Lionel Messi sends farewell message to Sergio Busquets: “You are a 10”


On Wednesday, Sergio Busquets announced that he has decided to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, once his current contract expires. It brings to an end an incredible 18-year association with the club.

Busquets is regarded as one of the best players to come through Barcelona’s ranks and another, Lionel Messi, took the opportunity to pay tribute to his friend and former team-mate.

In an Instagram post, Messi was full of praise for Busquets‘ efforts at Barcelona.

“On the pitch always with the 5 but in reality, as a player and as a person, you are a 10, Busi.

I wish you the best in your new stage and in everything, both you and your family.

Thank you for the on and off the pitch, there were so many moments we spent together, many good and some also complicated. They will remain forever!”

There had been talk that Busquets’ renewal at Barcelona would depend on Messi re-joining the club this summer. However, it appears that the former has decided against waiting to see if that comes to fruition.

Messi may still join Barcelona this summer, but if he does, he will not be playing alongside Busquets.
