Juggling week. The lie is a penalty. The one that costs the most is the first, when you arrive at the launch point with the symptoms of the flu. Then everything is training, perfecting the system, looking for variations and being a mental ice bucket. The first lie, as politicians well know, is the most dangerous. It is not known if any facial muscle will give away the offender, if a bloody drop of sweat will appear at the wrong time or if the glasses are going to wobble like Boateng against Messi. Afterwards, everything is training. You take a job and there is no problem.
Messi has run into this universal nonsense with a politician named Bartomeu. The president of Barça does not care about his promises made to the face of the best player in the club’s history, he does not care about the paragraph of a contract, he does not care to confess in an interview that the player was free, he does not care to promise under secret of filtration that resigned if the player stayed, it does not matter to him everything.
The manager chose to protect his skin to comply with the agreement. He will remain like a stony president but not like the one who allowed Messi to leave. He was going to go to a restaurant, a cinema or a pavilion and he was going to be singled out as the guy who left Messi.
Bartomeu was clever and knows what time we live in. The lie does not penalize, it has a reward . Bartomeu deserves a seat. A fringe does not admit debate. The only fixed winner of this mess is the Barça line-up, in the hands of another patch, Ronald Koeman.
January 1, Leo
From now on a curious competition begins in the world of football to seduce a free Messi to negotiate from January 1. Barça will also participate. The ’10’ advisers have bought some very large calculators. Chelsea have paid 80 million for Havertz. If this is the scale, Messi will be covered with oil wells despite his age.
In this time of global images, while Messi announced the most anticipated decision of the decade, Barça TV broadcast a repeated match of the basketball section. Quite a detail.
In this time of global images, to give the most relevant testimony of his sports career to Messi, he had the ‘look’ of waiting for a skewer of sardines in a beach bar. It was a free kick to the barrier for a point and followed by a farce. From the burofax to the flip flop.

Go from here a late recognition.
