Messi is not welcome to compete in the Olympics, according to Barcelona FC.

Messi’s name was released at a press conference for the Argentine national team to compete, and Barcelona team captain Carles Puyol (Carles Puyol) attempted to stop Messi from going to the Beijing Olympics with the national squad.

We enjoy the magic of the Olympic Games every two years. Athletes demonstrate superhuman levels of physical, mental, and willpower as we spectators cheer them on from the sidelines. We are given their names and biographies, but how much do we know about this extraordinary occurrence? Are you curious? Here are a few fantastic and motivating Olympic facts for children (and adults!).

Olympics Champions League of UEFA

The fact that the UEFA Champions League qualifiers will take place on the same day as the Olympics is one of the critical reasons Barcelona does not want Argentina to compete. He will field as many young players as possible to preserve an entire state in the European Championship.

According to FIFA rules, Messi might face a suspension during the Olympic Games, which provides that all players under the age of 23 must be released to their national teams if they must compete. On the other hand, Puyol is adamant that Messi is an important player. It’s a pivotal time for the Barcelona club. It is a catastrophe if the guys aren’t on the team’s roster.

At the squad’s preseason training camp on Thursday, Puyol stated, “We have a great team, but Messi is a crucial player for us, one of the best players in the world.” We can’t enter this matter because we do not influence it. Let’s hope it gets resolved, and he stays by our side.

The Argentine has replaced Ronaldo as the Spanish club’s main star due to his incredible performance after Ronaldo departed Barcelona FC for AC Milan in Italy. On the other side, the Brazilians have greatly aided Barcelona’s efforts despite his inability to perform at his peak over the past two seasons owing to injuries. Puyol acknowledged that Ronaldinho would decline as the Catalan team’s top performer.

The Argentine Football Association and Barcelona Football Club have come to a tight agreement, according to Tesiki Begiristan, director of sports at the club; as Qu Xu noted in an interview: “Where are we? We will free Messi to compete in the Olympics after he plays in the first round of the UEFA Champions League (third-round qualifier). We recognize that coming to this agreement is the best course of action. We should be able to approach the players if we receive positive results, well, and without being overconfident in our search.

The terms and conditions of this transaction have yet to be accepted by the Argentine Football Association, but they can undoubtedly avoid future issues; they will wait to see how it plays out.

To prevent their Brazilian players Rafinha and Diego from competing in the Beijing Football Championship, several European teams, namely Bremen and Schalke, have petitioned the Sports Arbitration Court, the governing body of sports. As a result, it will determine whether the athletes compete in the Olympics in August.
