Lionel Messi Dedicated Celebration To Luis Suarez After Goal Against Villarreal

Lionel Messi Dedicated Celebration To Luis Suarez After Goal Against Villarreal

Lionel Messi dedicated his goal celebration against Villarreal to Luis Suarez after his Barcelona departure.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner opened his account for the season with a penalty in the 4-0 win at the Nou Camp, but made sure to give to a nod to Suarez.

Messi celebrated with a passionate arm flex and fist pump in the same way Suarez regularly reacts after finding the net, with Gerard Romero from RAC1 claiming the Argentine promised to honour his friend if he was on the scoresheet.

Suarez struck twice on his Atletico Madrid debut in a 6-1 thumping of Granada and he too performed his trademark celebration.

Messi's farewell message to Suarez on Instagram saw him rip into the club and prompted responses from the likes of Neymar, Dani Alves and even Suarez himself.
