Lionel Messi already wasn’t happy at Barcelona, so the club decided to force his best friend and partner in crime into a transfer.
OK, that’s not exactly how things happened. But the Argentine is certainly furious following the exit of Luis Suárez.
The Uruguayan has completed his move to Atlético Madrid and Messi posted a furious goodbye message on Instagram on Friday:
“I was already getting the idea but today I entered the locker room and the penny dropped. It’s going to be so difficult not sharing every day with you, both on the pitch and off it. You will be missed. There were many years, friends, lunches, dinners. Every day together will never be forgotten.
“It will be strange to see you wearing another shirt and even stranger to play against you. You deserved to be celebrated 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 be kicked out like they’ve done. But the truth is that nothing surprises me anymore.
“I wish you all the best in this new challenge. I love you very much. See you soon, friend.”
We all know that Messi wanted to leave Barcelona this summer and, when you see him say things like this, it’s hard to see him staying after his contract expires at the end of the season.
