FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi slams the club for kicking out close friend Luis Suarez in an emotional farewell letter.
Messi, who threatened to leave Barcelona last month and recently hit out at club president Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership, said Suarez was harshly treated.
Messi posted an Instagram post where he has written a heartwarming message to his friend.
“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,” Messi wrote.
“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.
“I wish you all the very best in this new journey of your life. I love you very much. See you soon, friend.”
