With the recent crisis that Barcelona is going through, Lionel Messi has been linked with different teams as he has told the club that he wants to leave in case a convincing sporting project is not presented.

Samuel Eto’o is strictly against such an idea and explained his love for Lionel Messi – so much that if he were to leave, he believes that we should find a new club name for FC Barcelona.

“I love Leo as if he were my son.

“I always want the best for Messi, but the club is Messi. If Messi leaves Barcelona then we need to change the club’s name.”, said the Barça icon in an interview with TyC Sports.

Eto’o added his thoughts on the recent rumors regarding Messi willing to leave the club: “There’s a need to do everything possible to ensure Messi finishes his career at Barcelona. We’re lucky that we currently have the best player of all time.”

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.
