It has been reported that Lionel Messi is staying upbeat after Barcelona’s shock defeat at home to Valencia.
The Argentine international spoke to fans yesterday at a sponsors’ function.
“I’m pleased because I’ve played several consecutive games. Psychologically I’m also fine. It’s true that I had a bad patch but now I’m over it,” said Messi.
Messi also spoke about the differences between Tito Vilanova and Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino as managers of Barcelona: “Every manager has their own ideas. Tito was much more similar to Pep, as they had worked together for many years. ‘El Tata’ is different. You can see the differences.”
