Estudiantes supremo Veron convinced Messi remains unhappy at Barcelona

Estudiantes supremo Juan Veron believes Lionel Messi remains unhappy at Barcelona.

The former Lazio star has watched on from afar as Messi has attempted to leave Barca this year.

"I see him with a lot of discomfort playing in a team in transition," Veron told Ole.

"In all of these years at Barcelona he was a key player but now they're in transition, they have a lot of spare parts and are trying to find an identity.

"It seems clear to me that, to a certain extent, the club haven't been able to accompany Leo [with the right teammates], especially in their formation and as a team. This, somehow, has gone against him. He's a player who has always tried to be competitive and stay at the very top."
