Talk about Loyalty.
FC Barcelona have announced that superstar striker Lionel Messi has agreed to a new contract that will keep him at the Catalan club for the next four years.
It was always hard to imagine the club without their talisman. And it would probably have come as a shock if he decided to leave the team he has been with since the young age of 13.
Hopefully, he will help them get back to winning ways. Their only trophy last campaign was the Spanish domestic cup. They were beaten to the La Liga title by old rivals Real Madrid who, under Zinedine Zidane, also managed to outplay Juventus and win the European Champions League cup.
It has been a busy few weeks for Messi. He married his longtime sweetheart and mother of his child just last week with a ceremony back at his home town of Rosario, Argentina.
