Barcelona striker Luis Suarez signed for Atletico Madrid earlier this week and his departure seems to have disappointed the Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.
The Barcelona attacker has taken to Instagram to share a message for his friend and former teammate Luis Suarez.
Messi expressed his disappointment over Suarez’s treatment at the club and he wrote that the Uruguayan striker is one of the most important players in Barcelona’s history and he deserved a far greater send-off.
His post read: “I had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned on me. It’s going to be so difficult to not continue to share every day with you both on the pitches and away from them.
“We’re going to miss you so much. We spent many years together, many lunches and many dinners. So many things we will never forget, all the time we spent together.
“It will be strange to see you in another shirt and much more to come up against you on the pitch. You deserved a farewell that fit with who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club. Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level. You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”
Meanwhile former Barcelona player Neymar also responded to the post on social media and he aimed a sly dig at the Barcelona hierarchy as well.
He wrote: “Incredible how they do things”
