La Liga: Barca aiming to win everything – Messi
Lionel Messi is targeting a clean sweep of trophies under new Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde next season.
Barca won nine trophies of a possible 13 in three seasons under Luis Enrique but missed out on both La Liga and the Champions League this year.
Former Athletic Bilbao boss Valverde begins his quest for success with the Super Cup against league winners Real Madrid in August, and Messi said, “Our objective at the beginning of the season was to win everything.
“We’ll try again next season. The objective is to get back to winning everything.”
Messi was speaking at the launch of the Leo Messi Experience, a theme park in Nanjing, China, that opens in 2019.
His promotional commitments mean he has not yet had a chance to meet Valverde, but he said, “I don’t know the new Barca coach personally, but we’ll meet in the next few days.” Punch
