Video: Camp Nou chants Messi’s name ahead of Pique’s King’s League final
Gerard Pique-sponsored Kings League has been making waves in the streaming industry, with the tournament’s final four matches of the winter split taking place today.
While the tournament was initially being held at Cupra Arena in the port of Barcelona, the final four matches, as Joan Laporta had earlier confirmed, are being hosted at Camp Nou.
The stadium is already sold out, with around 90,000 fans attending the events. Among them are popular footballing figures like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.
Ahead of the games, though, a video shared by Diario SPORT shows that the fans inside the stadiums were chanting Lionel Messi’s name.

This may not shock many as Barcelona have been strongly linked with a move for Messi, who is facing an uncertain future at PSG. His current contract expires at the end of the season and the forward has yet to make his mind up about the future.
Barcelona fans have made it clear that they want their prodigal son back at Camp Nou, as evident by their chants in the King’s League final.
Pique himself has recently stated that Messi’s return would re-energize Catalonia, though stressing that the decision will strictly depend upon the whims of the Argentine himself.
