Lionel Messi often criticizes Barcelona’s management. This time he has slammed the Catalan club in a touching farewell message to Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan moved to Atletico Madrid. In a heartwarming post on Instagram, Messi wrote that he is disappointed that Suarez is being ‘kicked out’ of the La Liga club rather than being treated as one of the most valuable players.
Barcelona’s unsuccessful season, with the La Liga title loss, as well as fall in the Champions League in a humiliating 8–2 defeat to Bayern Munich, caused crucial changes. Ronald Koeman became a head coach. The Argentine international himself eyed the exit this summer but was ultimately blocked in his attempts to leave by both the Camp Nou outfit and La Liga.
Suarez’s departure definitely marks the end of an era, and it remains to be seen who replaces the talisman – if Blaugrana have collected enough funds to do so.
