"You deserved a send off for what you are: one of the most important players in the club's history, achieving important things both as a group and individually," he wrote.
"And not to get kicked out like they did. But the truth is that at this point nothing surprises me."
And Suarez has now replied to Messi's post, thanking him for his kind words.
"Thank you FRIEND for your words but MORE THANKS for being who you are, for what you were from the first day with me and my family," he wrote.
"I will always be grateful to the HUMAN @leomessi, the FUNNY AND THE SENTIMENTAL, because everyone knows the player.
"Do not forget what I told you 'I continued enjoying and showing that you are the ONE for something' and that 2,3 or 4 do not cloud how GIANT you are for the club and for the world of football.
"I love you a lot friend and we are going to MISS you, us 5."
