"Not only did you not cry [when Messi left Barca], but you told mediocre Joan Laporta that if he wanted to build a winning team, he had to sell Leo Messi. The same Messi who helped you at Zaragoza when nobody liked you as a teammate," he added.
Gerard Pique has recently said that he 'cried inside' when he saw Leo Messi leave Barcelona and that it 'would've been nice if Leo had stayed'.
Pique reportedly was the key person behind Messi's unexpected Barcelona exit. The 35-year-old reportedly convinced Joan Laporta that the team should start the rebuild without Leo, also noting that the Argentine's departure would help solve the club's financial crisis.
