Champions League: Messi begs Neymar to return

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, begged Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar to return to Camp Nou after their disappointing 4-0 defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg encounter in May this year.

The 32-year-old informed the Brazilian international that only together can both of them win the Champions League trophy.

Messi, who played alongside Neymar at Barcelona, also told the 27-year-old that he wants him back at the Catalan club, because he will leave the La Liga champions in two years’ time.

According to France Football, Messi sent a WhatsApp to Neymar that read: “Only together can we win the Champions League.
