Camp Nou to be renamed after Lionel Messi

Barcelona could rename their iconic Camp Nou stadium in the future after club hero Lionel Messi, with presidential candidate Emili Rousard pledging to hold a vote on the matter if he wins the highly awaited January election.

Scoring an impressive 640 goals and counting Messi has long been Barcelona’s greatest player ever. He won 10 titles in the La Liga, six Copa del Rey, four Champions Leagues, and was also awarded the Ballon d’Or six times on record-breaking occasions.

It will be a fitting and enduring tribute to Messi, who when he left home in Argentina at the age of only 13, joined Barça’s youth ranks and Rousard is keen to create momentum ahead of the elections.

“We will hold a referendum to change the name of the stadium to ‘Camp Nou – Leo Messi’,” the candidate is quoted as saying by Marca.
