Lionel Messi Criticizes Barcelona: Luis Suarez Should Not Have Been ‘Pushed Out’

BrandiQ Report

The exit of Luis Suarez from Barcelona seems to be a painful one to Lionel Messi. He has criticized the Barcelona hierarchy following his team-mate’s Luis Suarez’s departure from the club to Atletico Madrid.

La Liga rivals Atletico and Barcelona agreed to a fee of £5.5m for the 33-year-old Uruguanyan International.

On Instagram, Messi wrote:  “You deserved a fitting farewell for the person that you are: one of the best players in the club’s history, having achieved incredible things both individually and collectively. “You didn’t deserve to be pushed out the way they did, but the truth is nothing surprises me anymore.

“I was gradually accepting it, but when I got into the dressing room today, how hard it’s going to be to no longer have you around in the day-to-day on and off the pitch really dawned on me.

“We’re going to miss you so much. It’s been so many years, so many mates (a tea-like drink), lunches, dinners… There are so many things that will never be forgotten after being together every day.

“It will be strange to see you in another kit and even more so to play against you…

“I wish you all the best for your new challenge. Sending love to you and your family. See you soon, mate.”

Messi and Suarez

Suarez couldn’t fight back tears at a press conference on Thursday when he said goodbye to Barcelona and to a former teammate, suggesting that he felt “proud” of the attacking partnership and friendship he cultivated with Messi during his six-year stay in Catalonia.

Messi almost left Nou Camp in the transfer window before changing his mind to end his contract.
