Barcelona star Lionel Messi had some words of thanks for his now ex-manager, Ernesto Valverde, who has been replaced at Camp Nou by Quique Setien.
"Thanks for everything, mister," were Messi's first words on Instagram after Barça took the decision to change coach mid-season for the first time since 2003.
"I'm sure you will do great wherever you go because, besides being a great professional, you're a magnificent person," he added. "I wish you a lot of luck and send you a big hug."
Now, after more than two years working with Valverde, it's time to change 'chip' and get used to the methods which will be brought by Setien.
