Messi strikes Barcelona again as Suarez leaves
Lionel Messi strikes Barcelona again after the exit of his forward partner and a longtime friend Luiz Suarez as he joins Atletico Madrid.
Messi has a long running feud with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu which intensified after Barcelona were disgraced 8-2 by Bayern in a Champions League quarter final in August.
Messi tried to force his exit from Barcelona but finally accepted that he would have to see out the final year of his contract.
In an emotional farewell on Friday to Luis Suarez, Messi wrote:
“Today I went into the dressing room and the awful truth hit me,”
Messi posted on Instagram, before renewing his criticism of club management.
“You deserved to be sent off as what you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club, And not to be fired in the way they did it.
The truth is that at this point nothing surprises me anymore.
How difficult it is going to be not to continue to share the days with you, both on the pitch and off it”.
Messi added in a post accompanied by seven pictures of the two men together, sometimes with their families.
“We are going to miss you very much. It’s been many years, many cups of mate, lunches, dinners… Many things that I will never forget.
It’s going to be weird to see you with another shirt and much more to face you,
But I wish you all the best in this new challenge.
I love you very much, I love you very much, See you soon, my friend.”
