With regard to Leo Messi, who has still not signed his new contract, Braida said “Messi is a great champion, Barça is in his heart and I don’t think he will move”. Braida added that the Argentinian “has something magical that makes you win games” and downplayed Neymar’s departure, saying “Barcelona still have a top level squad”.

He praised “the two victories at the start of the season when it seemed that we were not having the best time” and the signing of Dembélé, saying “he is an important signing and will make us better”.

Braida did not want to comment on further new signings, saying only that “market surprises sometimes, it’s difficult to say where we are”.
