Lionel Messi Contract Not Yet Renewed

Tom Anagnost is the head women’s soccer coach at Mississippi State University. Outside of work, Tom Anagnost follows one of his favorite soccer players, Lionel Messi.

Messi is known for playing on the FC Barcelona soccer team. He initially joined the team in 2004, and has accomplished many feats during this time. Some of the highlights of his career include winning awards from 2009 to 2012 as the best soccer player in the world.

Messi recently was in the news because he has not yet signed a new contract with his current team FC Barcelona. His contract is due to expire in the summer of 2018, and there has been no recent talk about creating an extension. Former teammate David Villa firmly believes that Messi will stay on. He stated that the team and Messi are a perfect match, and it is only a matter of time before the contract is renewed.
