LaLiga return: Lionel Messi speaks on Champions League

Lionel Messi returned to training with Barcelona last week after two months in lockdown. As talks of resuming LaLiga are at an advanced stage, there has been no clarification on the same about the Champions League. During an interview with Sport, Messi was quizzed about the possibility of a Champions League return in August.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner claimed that the defending LaLiga champions have a great squad that is capable of winning several titles. However, he emphasised that they cannot win the Champions League with their playing style this season. But Lionel Messi's comments are in stark contrast to Barcelona coach Quique Setien's words, who had earlier claimed that his side could win the Champions League this season.
