Lionel Messi informed Barcelona coaches he was not going to turn up to training today according to Barcelona's newly-appointed sporting director Ramon Planes.

Messi asked the catalans club on Tuesday to leave the club he has been with for 20 seasons, since he was 13 years old.

"Messi informed us that he was not going to show up to training," Planes said during the official unveiling of Portuguese striker Joao Trincao.

"But all exchanges will remain between the two parties (the club and the player) and out of respect we will not communicate on what is said because we are putting all our efforts in this dialogue."

Planes took over his post from Eric Abidal, who was sacked a day after manager Quique Setien was released following the humiliating 8-2 Champions League quarterfinal defeat by Bayern Munich, which left Barca without a trophy for the first time since 2007.
