Papu Gomez's reaction
“He started to speak and the truth is, I don’t remember the right words, because right away, I was already crying. He said something about the efforts, of the families, and my tears fell like a baby.
“We were all waiting for that final. The days and hours before that did not pass. We had full adrenaline and Leo started talking, Fideo too. Today I can’t reconstruct what they said, I just remember that I wouldn’t stop crying.”
A countless number of Barcelona fans are still finding it difficult to come to terms that Lionel Messi has left the club considering what the Argentine did at the Camp Nou before his departure.
At the Nou Camp, Lionel Messi wore the iconic number 10 shirt for 13 seasons as he also inherited it from Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho.
Before moving to Barcelona, Sergio Aguero was wearing the number 10 jersey at Manchester City as he helped the Citizens to win the Premier League title last term before his exit.
