Lionel Messi ended his season. He asked Barcelona for a license, not to play the last date against Eibar in an action that would be unthinkable for any other footballer, but that in his case makes a lot of sense and that's how the club understood it, which didn't oppose his request and reported that he didn't he trained this Friday and will not be on the last day, with permission in addition to coach Ronald Koeman.
