Two percent of Barcelona fans don't like Lionel Messi

Published 5 Comments

Barcelona club president Sandro Rosell has revealed that a club poll conducted amongst fan members found that two percent of fans didn't want Lionel Messi in the team.

Messi has been the symbol of Barcelona's succesful era over the past 10 years.

Since joining the club as a young 13-year-old, he has scored 220 league goal, won six La Liga titles, three Champions League titles and four individual Ballon d'Or awards.

Despite being just 26, he is already widely considered to be one of the best footballers ever.

But some people just can't be satisfied after Rosell revealed that as much as two percent want Messi out of the club.

Rosell was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "In the club we do internal polling and there is two percent who do not like Messi. I would like to know these two percent."

The president also said that Messi is forming a strong bond with new signing Neymar. 

There were concerns that a clash of personalities was on the way after Neymar signed from Santos for £48.6m but Rosell confirmed quite to opposite is happening.

He added: "Messi and Neymar are coming along very well. When I see them in the locker room they are getting on fantastically well."
