Lionel Messi is accusing Barcelona of completely disrespecting former teammate, Luis Suarez, following the Uruguayans abrupt transfer to Atletico Madrid.
This is not the first time that Messi has publicly expressed his frustrations with Barcelona in recent weeks. The club have reportedly broken several promises to their greatest ever player and have continued to lead the club in the wrong direction.
Since the arrival of new manager, Ronald Koeman, things have seemed to go from bad to worse for Barcelona.
His arrival has been accompanied by the departure of several highly regarded senior players. Such players include Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic and now, Luis Suarez.
Luis Suarez is now officially an Atelico player, and Messi, much to his frustration, is still a part of Barcelona’s plans. This is despite his best efforts to enforce a departure before the start of the current season.
Suarez is with no doubt a legend at Barcelona. The striker is the clubs third highest ever goal scorer with 198 goals and has shared some incredible moments with the Catalan outfit. He was one piece of the famous ‘MSN’ forward line, which included Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr, and multiple trophies including the 2015 UEFA Champions League.
However, Messi is not happy with the way that Barcelona has approached the departure of one of their greatest ever members.
Messi’s heartfelt Instagram post read:
“Had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned don 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 year together, many mates, 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.”
“You did not deserve for them to throw you out as they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”
