Lionel Messi has accused Barcelona vice-president Javier Faus of being a businessman who “knows nothing about football”.

Faus had said that he didn’t see a reason why Barcelona should update Messi’s contract every six months. This happened at a time when it appeared the board was unhappy with Messi’s dad and it attempt to get more money out of them.

“Mr. Faus is someone who knows nothing about football, and wants to run Barca like it was a business, which it is not,” Messi said. “Barca is the best team in the world, and deserves to be represented by the best directors. And I remind him that neither I nor anyone from my camp have asked for a new contract — and he knows that well.”
