Messi: ‘Copa America Being Postponed Makes Me Disappointed’

Argentine superstar Messi shared his decision to postpone the date of CONMEBOL’s South American football championship.

In the context of the Covid-19 epidemic spreading worldwide, CONMEBOL decided to reschedule the Copa America 2020 organization by one year. The upcoming tournament will be held in two co-host countries, Argentina and Colombia. This is a better opportunity for Messi to win the first title at the team level.

Messi: ‘Copa America being postponed makes me disappointed’

“Copa America being postponed made me extremely disappointed. This tournament is a special event for me. I am excited to try it again. It is difficult to hear about the postponement of the tournament but I understand, this is the smartest thing to do right now. The best thing is that we look at the good things in the future, “Goal quoted Lionel Messi as saying.

Messi has reached the Copa America final twice but finished second.

Earlier in the Copa America 2019, Argentina was disappointed to finish only in 3rd place. Messi himself was in trouble and suspended at the level for months because of statements criticizing the host country Brazil and the South American Football Association.

Currently, he returned to the army with Barca to wait for the date of La Liga restart. The Spanish government gave the green light for the country’s league in early June.

“El Pulga” said it was difficult for him and his team-mates to play without the audience: “This is a rare thing. I only have to face this when playing with family. , if you look at what is happening around the world, this is a completely understandable decision. “

Barca is the club leading the rankings with 58 points. However, the distance between the host team Camp Nou and the team behind is only 2 points.

He can leave Barca thanks to new rules

The Argentinian striker can still leave as a free agent in the summer of 2020 despite a year of contract with Barcelona.

As a result of the Covid-19 epidemic, Barca’s salary fund and many La Liga clubs will have to cut back to cover the costs. The problem, however, is that clubs have no choice but to agree to a wage reduction with players if they do not want them to leave.

Under Article 41.3 of the Spanish Labor Law, businesses (hereinafter referred to as clubs) are allowed to amend their contracts due to economic effects. In the opposite direction, the employee (player) is allowed to freely leave and is compensated “20 days salary per year of the contract”. Therefore, Lionel Messi is completely allowed to leave Barcelona under Article 41.3 of the Spanish Labor Law.

Leo Messi has one year left to sign with Barca.

His future has been the topic of recent attention. The Argentine superstar’s current contract with Barca will expire in June 2021. However, he hasn’t agreed to a new contract with the Camp Nou team yet.

In the 2019/20 season, Messi scored 24 goals and had 16 assists after 31 appearances in all matches. In La Liga, he scored 19 goals and had 12 assists in 22 matches. This achievement helped him lead the race of “Scorer” and “King of assists” in the tournament.
