POST REPORTED:

The famous newspaper reported that they interviewed around 40 former and present employees and were strictly told that their names or personal information would not be disclosed to the public. 15 out of 40 employees accused the staff members of harassment.

REDSKINS FACING PRESSURE TO CHANGE ITS NAME:

Lionel Messi decided to leave the football Club

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi is a worldwide famous international soccer player. He remained the captain and main player of Argentina’s national team and FC Barcelona. Messi made the best record to score in football matches and also won many awards individually for giving such an amazing performance in the world of soccer. 

Lionel Messi decided to leave the club

The Argentine star Lionel Messi tells Barcelona that he has decided to leave the club this summer. Lionel Messi has sent a letter to Barcelona informing the club that he wants to leave the team and will ultimately terminate his contract.

According to Catalin radio station RAC1, Lionel Messi told new coach Ronald Koeman that he sees his future away from the Camp Nou. Messi told new coach Ronald Koeman that he sees himself more likely to leave than stay at the Camp Nou.

According to Catalin Radio station

According to Catalin radio station RAC1. Lionel Messi, who interrupted his holidays to meet with Ronald Koeman, told the new coach that literally he is “more out of the club than in it. Lionel Messi, no doubt the greatest player.

In theory, the clause had to be activated before June 10,20 days before the end of the usual footballing year, but the unusual circumstances of the coronavirus-enforced pause in the season mean that he faiths to accomplish a canceling of his contact now during the deferred off-season.

The disagreement is that the essence of the division was for a decision to be finished in the few weeks following the end of a season and there are documents that are signed by Barcelona and by FIFA that express the belief that a season finishes when the match is played.

In the champions league, Messi has spent the days since Barcelona’s humiliation by Bayern Munich, quarter-finals a week ago.

Major threat after Messi decision to leave

A threat that was suggested that also made up the Argentine’s mind was that Messi will not receive any special treatment. Lionel Messi has reportedly spoken to Pep Guardiola over the prospect of joining Manchester United and has started negotiations with the Argentine’s agent.

It was revealed on Tuesday that Barca legend Messi, who has expanded his entire career at the Camp Nou, has told the club he wants to move on to meadows now. That has started the rumor on where his next destination will be and according to Spanish outlet radio Catalunya, Messi has already contracted former boss Guardiola about a move to the Etihad.

Messi and Guardiola won two Champions League trophies and the three La Liga titles in a period where the argentine forward became the best player in the world.

Earning of Messi, Approximation 

There are no more clubs who would give a satisfactory salary to Messi according to his standard. When Messi decided to leave his club, so many other club owners were in search of a way to make a contract with Messi. Landing Messi would be a dream of any president, coach, or fan. However, there are no clubs who could give Messi his salary according to his level.

According to reports

 According to a report published by L’Equipe a few months ago, Messi is the highest-paid player in the world, with a gross salary of $8.3 million per month. That amounts to a staggering $99.6 million a year – an undoubtedly exorbitant figure for any club, no matter how big the potential financial benefits of signing Messi could seem.

LIONEL MESSI’s EXPIRY CLAUSE :

As agreed in the last contract signed by Messi, the conclusion clause for the Argentine international is set to $700 million – a figure that is practically unreachable for any club in the world. It must be remembered that the most expensive transfer in history was that of Neymar, for whom PSG paid Barcelona $222 million back in 2017.

However, the same contract signed by Messi also stipulated that he could leave Barcelona freely at the end of this season. Under stipulated, although he still has one season left on the contract (until June 2021), Messi would have the option of leaving Barcelona without his new club having to pay for his arrival.

However, in this case, Messi had to give information about his decision to leave the Club before June. But considering the typical season that has taken place due to the coronavirus pandemic, which ended just a few days ago, a legal dispute on this matter would be a certainty.

