On Friday, Barcelona players rushed to social media to express their feelings over Lionel Messi's departure and to convey their best wishes to the captain.


The players were initially deafeningly quiet as the news came yesterday, but messages have now flooded in as the reality of Messi's departure sinks in.

Sergio Busquets was among the first to express his feelings and bid farewell to the forward.


Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, and Carles Puyol all made passionate posts. After Messi's final game in a Barcelona shirt, Pique confessed that "nothing will ever be the same."


Left-back Jordi Alba also shared a lengthy Instagram post.


Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati, and Ilaix Moriba, all of Barcelona, took the opportunity to praise Messi and express their gratitude for the opportunity to play alongside the GOAT.

In social media tweets, French duo Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann also expressed their gratitude to Messi. Both players had been connected with summer departures, but they now appear to be staying at Camp Nou.
