Lionel Messi has been “duped and ignored” by Barcelona and still must be granted his wish to leave, according to former Rayo Vallecano manager Paco Jemez.

Messi, a six-time Ballon d’Or winner, announced on September 4 that he would stay at the Camp Nou after Barcelona made it “impossible” for him to leave with their demands.

Barça disputed that the 33-year-old could still make an option in his contract that would have allowed him to leave for free, meaning any suitor had to pay his € 700 million buyout clause or negotiate a fee.

Now he will stay in Catalonia for at least one more season, but Jemez has suggested it could have worked better if the Argentine international had moved on.

“It is great news that Messi remains in Spanish football and Barça will think the same, but I would not be so happy because Messi has not felt comfortable,” he said on the YouTube channel Idolos.

“Messi has stayed because they have forced him.

“If what he said is true, Messi has been misled and ignored. That is not a good thing. If I were the president of Barça, I would do everything possible for Messi to leave. Because if not, this situation will explode ”.

Jemez has sympathy for newly appointed Barça manager Ronald Koeman, insisting the problem won’t go away now that Messi has agreed to stay.

“Letting go of Messi is also very difficult. I understand it too. What I have clear, at least as a coach, is that I would not like Messi to be unhappy, “he said.

“Koeman has a significant ‘dead man’. It often happens to us coaches, coming across a problem that other people have generated. You get there and it turns out that the one who has to fix it is you.

“The problem will not be solved just because Messi stays at Barcelona. There comes a time when there is so much animosity that it is practically impossible to reorient things.
