Following his press conference at Camp Nou, Leo Messi has also sent a message to the fans on his Instagram page.
“I would have liked to leave in another way, although I suppose that a farewell can never be something nice…” Messi writes.
“I would have loved to continue here, I did everything with that in mind, and in the end, it did not happen. I only have words of gratitude for all those who have accompanied me in so many years at the club.
“And for our fans, who have given me all their love and to whom I tried to give it back while also giving everything for this shirt. I’m leaving, but it’s not a goodbye, just a see you later. Visca Barca!!!”
The 34-year-old also shared some of the pictures he took after the press conference.
