Lionel Messi has hit another shot at the Barcelona board in his social media post. he bid an emotional farewell message to his teammate, Luis Suarez after the striker left the club to join Athletico Madrid. Messi caught himself in a transfer saga with Barca this summer as he tried to leave the club for free. The Argentinian international waved the decision of his exit so as to avoid a huge legal fight with the club who disputed the clause.
Luis Suarez was sent off the club by new manager Ronald Koeman despite having one year in his current contract. Koeman made it clear to Suarez that he is no longer needed in the club. He joined Athletico Madrid officially on Thursday and was very emotional at his press conference.
In his conference speech, he said, “I expected it because it had been said already before the coach told me but I can accept it. Players sometimes need a change. The club needed a change and in this case, the coach didn’t want me.”
According to Givemesport, Lionel Messi was not happy with the way Suarez left the club, it’s still obvious that he is still not happy at Suarez’s exit. Messi posted on his Instagram account and his post shows his anger.

He wrote, I was already getting the idea but today I entered the locker and the card fell. How difficult it will be not to continue sharing the day to day with you. Both on the pitch and outside. “We will miss you so much. It was many years, many mates, lunches, dinners. “Many things that will never be forgotten, every day together.
“It will be strange to see you with another shirt and much more to face you. You deserved to be fired as what you are: one of the most important players in the club’s history, achieving important things both as a group and individually. And not to get kicked out as they did. But the truth is that at this point nothing surprises me.

Ya me venía haciendo la idea pero hoy entré al vestuario y me cayó la ficha de verdad. Que difícil va a ser no seguir compartiendo el día a día con vos, tanto en las canchas como afuera. Los vamos a extrañar muchísimo. Fueron muchos años, muchos mates, comidas, cenas… Muchas cosas que nunca se van a olvidar, todos los días juntos. Va a ser raro verte con otra camiseta y mucho más enfrentarte. Te merecías que te despidan como lo que sos: uno de los jugadores más importantes de la historia del club, consiguiendo cosas importantes tanto en lo grupal como individualmente. Y no que te echen como lo hicieron. Pero la verdad que a esta altura ya no me sorprende nada. Te deseo todo lo mejor en este nuevo desafío. Te quiero mucho, los quiero mucho. Hasta pronto, amigo.
“I wish you all the best in this new challenge. I love you very much, I love you very much. See you soon friend.”
Barcelona is currently in a mess and their star player is starting the season with a grudge in his heart. Facing Athletico Madrid is one thing fans are waiting for and how he will face Messi in the match.
