The Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman, thanked Lionel Messi for his contribution to the club on social media and assured that “it is difficult to assimilate” that the Argentine is not going to play any more for the Barça team.
“It is still difficult to assimilate that you will not play for Barcelona anymore. Thank you for everything you have done for the club, Leo. I have really enjoyed the season that we have worked together”, wrote the Dutch.
Koeman, who reacted to the forward’s departure nearly 48 hours after the departure became official, revealed that he was “impressed” by Messi’s “work ethic and desire to win.”
“This makes you the best player in the world. I wish you and your family all the best!” the coach finished.
After the explanations of the president of Barça, Joan Laporta, and the farewells on social networks of his teammates and his coach, Messi will offer a press conference this Sunday at 12.00 from the Auditori 1899 of the Camp Nou.
