Xavi says Barcelona ‘haven’t taken advantage’ of Messi enough as speculation rages around ‘sad’ stars.

An Argentine icon may yet commit to a new contract at Camp Nou, but a former teammate admits he has looked frustrated at times this season.

Lionel Messi has helped Barcelona to an enviable collection of major honors down the years. However, Xavi still claims that those at Camp “haven’t taken advantage of him enough” and should have even more trophies to their name.

At 33 years of age, a six-time Ballon d’Or winner is in the process of weighing up his options and whether another challenge should be sought outside of Catalunya before the day comes to hang up his boots.

Xavi admits that his former teammate has looked “sad” at times this season, having already made one push for the exits. Still, he remains hopeful that the services of a talismanic presence can be retained as more silverware is chased down.

What has been said?

Ex-Barca captain Xavi has told TV3: “You have to make sure that Leo is happy, because with a happy and content Leo you have a better chance to win titles. 

“Many times he has given me the impression that Leo has not been happy on the field, that he has been sad and it makes me sad as a cule that we have not taken advantage of him enough in recent years. 

“We had the best footballer in the world and in history and we haven’t taken advantage of him enough.”
