Lionel Messi’s desire to leave FC Barcelona has been the story rocking the sports world for a week, only to fizzle out when Messi announced he would honor his contract. Is he doing so begrudgingly, as he implied Friday, or was this his plan all along? This burning question leads to a rather loud debate on ESPN, where Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop and Dan Thomas can’t believe Don Hutchison thinks staying at Barca is what Messi wanted from the start. Burley sounds off at multiple points during the discussion about what he sees as a massive betrayal by Barcelona against the greatest player in the club’s history.
