Sergio Ramos weighs in on Messi/Barca Saga

Sergio Ramos has weighed in on the ongoing feud between Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

The Real Madrid captain is of the opinion that Messi who can be said to be one of Ramos’ fiercest rivals in La Liga should be allowed to decide on his future as the Argentine superstar attempts to force his way out of Barcelona after two decades at the club

“He has earned the right to decide his future. I don’t know if he is doing it in the best way,” Ramos said ahead of Spain’s opening UEFA Nations League clash with Germany in Stuttgart. 

“For Spanish football, for Barca and for us who like to beat the best, we would like him to stay.”

“Leo makes the Spanish League and his team better, he makes the Clasicos more beautiful because you like to win while being against the best and he is one of the best in the world, Ramos added.  

The pair are roughly the same age and have both won a host of major honours as their teams shared the La Liga title almost uninterrupted over the last 16 seasons.

The six times Ballin d’Or winner who has been at Barca since he was 13, is caught up in what might grow into a bitter legal battle with the Catalan giants after he asked to leave the club as a free agent, but the club is adamant that a 700 million-euro ($833 million) release clause needs to be activated before he be allowed to leave.

Fans are divided on Ramos’ take on the issue, while some applauded him for being logical,

Some think he is just playing along and doesn’t really care. 

Whatever the case maybe, one thing is certain, Barcelona and La Liga as a whole and on the verge of losing something vital should Messi eventually leave.
