After Lionel Messi expressed his displeasure at the departure of his colleague Luis Suarez to Atlético de Madrid, the Spanish club president Enrique Cerezo played on the emotions of the “flea.” He said he was ready to join him to join his friend.
“Goal” sports website quoted Cerezo as saying: “Messi is welcome to join Suarez at Atletico Madrid if he still wants to play alongside him.”
He continued, “If Messi wants to play with Luis Suarez, then he is welcome. Everything is possible if the desire is present.”
And last week, Atletico Madrid announced the signing of Suarez from its local rivals Barcelona, with a contract that extends for two seasons, after the Uruguay striker spent six seasons with the Catalan team. In the wake of his departure, his former colleague, “Leo,” posted an emotional message on his Instagram account and opened fire on the management of the Catalan team because of the “bad” way in which Suarez left.
Messi wrote on his account on the “Instagram” website, Friday: “You deserve to leave as you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club, winning titles as a member of the team and individually,” accompanying his words with pictures of him with the 33-year-old Uruguayan striker.
And the Argentine “Barghout” continued: “They should not have expelled you as they did, but the truth (their actions) no longer surprised me.”
In his career with Barcelona, who joined him in 2014, a strong friendship arose between Suarez and Messi, and a terrifying example of Europe. In some periods, a dangerous triple in the presence of Neymar, who left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
Messi was on the verge of leaving Barcelona last summer after informing the club of his desire to take on a new challenge. Still, the management insisted on paying the penalty clause in his contract worth 700 million euros.
