The friendship between Messi and Luis Suárez will remain at a distance: from Barcelona to Madrid
Finally Luis Suárez packed the suitcases and said goodbye to Barcelona to be presented at Atlético Madrid. The Uruguayan had one year remaining in the Catalan team but Ronald Koeman and the leadership considered him expendable and negotiated with the Colchonero to get rid of him. After his emotional goodbye at a conference , it was Lionel Messi who captured the attention with a heartfelt message posted on social networks . In it he made it clear that he will miss him and took the opportunity to hit the culé leadership. And now his former partner and eternal friend answered him.
“Thank you friend for your words but more thanks for being who you are, for what you were from the first day with me and my family,” began the message the 33-year-old Uruguayan who has already placed himself under the orders of Diego Simeone to face the season with the white shirt. The line that made the most noise was when he made an elevation shot to the Barça board of directors: “Don't forget what I told you 'I continued enjoying and showing that you are the one for something' and that 2, 3 or 4 do not cloud it. giant that you are for the club and for the world of football ” .
Messi, who resigned himself to staying at least until mid-2021 in Barcelona after not having been able to break their bond (he failed to execute the clause that allowed him to leave and no club paid out the 700 million euros corresponding to his termination) was blunt: ” It will be strange to see you with another shirt and much more to face you. You deserved to be fired for what you are: one of the most important players in the club's history, achieving important things both as a group and individually. And not to get kicked out like they did. But the truth is that at this point nothing surprises me ”.

Leo's message was not the only one that went viral on the networks in the last hours since his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, intimate of Sofía Balbi (Suárez's partner) at the same time dedicated words to him from his heart outside the axis of the contractual controversy linked to football. And the other one who raised his voice was the Brazilian Neymar , who knew how to be an attacking buddy of the Argentine and Uruguayan before leaving for Paris Saint Germain: “Incredible how they do things . “
Messi and Suárez will experience strange sensations when they meet on a playing field for the first time with the shirts of different clubs after having shared so much time in Barcelona (they had already done it at the national team level with Argentina and Uruguay). Atlético Madrid will host Barça for date 10 of the Spanish League on the weekend of Sunday, November 22 .
Suarez's full answer:
“Thank you FRIEND for your words but MORE THANKS for being who you are, for what you were from the first day with me and my family. I will always be grateful to the HUMAN @leomessi , the FUNNY AND THE SENTIMENTAL, because everyone knows the player. Don't forget what I told you “I continued enjoying and showing that you are ONE for a reason” and that 2,3 or 4 do not cloud how GIANT you are for the club and for the world of football. I love you very much friend and we are going to MISS you at 5 ❤️❤️❤️ ”.
