Messi wants to return to Barcelona, says his father/agent

Lionel Messi, who last week played his last game for Paris St Germain, is open to making a return to LaLiga side Barcelona, the Argentine forward's father said on Monday.

Barça were forced to let their talisman leave in 2021 because his high wages coupled with strict LaLiga financial rules could have jeopardized the club's future.

Messi, who joined Barcelona's youth set-up aged 13 and went on to become the club's all-time top scorer and appearance maker with 672 goals in 778 games in all competitions, moved to PSG as a free agent on a two-year contract.

Diego Simeone tells how many times a player needs to have sex a month to be on his team

Many people see Diego Simeone as a villain: Dressed in black, with a resting tough guy face and always displaying tactics ready to ruin a night of "good football." 

El Cholo, however, can be fun, playful and a little bit naughty.

Proof of this statement is his latest interview with the Spanish radio show "El Partidazo de COPE," where he spoke about different topics, including sex. Specifically about how much sex he is having and how much sex his players need to have to be part of his team.

Of course, all in a joking tone.
