Lionel Messi tells Barcelona chiefs to sell Andre Gomes this summer

Lionel Messi tells Barcelona chiefs to sell Andre Gomes this summer

The Brazilians suffered a 3-1 loss to the Spanish champions in an global friendly played at the FNB stadium on Wednesday night.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly informed Barca chiefs to sell Portugal worldwide Andre Gomes this summer.

The match came three days after Barcelona suffered a stunning 5-4 defeat at lowly Levante in their second last La Liga match, robbing them of a chance to complete the season unbeaten.

Earlier, Messi and the rest of the squad drew hundreds of South Africans to OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg at 6 a.m. local time to see Barcelona arrive.

Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes were all on target for the Spanish champions, with Sibusiso Vilakazi netting a consolation goal for the hosts.

However, it took the Catalans manager Ernesto Valverde 65 minutes to finally indicate to Messi to start warming up after continuous calls from the crowd to bring on the 30-year-old. "If it were to happen it would be great for a lot of people", Tau said.

There were nearly wholesome changes for the Barcelona in the second half as they continued to dominate the former Caf Champions League winners and a third goal arrived in the 66 minute.

Valverde made 10 changes during half-time, but Messi was not among those introduced, leading the crowd to repeatedly chant "Messi, Messi, Messi". The goal seemed to have spiked some fear in the Sundowns team as they were making sloppy passes and clearances that could have increased the gap within the first ten minutes. The other goal ... okay, it's Barca, that is the way Barca plays, and that was the school fees we paid.

Valverde said that he was surprised by how amazingly Sundowns played and was also honored to have been part of the Mandela centenary celebrations.
