I Can’t Believe Messi Is Leaving Barca- Michael Essien

Like most football fans, Michael Essien perhaps thought it was an April Fool joke when he heard Lionel Messi was leaving Barcelona.

Messi, who has been playing for Barca for 17 years, is by far regarded as the Catalan club’s all time best player.

The world literally came to a standstill when Barca revealed that Messi will not be playing for the club in the forthcoming season.

Reacting to the shocking news, former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien said he can’t believe what is happening at Barcelona.

According to the Ghanaian international, he is praying Messi stays as he symbolizes the club.

“I am not a @FCBarcelona fan but I still can’t believe Leo will leave Barca, Leo is Barca and Barca is Leo. I hope there will be a u-turn somehow,” he wrote on Twitter.
