Lionel Messi has sent a message to Andres Iniesta after the Barcelona midfielder confirmed on Friday that this would be his last season at the Camp Nou.
The Argentine was missing from Friday’s press conference for personal reasons but took to social media later to show his appreciation for the Barcelona legend.
He wrote: “Andres, thank you for all these years of football.
“It has been a privilege to enjoy this sport by your side and spend so many unforgettable moments together. I wish you all the best in this new stage in sports and in your life.
“You are a phenomenon, on and off the pitch. We will miss you!”
Barcelona without Iniesta is going to take some getting used to and Messi is certainly going to miss him next season.
