Lionel Messi has taken to Facebook to describe his feelings after celebrating his 10th anniversary at Barcelona on Thursday.
The Argentine forward made his official Barca debut as a 17-year-old against Espanyol on October 16, 2004, one recognised for his delightful chip and he has since gone on to win six La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues and break a large number of goalscoring records.
Social media sites were flooded on Thursday with records, thanks and much more about Messi’s 10th anniversary at the Catalan club and he took to Facebook to thank everyone for their support over the years.
“I want to thank all my family, friends, colleagues and the entire staff of FC Barcelona for all their support in these 10 wonderful years,” he wrote.
“I always enjoy wearing the Barça colours on the pitch along with every beautiful moment. I just want to keep getting better and win more titles for the team. A big hug to everyone!”
Messi also added via Instagram:”I hope I have many more years ahead of me. I really want to keep winning and growing. I hope it continues for many years. Many thanks for all the messages and congratulations.”