WHAT is the main reason, Messi decided to leave the show

There are many occasions in the past when Argentina has been frustrating over the performance of Lionel Messi in several matches. And all those incidents confirmed the news that they would not be able to compete in further matches in Europe. 

There have been several situations in the last year, including the humiliation of football players for not giving a good performance during many matches in January. The players do not trust that Barcelona directors are capable of taking the club forward.

Could he be back with the U-turn?

It seems very unlikely that Messi will change his mind after having taken such a long time to consider the decision. The fact that he has gone so far as sending a burpo to the club informing them that he wishes to leave the club while not continuing to remain in the club in another year.

It seems highly unlikely that his stance will change. The club will now fight tooth and nail to argue that this clause expired on June 10 and therefore can not be activated, but the player and his lawyers will argue that they have legal grounds.

 Messi expected to leave the house

It was known earlier that Messi has been deciding to leave the football club and the owners of the club have been in search of finding another better play to play for their football club. Journalist Marcelo Bechler claimed on Monday that he has decided to leave, which was followed by the conversion with Ronald Koeman where he said that he saw himself more out of Barcelona than in.

CAN HE leave the club with no Cost?

This is the big question and it could see a tug of war between the club and the player’s lawyers. which may finally end up in court. Messi’s argument is that the clause in his contract could be activated at the end of the season, which is a normal year would be on June 10, like it is started in the deal.

Due to this pandemic situation all around the world, Messi was not able to make time to confirm his decision of leaving the club properly. The players reported that the contract has already been signed to continue playing in the club until the final match occurred, which would make the original June 10 invalid. The club, however, argues that the June 10 still stands, and he is still legally under contract.

COULD THIS LEAD TO BARTOMEU’S RESIGNATION?

It is not sure that he will be going to resign after all this situation that has already created all around Messi. He has weathered many storms in his time in charge at the club and plans to fulfill the plans set out last week and guide the club until the presidential elections, which are scheduled for March.

Which club would be assumed to make deal with Messi

Lionel Messi has decided to leave Barcelona but what do you think would be the best place for Messi to Land on, to continue his career in football?

The announcement on Tuesday Night

On Tuesday night, an announcement was made to be in front of all people including Fans that Messi has decided to leave the club, Barcelona. The cost, of course, would be enormous – even if there is no transfer fee involved – but the rewards could also be huge. And all the other clubs are just here to see another mega news which would be unexpected in anyways. 

Messi obsessions 

Messi’s obsessed by winning the Champions League again,” Spanish football expert Graham Hunter told Sky Sports News, and that is an obsession shared by City and Guardiola. Messi has included another victory to his records since Guardiola left Barcelona in 2012.

It’s a title of success that they are both uncontrolled to retrieve – and they would get better opportunities for giving better performance together. After spending his major part of his career in Barcelona, would Messi actually decide to leave his club for real?

He wouldn’t be the only one who decided to leave the club – Luis Figo and Ronaldo Nazario are among the most high-profile – but it would be a great shock to make a deal and contract with his all-time rival team.

Reaction to Messi Resignation 

Lionel Messi has made such a huge disaster while spreading the news of his resignation from his own team, Barcelona. That also raises the question of which another club would afford him in this situation.

Since long ago, Messi has been the high scorer and achiever in the world of football clubs that have given a shock to four champion league titles, 10 La Liga titles, and six Copa del Rey trophies.

Lindblom is a very outstanding player from the very beginning, who played in the junior leagues of Brynas IF, and later on, due to his promising performance, he earned a spot in the professional team, Swedish Hockey League, of Brynas IF.

After giving years to this field and becoming a trained player, he was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers on May 30, 2017, signing up a three-year contract. 

Lindblom Diagnosed With Bone Cancer- Ewing’s Sarcoma:

Sadly, this didn’t happen for long as Lindblom was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, bone cancer in December 2019, due to which he had to press pause on his ice hockey career to get his chemotherapy done. 

