Here’s how Lionel Messi’s Barcelona teammates bid him goodbye

Lionel Messi has now officially left Barcelona as the player and the club couldn’t sign a new contract extension due to La Liga’s financial restrictions. As Lionel Messi is leaving his boyhood club, many of his teammates over the years have bid him goodbye.

Here’s how Lionel Messo’s Barcelona teammates bid him goodbye:

Sergio Busquets

“Thank you for what you have done for the club and for those who have accompanied you in these years,” Busquets posted.

“You arrived here as a child and you’re leaving as the best player in history. You have made this club grow to the height it deserves and I can always say I played and shared many moments with you, I will miss you so much.”

Ansu Fati

“All the players who come to La Masia dream of being able to play with you, I feel fortunate to have achieved that,” Fati posted on Instagram.

“I wanted to thank you for these two years, for your gestures of affection towards me and for everything I learned, my family and I will always be eternally grateful.”


“Thank you for everything, it was a great honour to have met you and played by your side, I’m very grateful for the way you treated me and my family during that time,” Coutinho detailed.

“I wish you much success in your future.”

Xavi Hernandez

“As a Cule, teammate and friendly, I can only thank you for everything you have given us during these years, whatever you do I wish you the best.”

Gerard Deulofeu

“What a pleasure it was to share moments at the best club in the world with the best player in history, I have so much admiration and respect for you, we can only thank you for all the magic you have given us and you will continue to give us every week on the pitch.”

Riqui Puig

“I have been able to live the childhood dream of any child whose passion is football, to be able to share a dressing room and team with the best player in the world, Puig posted on Instagram.

“Living, learning and competing with him is the best thing that has happened to me in these last two years, thank you Leo.”

Miralem Pjanic

“Leo it was a pleasure meeting you, you’re a special person and I wish you all the best for you with your family in the future.”

Gerard Pique

“Nothing will ever be the same again, neither the Camp Nou, nor the city of Barcelona nor ourselves. After more than 20 years at the club, you will stop wearing the Barcelona shirt, the reality, sometimes, is very hard,” Pique declared.

“We met in 2000, we were 13 years old and had a career ahead of us, what a career. If we had designed it at the time it would have been impossible to write it better.

“Now you are leaving, but I know that one day you will come back.”

Pedro Rodriguez

“Thank you so much, Leo, for everything you have given the club and the FC Barcelona youth players,” he posted.

“You have been an example to everyone, I feel fortunate to have played by your side and shared so many good moments. I wish you the best, to you and your family, good luck and success in your new stage.”
