A statue of Messi at Camp Nou? We'll think about it', says Rosell

Sandro Rosell says he likes the idea of building a statue of Barcelona icon Lionel Messi at a proposed new Camp Nou stadium and claims he and the Blaugrana board will consider the initiative.

The Barca president and three other members of the board held a press conference on Monday to unveil plans for a spectacular new stadium, which would be built at a cost of €600 million on the current Camp Nou site and will be put to a referendum vote for socios in early April.

The story is too old to be commented.

Building a 600 Million Stadium in a country with 30% Unemployment. and they blamed Real for payying 90 for Bale because it was unethical. Nou Camp is a legendary Stadium and Barca should just stay there.

Well Ronaldo made a museum in honour of himself, so I think it's only fair Messi gets a statue. Maybe he should just pay for it himself.