He got his treatment done at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia and got done with it on 2nd July 2020 and was given a three-year extension. He returned to compete in the recent match, on September 3, 2020.   

OSKAR LINDBLOM’S RETURN BOOSTED THE FLYERS TO SEAL THE DEAL ONE MORE TIME:

Lindblom’s return almost after a year proved to be a good sign for the Flyers. Having him back in the team boosted their morale ten times and they performed really well, along with Oskar who played the frontline after a long time. 

As he is one of the strongest players of the team, his performance helped the Flyers to stay in the competition one more time in game 7. Even after being diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma and fighting it for months, he stayed positive and came back with the same power and energy. He has scored a total of 30 goals and overall 27 assists in the 134 games he has played with the Philadelphia Flyers.

LINDBLOM TALKS ABOUT HIM COMING BACK AND BEING ABLE TO PLAY WITH HIS TEAM AGAIN:

Oskar talks about his emotions of him being able to play after months of non-stop treatment and going through so much. In his recent statement, Lindblom said, ‘I’ve been through a lot in the past 6-7 months, and it is fair to say that this has been the toughest period of my life as I had to press pause on everything, my passion for ice hockey too. But I still managed to stay positive during this hard time, and probably this is the reason why I am back today’.

He further added ‘Though I had to say goodbye to ice hockey for some time I was positive that I was going to play again one day. What day and when? That I didn’t know myself but I was certain that it would happen one day. And sure enough, I got the opportunity to play with my team once again because today was the day I was waiting for’.  

Lindblom played his part in game 7 on 17:30 and managed to get a 5-4 double-overtime win because of his brilliant performance, and helped the Flyers get victory over the Islanders, on Saturday.

FLYERS’ CAPTAIN, CLAUDE GIROUX SPEAKS ABOUT LINDBLOM’S PERFORMANCE IN GAME 7:

After Lindblom’s amazing performance in game 7, Flyers’ captain, Claude Giroux shows his gratitude for Oskar for being such a strong person and an amazing player as well.

I mean, after going through so much, he played like nothing even happened or changed’.

He further said ‘His performance in game 7 left me speechless. Even after a long break, he played so well and I feel immense respect for this brave boy’.

COACH OF PHILADELPHIA FLYERS, ALAIN VIGNEAULT EXPLAIN HOW HE GOT LINDBLOM TO PLAY AGAIN:

Alain talks about how he’s been in close contact with the medical staff and other assistant coaches to keep updating him about Lindblom’s health and whether he is physically fit to play or not, Vigneault said that he desperately wanted Lindblom back because the team’s performance was going down and down.

Moreover, he added ‘Due to our weak performance today, I was certain that two of my best players, Sean Couturier and Joel, were not going to play so my strategy at that point was to put another strong player, Lindblom, to the frontline. I told him how he has to play and how I will use him today’s game and he was very excited about it’. 

He also said that, although Lindblom hasn’t played in months, like for 271 days, he still performed way better than he expected him to. Lindblom said ‘I wanted to step in again, but coming back directly in a playoff was a little challenging for me because the main goal is to win in these games’.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS AWARD LINDBLOM WITH A THREE-YEAR, $9 MILLION EXTENSION:

Coach’s decision of putting Lindblom back in the team didn’t make the Flyers second guess his decision because they already had complete faith in their team play. As a token of respect, Philadelphia Flyers awarded Lindblom with a three-year, $9 million extension right after he was discharged from the hospital. They got to him a few weeks after he was done with his chemotherapy and was discharged.

FLYERS’ GOALIE, CARTER HART TALKS ABOUT OSKAR LINDBLOM:

Team’s goalie, Carter Hart said ‘we are beyond proud of this man and we can’t put it into words how much respect we have for this strong boy. He is and always will be the strongest players of Flyers’.

He also said that one of the team member’s said to him that ‘it feels like he was with them all along and never left and today he came back stronger than before even after going through so much and we are proud of him and thankful to him for coming back’.
