Lionel Messi has requested Frank Rikjaard as the next Barcelona manager…
Barcelona are in a state of unrest at the moment, and things only appear to be getting worse, according to Spanish publication Sport.
Current boss Luis Enrique is apparently finished at the Nou Camp, with his poor relationship with the club’s talismanic forward Lionel Messi the main cause.
The Argentine star has apparently requested a new manager be brought in, and with the Catalan giants wanting to keep their star man happy, he is likely to get his wish.
Messi’s relationship with Enrique has disintegrated completely over the past week, and after skipping training and being unnecessarily rested, it seems like things have finally come to a head.
He has allegedly asked that Frank Rijkaard be brought in to replace Enrique; the Dutchman known to have a good relationship with the 27-year-old having previously managed Barcelona between 2003 and 2008.
It seems only a matter of time before the current boss is given the heave-ho, but with the club facing a two window transfer ban, is now the best time to be further unsettling things?
