I would love to be a technical secretary and live in Barcelona — Messi

Lionel Messi has revealed hew would love to be a technical secretary in the future but not certain if it would be at his former club, FC Barcelona, or somewhere else.

However, the PSG star said he and his family will surely go back to Barcelona to live because “tt’s what my wife wants and what I want”.

Speaking during an interview with Sport at his residence, Messi when asked about leaving Barca said; “The truth is that, as I explained on my way out, I did everything possible to stay, never at any time was I asked to play for free. I was asked to cut my salary by fifty percent and I did it without any problem. We were in a position to help the club more.

“The desire and desire of me and my family was to stay in Barcelona. Nobody asked me to play for free but at the same time it seems to me that the words said by the president are out of place.

“They hurt me because I think he doesn’t need to say that, it’s like getting the ball off you and not assuming its consequences, or taking charge of things. This makes people think or generates a type of doubt that I think I do not deserve”.

Also speaking on possible moves when his contract with PSG expires and whether he plans to return to Barca, Messi said; “I don’t know if when my contract with PSG ends.

“What is almost confirmed, and for sure, is that we are going to live in Barcelona again and that our life will be there. It’s what my wife wants and what I want. I don’t know if when my contract with Paris ends but we’ll go back to Barcelona to live.

“Yes. I always said that I would love to be able to help the club in what may be useful and can add and help the club to be well. I would love to be a technical secretary at some point. I don’t know if it will be at Barcelona or not.

“Or if it will be otherwise. If there is a possibility, I would like to contribute again in what I can because it is the club that I love and I would love for it to continue to be good, to continue growing and to continue being one of the best in the world”.
