• New York Times- Tariq Panja

Lionel Messi is still angry with Barcelona. He is still frustrated with Barcelona. But, in a sudden and dramatic reversal, he said Friday that he is not prepared to go to war with Barcelona and, so, will stay after all.

In a decision confirmed by the club via Twitter, Messi withdrew a letter announcing his intention to leave Barcelona and will stay with the soccer club that he has called home for his entire professional career.
