Messi coined an emotional farewell message to his six-year-long teammate Luis Suarez. Recently, Luis Suarez officially joined Atletico Madrid from Barcelona. In his Instagram post, he expressed how much he would miss his friend Luis Suarez.

Moreover, he expresses his disbelief that he will have to play against Suarez, that is vs Atletico Madrid. It is not always that players leave a team to join their rivals. However, Griezmann did the same, so did Robin Van Persie. On the other hand, we have some loyal club players who have stuck by their team throughout a good part of their careers. Totti comes to mind.
