Messi: We don’t need to depend on one
Barcelona star Lionel Messi believes that his side are good enough and do not have to rely on him for goals.
Messi did not start in Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao but came off the bench to set up Munir El Haddadi’s equaliser.
Despite helping his side secure a crucial point, Lionel Messi believes the squad is strong enough to get results without him.
“We have the squad and the players to be a great team, to be a strong team and not depend on anyone. This is Barca. We have enough players, we don’t need to depend on one. These results have been a shame, but we have to stay calm because it’s a long season,” said Messi in an interview with BeIn Sports.
The draw marked the end of a poor week for Barca, who drew with Girona last week before being beaten by bottom table side Leganes.
