Lionel Messi has sent a message to former Barcelona team-mate Samuel Eto’o following his decision to hang up his boots.

The Barcelona captain took to Instagram to pay tribute to the club legend who endured a phenomenally successful career at the Camp Nou.

He wrote: “Have you decided to stop, Samu? I thought you would reach 40 at least ... All the luck in the world in what you want to do from now on, genius.”
