Lionel Messi has thanked Ernesto Valverde and wished him well for his future endeavors.

FC Barcelona recently announced that they have parted ways with their head coach Ernesto Valverde after he was unable to provide the desired results as the club demanded.

Ernesto Valverde has been deemed unworthy as the Barcelona manager a while back by the fans. But, as it seems, the Spanish Super Cup knockout was the last straw for the Barcelona board.

Recently, Lionel Messi has come out and expressed his admiration for the Spaniard. Messi, on his social media page, shared a photo of him and Valverde while praising his former boss.

“Thank you for everything. I’m sure you will be great wherever you go, because, besides being a great professional, you’re a magnificent person.

“Good luck and a big hug.”

Luis Suarez also followed suit and thanked Ernesto Valverde. The Barcelona striker remarked the 55-year old’s qualities while wishing him well on his future endeavors.

“Thank you very much mister for all the moments we live as professionals,”

“Keep the positive things you taught me and the great human being you are. Thanks to you and all your staff for the professionalism. I wish you good luck in everything that comes for the future!”
