 hours after waving goodbye to the Catalan club.

An emotional Messi broke down in tears at a farewell press conference and called for ‘humility and respect’ from the club after he left.

    That is human beings for you and most especially white people. When they are enjoying you, you will be like a big gold that no one should touch but immediately they are not getting favor from you, you will see their true colour.

    Used and dumped. Life goes on any aways.

    Good luck to Messi. God bless Nigeria!!!

      I don’t think this was done to spite the ionic no 10, but rather to make it easier for everyone to move on especially the fans.

      Pele ehn…I know you have never heard anything like “image rights” before. That’s why everything to people like you has to do with race and skin colour.

    That wall is for Barca advertising. Messi’s picture on that wall was not for decoration, but for advertisement purposes. Since Messi is no longer a Barca player, they can’t use his picture to advertise anymore. Messi could even sue them if they keep his picture up there without compensating him.
    So this is not a case of USED AND DUMPED. This is business.
