"Thank you, Leo
"Thank you, Leo
Only those two words chose Barcelona to accompany
a 7-minute video
with the best of Lionel Messi
on their Twitter account
and on the day it was announced that the Rosario star will not continue to wear the colors of the culé team.
As a farewell and tribute, the same video was published on Barcelona's YouTube channel under the title
"Leo Messi ... the greatest of all time"
It was 16:06, Argentine time, when the video was published from the Barcelona Twitter account with the simple message of thanks to the Argentine who
won 35 titles
with the culé shirt.

At 32 minutes after publication, there were more than 92 thousand
that the post had.
at a rate of 2,875
per minute, as if to give a dimension of the commotion generated by the departure of the best player in the world from the club that raised him and saw him grow and consecrate himself.
In the images, accompanied by moving music, Leo is seen in all his styles and how he changed over the years.
Bearded and shaved;
with short and long hair;
with the face of a child and with the captain's ribbon;
with the titular shirt and with the rose that was alternative;
crowned and lifted by fans;
playing under a flood, with sun, at night ...
Lionel Messi, the child.
With the splendor of its pique and its dribble;
and with goals, many goals.
And also off the pitch, as a symbol that Barcelona has been, an ambassador;
and in family.
The same video was also posted on the YouTube channel, although there it included a
that no Barcelona fan would have imagined and that had been announced about an hour before on the institution's Twitter account.
"Despite the fact that FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi have reached an agreement and the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today,
this cannot happen
due to economic and structural obstacles (regulations of the Spanish League)", the text begins .
Lionel Messi and a shirt that is already past.
And he continues with a direct blow to the heart of the fan: "As a result of this situation, M
essi will not stay at FC Barcelona
. Both parties deeply regret that the wishes of the player and the club are not finally fulfilled."
To conclude: "FC Barcelona
its gratitude to the player
for his contribution to the growth of the club and wishes him the best for the future in his personal and professional life."
And is not for less.
Messi is the most winning Argentine in football history with the Barcelona jersey: he won 35 titles.
He won 10 Leagues, 8 Spanish Super Cups, 7 King's Cups, 4 Champions League, 3 European Super Cups and 3 Club World Cups.
Lionel Messi will not continue at Barcelona.
