- Advertisment -

Lionel Messi has lambasted Barcelona officials once again.

reluctantly announced that he would remain with the only professional club he’s ever known — accusing Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu of lying to him in the process — for the final year of his contract, Messi ripped his employers for their handing of fellow attacker and close friend Luis Suárez, who left for Spanish rival Atletico Madrid this week.” data-reactid=”17″ type=”text”>Exactly two weeks after the world’s greatest player reluctantly announced that he would remain with the only professional club he’s ever known — accusing Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu of lying to him in the process — for the final year of his contract, Messi ripped his employers for their handing of fellow attacker and close friend Luis Suárez, who left for Spanish rival Atletico Madrid this week.

Messi took to Instagram to pay tribute to Suárez and to voice his view that Barca’s treatment of his fellow South American was disrespectful.

“How difficult it is going to be not to continue sharing the day to day with you, both on the field and off. It will be odd to see you in another shirt and much stranger to play against you,” Messi wrote in Spanish.

“You deserved to leave as what you are: one of the most important players in the club’s history, achieving important things both as a group and individually. Not to get kicked out by them like they did. But the truth is that at this point, nothing surprises me.”

Messi concluded the post by wishing Suárez good luck in Madrid. “I love you very much. See you soon friend.”

Suárez was officially presented as a Atletico player hours after Messi’s post. Later on Friday, he participated in his first training session with Diego Simeone’s team:

Suárez is expected to be available to play in his new club’s 2020-21 season opener on Sunday against Granada. Barcelona and Atletico are scheduled to meet in Madrid on Nov. 22.
