MADRID, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona striker Leo Messi on Friday launched a stinging criticism of the club's Board of Directors for their treatment of Luis Suarez.
It was Suarez's move to Atletico Madrid this week that led to Lionel Messi writing a 'goodbye' letter to his friend in which he accused Barca's directors of 'throwing out' Suarez, adding that "nothing surprised him".
