Tata has admitted Messi influenced his appointment. Messi was asked about Neymar before they signed him. He is basically Barcelona's pseudo Sporting director and president. On the pitch he dictates how Barcelona play. I am still speechless at the power he wields. He shouted on Villa and Mascherano told Villa not to talk back. Can anyone think of any player that has been held in such high esteem by a club in history? I can't. Di Stefano?

Zidane in French NT and Raúl in his just past prime (2003-2005) at Madrid comes to mind.

I am already looking forward to his move to Milan Proud

Di Stefano was much more than that from what I've heard. Zidane deservers a shot, as well as Raul.

Zidane never held this kind of power. He didn't force managers out and hire new ones. His influence on the pitch, but off it nowhere near.

Yes. Pep could not control him. It's even in his autobiography of how Messi went renegade and stopped running and Pep had to convince him.

Why are you making stuff up?
Pep doesn't even have an autobiagrophy.

On topic, I dislike that Messi recommended Tata, but he surely didn't force him.

So recommend someone = force them to sign him?

And bro, you must be joking when you said that you have never seen anyone shout at a teammate the way messi did, specially seeing as you are a man utd fan and had keane as a captain..


Oh and pep did leave bcoz of Messi. If he left for someone then it was because of Rosell...

Makes perfect sense. Make him rot in your shadow playing as a support player so he doesn't infringe on your subscription to the yearly Ballon Messi d'Or award.

His intense bitterness and resentment over Barca stuffing Man U twice in CL finals is funny though.

lol you think no other players get a say in how their club is run? adorable...

top players who have a huge impact on their club will always be brought in on the big decisions, it's like that in every sport and every team, makes even more sense with a generational talent like messi who you obviously want to keep happy... sure it may be getting into his head, but until it significantly interferes with the team there's no reason it should be any different
