Lionel Messi is a great legend in the world of football. However, that does not mean that the legends of Barcelona and Argentina are completely invulnerable at club level. That’s even more true at a time when Messi just became number one at Barca 13 years ago.
At that time, Barca recruited Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Inter Milan. The appearance of the Swedish star made Messi feel disparate about his position at Barca.
According to Sebastian Fest and Alex Juillard, the authors of the book “The Messi Mystery”, The owner of 7 Golden Ball titles was surprised by the unexpected appearance of Ibrahimovic. The star was born in 1987, so he went to Pep Guardiola and said: “I can see that I am no longer important to the team, so…”
The book also reveals that Messi sent the message to Pep on the team bus. El Pulga also experienced a difficult start to the 2009/10 season and he was skeptical about losing his starting position at Barca at that time.
The end result is visible to everyone. Messi continues to stay at the Nou Camp and continues to write history pages for the football world. After a season at Barca, Ibra quickly wrapped up and left.
