Lionel Messi is part of FC Barcelona's Problem.

Lionel Messi is a Great player and there is no doubt about that. He has given his all to a club who helped him and his family when all hope was lost. He has won many trophies with FC Barcelona and made a huge name for himself with the team. 

FC Barcelona has not been the team we know this season. Their performance have been inconsistent and as such had to sack their Manager Valverde. They appointed a new Manager Quiqe Setien but it looks like their problems won't go away.

There have been a lot of blame game in the top management of the club. With lots of it leveled against the Clubs President Mr. Bartomeu. It's no secret that some of Mr. Bartomeu's actions and inactions have cost the club in many ways but some of the blame should also go to Lionel Messi (La Puga).

Why do I say so? Many a times some player have come to FC Barcelona and have complained that La Puga has not give them the face and even sometimes have complained to the technical staff that he cannot play with some of the players. Sometimes he likes to choose the kind of players he will like to play with. When those players don't perform he goes back and tell management that they have not been doing their jobs properly. 

Also it's high time Barcelona move him on. I agree that he has done a lot for the club but he has become a problem in the sense that every Coach there not go against La Puga. In the early days of the immediate past Manager Ernesto Valverde's reign he tried not limit his playing time. It didn't go down well with Lionel Messi. He had some problems with that decision.

Since I became very much interested in football, I have always been told that no player is bigger than any club. So why does it looks like Lionel Messi is bigger than FC Barcelona. Players like Figo, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Romario, and even Maradona have been moved on why is Barcelona finding it difficult to do the obvious. Real Madrid has even moved on from Christiano Ronaldo. It will no be easy but it for the future good of the team.

Lionel Messi has been loyal to FC Barcelona and played his hearts out for the club. Nobody will complain if he says he wants to move on. But I think this summer is the right time for him to move.
