‘Messi covers up problems at Barcelona’ – La Liga giants will always be ‘great’, says misfit Malcom

The Brazilian forward struggled to make an impact during his time at Camp Nou, but he has no regrets or concerns over the club’s immediate future

Lionel Messi’s quality does cover up problems at Barcelona, admits Malcom, but he is far from the only superstar at Camp Nou helping to ensure that the club remains “great” in times of trouble.

The Liga giants are enduring a testing period at present, with the 2019-20 campaign not playing out as planned.
