“As I said about the Olympic Games, the whole Messi affair caught me just in the days when I was almost completely disconnected,” explained the Asturian double world champion in an interview with the EFE Agency on the occasion of the announcement of the expansion of its clothing and accessories brand Kimoa in the United States, through its agreement with SimplyEV.
“I was getting the news and one day it seemed that he was leaving; the next, that he was staying. In the end when he left he did not know if it was true or not, until everything was confirmed,” explained Alonso, 40, that this season he returned to the premier class with the team with which he won his two titles (2005 and 2006, then Renault).
“But hey, for the Spanish League it is not good to lose the big names and the great players; but that was the moment and that was what everyone decided. Welcome and we will enjoy it in another country, where it reaches us in the summaries “He told Efe Alonso about Messi.
