Messi Dedicated his Goal Celebration
Messi and Suarez were not just two players playing for the same team; their friendship was beyond that. Messi had slammed Bartomeu and Board while writing down an emotional farewell message for Suarez.
Messi had written, “You deserve to depart like who you are; One of the most important players in the history of Club, achieving great things in a group and individually. And not getting kicked out as they did. But, the truth is, at this point, I am not even surprised.”
Furthermore, the duo promised each other that their friendship will remain forever, despite now being the rivals.
But that was not the only promise, and that is that the two friends agreed to celebrate the goals in the same way if they scored in their corresponding league games.
