Barcelona star Lionel Messi has said goodbye to Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, who has transferred from the club to Atletico Madrid.
“I was already getting the idea [that you were leaving Barca], but today I entered the locker room, and the card really fell. How difficult it is going to be not to continue sharing the day to day with you, both on the pitch and outside. We will miss them 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 for what you are: one of the most important players in the club's history, achieving important things—both as a group and individually,” the Argentine striker wrote, in particular, on Instagram.
Luis Suarez has scored 198 goals in 283 appearances for Barcelona.
