Amakhosi’s reaction to a random tweet about the Barcelona Ballon d’Or winner’s departure sparked a lot of reaction from her followers
Kaizer Chiefs fans have urged the Premier Soccer League to forget interest in Lionel Messi and sign Sipho Mbule from SuperSport United instead.
The Chiefs responded with the eye emoji to the question “Messi is not extending his contract for Barcelona, which team do you think / hope he will join?” posed on Twitter and it’s the club’s reaction that sparked a lot of engagement on social media.
Some fans responded by pressuring Amakhosi to sign Mbule, who has been linked with a move to Naturena.
The Argentine left Camp Nou after the Catalan club failed to agree on a new contract with their record scorer.
Six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has been a free agent since July 1st after his contract expired on June 30th.
He was expected to sign a new five-year deal but with a 50% pay cut, an offer that Barcelona failed to meet, citing financial and structural obstacles as reasons for not offering the new deal.
The multiple La Liga and Champions League winner has spent his entire career with the Catalan club, where he has scored 672 goals in 778 games since his debut 18 years ago.
