The Barca second captain hopes that the Argentine returns to Camp Nou

After being voted the best player in the Clasico, in the midst of the euphoria of both his goal and the victory against Barca's eternal rivals, Sergi Roberto spoke to 'Jijantes' and could not open the door wider for Leo Messi's return to FC Barcelona. On the same day that the PSG fans whistled the Argentinian star at the Parc des Princes, the second captain of the Barça team assured that the Blaugrana dressing room is "waiting for him with open arms".

"Who is not going to be ready for Leo's return? We don't want to talk too much because that's something for the coach, the president and him to decide, but we, the players, are already waiting for him with open arms," said the player from Reus in his conversation with Gerard Romero. He took the opportunity to defend Messi after the criticism he has recently received in Paris: "He is having good seasons. Now they've taken it out on him for the (UCL) elimination, but he's a spectacular player".

Sergi Roberto ended his assessment of Messi's hypothetical return to Barça by making it clear that "we will treat him very well here if he comes". "It leaves a bad taste that a player of this level is treated in this way," he insisted.
