Ronald Koeman wants to get Lionel Messi to stay at FC Barcelona for next season and that is why he gives him all kinds of luxuries and priorities. Although Lionel Messi surprises everyone with his great plays, this time Ronald Koeman was surprised by an attitude that Messi had during the FC Barcelona match against Osasuna.
FC Barcelona's match against Osasuna was very emotional for everyone as it was the first match after Diego Maradona's death. During the minutes before starting, Lionel Messi could be seen very hurt by the death of Maradona but at all times he tried to pay him a great tribute.
Lionel Messi must have thought before the game that the best way to pay tribute to him was by scoring a goal and he did. After converting one of the four FC Barcelona goals, Lionel Messi donned the Newells Old Boys shirt. This shirt was very significant since Maradona played for the same club that Lionel Messi is a fan of and was trained as a player.
Ronald Koeman said he was surprised by Lionel Messi's tribute to Diego Maradona and that it seemed like a great idea. What surprised and complimented Koeman the most was that Lionel Messi had thought that beforehand in case he scored a goal. Lionel Messi once again demonstrated how great he is, not only as a player but as a person.
