Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is confident of Lionel Messi’s commitment to the Camp Nou outfit despite the recent spat with Sporting director Eric Abidal and the Copa del Rey exit.
Messi’s future at the club has been a subject of discussion over the past days.
It’s been another week of speculation regarding Messi’s future after his online blow-up with Abidal.
News that he is refusing to consider anything beyond a rolling one-year contract offer has added to the speculation.
But after their Copa del Rey elimination by Athletic Bilbao, Pique insisted last night: “He has already proven several times that he does not want to leave.
“But it’s something you have to ask him.”
