The first date of La Liga had as one of the protagonists the Danish Martin Braithwaite of FC Barcelona. The player had been one of the most criticized last season for his lack of performance and his inability to assume the position that Luis Suárez had left after his arrival at Atlético de Madrid.
Although the departure of Leo Messi to Paris-St. Germain continues to speak in Spain, the player could become one of the figures of the victory against Real Sociedad this Sunday.
That was the first game that the culé team played its first game at the Camp Nou without its top figure. In the stands a very complicated issue was generated with insults for Joan Laporta. But also some fans applauded, while others whistled and applauded Messi in the 10th minute of the game.
But after the game, the club made a peculiar post on Twitter that seemed like a hint towards their former captain. Within the squad, the one who came out to answer was the former Granada player who scored twice and became the first Dane to do that feat in the 21st century.
“Some like to talk. I speak on the court ”, the 30-year-old forward shot on Instagram, a figure of the triumph of Koeman’s team in the first game of the post-Messi era. Stick for whom?
The publication of Braithwaite adds to the controversy that broke out once the triumph of Barcelona was consummated and the club, through its Twitter account in English threw a hint for the Rosario with the legend “we are Barsa”, ironically about the “We are Paris” (We are Paris), which Leo wore in his presentation shirt in France.
Indirect to Messi?
“We are Barça” (We are Barça), the Spanish team expressed in their account in English, accompanied by an image of the Danish Braithwaite celebrating one of his two goals from the opening day of the League. And of course, everything suggests that it was a stick for the Rosario star.
Is that on Saturday, Leo posed with the shirt that said “We are Paris”, in his presentation on the court in his new team. The same shirt was used by Sergio Ramos, Donnarumma, Hakimi and Wijnaldum, the other four reinforcements that were presented in the Park of the Princes prior to PSG’s 4-2 win over Racing Strasbourg.
Laporta’s words about the state of the club
Of course, the departure of Leo Messi was not ideal and the player implied that the Spanish president and company did not do everything possible to retain it. But Barça continues to do its thing so that the novel does not end. President Laporta even gave a press conference this Monday where he once again threw part of the responsibility for the non-renewal to Messi.
What Joan Laporta said
“I think that Messi did not whistle it (in the 10th minute of Barcelona – Real Sociedad), but the public prioritizes Barcelona and they understood that it should be like that. What is not pleasant is that he goes to a rival who will be direct, such as PSG ”, said the president of the club culé Joan Laporta. And he sentenced: “There is a mutual dislike between both parties and it is understandable because we did not get this to end as we wanted.”
