Crespo: Messi needed a professional on his side, not his father

Hernan Crespo believes that Lionel Messi could have avoided the crisis he had to go through with Josep Maria Bartomeu and Barcelona, if he had had a professional by his side.

Crespo, who played alongside Messi with Argentina, believes that the presence of the 33-year-old's father, Jorge, as his agent played a part in him not securing a move away from the Camp Nou.

"Here again, with this whole situation, the issue is that... with all due to respect to Jorge Messi, it seems to me that in these circumstances you need a professional by your side," Crespo told TyC Sports.

"It's not the same thing to talk an agent, that is, someone professional, as your father... the agent is not going to take into account the family issue and so on.

"You need to be a professional in these cases."
