Koeman breaks silence on Messi’s Barcelona exit
Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has spoken about Lionel Messi’s exit, two days after the club made the shock announcement.
Koeman, who worked with Messi for only one season, took to his Twitter page to bid the 34-year-old farewell.
He wrote: “Still hard to understand that you will not play for Barcelona anymore.
“Thanks for everything you have done for our club, Leo. I really enjoyed the full season we worked together.
“I am impressed by your work ethic and desire to win; it makes you the best player in the world. For now, I wish you and your family the best!”
Messi is now on the verge of completing a stunning move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentina captain will sign a two-year deal with the Ligue 1 giants, with an option of one more year.
