Recalling what Lionel Messi said when Barcelona won the 2019 La Liga

La Liga is one of the most competitive football leagues in the world. Clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and many more compete in the league for the title. If we look since 2000, Barcelona has lifted the title 11 times, which is the most by any team. But if we look at the past five seasons, they have won only once, which came under Xavi’s management in 2022–23. Looking at their performances, we are here to reflect on what Lionel Messi said.

When Barcelona won the 2019 La Liga title, here is what Lionel Messi said:

“I think we have to give value to the La Liga we have won. We don’t give it the value it deserves, but in a few years we will realize.”

Here is the complete statement:

“I think we have to give value to the La Liga we have won. 8th in 11 years. Maybe today we don’t give it the value it deserves, but in a few years, we will realize how difficult it was.”

After the 2019 season, Barcelona has won only one title, which came during 2022–23. Now, Barcelona fans have realized how difficult it is to win the La Liga title. Since the exit of Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona, they have struggled.

Similarly, in the ongoing season, Messi’s presence is felt at the utmost level, as they have failed to score on numerous occasions. Their defense has been good, and midfielders have been at the best level, but their striking and forward possession have been below average. Even Barcelona had approached him for a loan deal for Messi. Can Barcelona win the 2024-24 La Liga title? Only time will let us know. Till then, let’s look at Barcelona’s La Liga performance since 2000.
