Barca’s boss confident of success after Messi’s departure

…as the club begins life without talisman with 3-0 thumping of Juventus

Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman has issued a confident message to fans ahead of their 2021/22 La Liga campaign.

The Dutch boss spoke to fans at the Estadi Johan Cruyff ahead of their 3-0 Joan Gamper Trophy win over Juventus.

Koeman spoke about the high profile exit of talismanic captain, Lionel Messi, but he assured supporters of his confidence of a strong season to come in the months ahead.

“With the squad we have, the signings we’ve made and the young players coming through, they are always the future of this great club.”

Memphis Depay has continued his eye-catching start to life as a Barcelona player, with a vital opening goal against Juventus.

The Dutch star finally completed his much anticipated free transfer move to Camp Nou, following his exit from Lyon earlier this summer.

He netted his first club goal from the penalty spot in the 3-1 friendly win over Girona last month, before netting a spectacular individual finish against VfB Stuttgart.

Messi’s departure will dominate news surrounding the club in the coming weeks with a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, appearing to be a growing possibility.

The Parisians could offer the 34-year-old striker a bumper salary package alongside a two or three-year contract in the French capital.
