Lionel Messi’s emotional tribute to his friend and former teammate Luis Suarez is not in the best taste, to say the least, following the 33-year-old's move to Atletico Madrid.
And he has slammed Barcelona for the way they have treated the Uruguayan after it was made clear he was no longer a part of the club's plans.
The Argentinean superstar took to Instagram on Friday to share his thoughts on the situation.
“I had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned on me,” Messi wrote. “Its going to be so difficult to not continue to share every day with you both on and off the pitches and away from them.
“We're going to miss you so much. We spent many years together, drank many mates, had 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.
