There is something very, very wrong at Barcelona.
Ben Hayward of Goal.com discussed the problem in a recent article. Messi recently had a few choice words for Barcelona's economic vice president Javier Faus, and it was really the first time he has ever come out and had something like this to say.
Though it is really easy to hear this report and then move on, it shows that something is wrong at Barcelona. The locker room is not what is used to be, and the players are feeling it.
There have been rumors claiming that Messi wants to the leave the club, and Barcelona have yet to silence those claims. There has also been what seems to be a smear campaign against Messi in Spain, and Barcelona have yet to defend their star.
Whether it be president Sandro Rosell or someone else in the Barcelona squad or staff, it is clear that all is not well in Catalonia.
If Barcelona want to win trophies this season, they have to fix things on the pitch. But more importantly, they have to fix whatever is going on behind the scenes and keep their stars happy.
Will Barcelona win trophies this season? It is a safe bet to assume they will. However, at this point Barcelona must address these issues or this season will not end the way it should.
