Leo Messi used the social networks Facebook and Instagram to show thanks for the congratulatory messages he received for the 10th anniversary of his official debut with FC Barcelona on 16 October, 2004 at Montjuic.

On Facebook, Messi said: "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. 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!"

Then, in a video on Instagram, he talked more about his desire to stay with FC Barcelona: "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."

This morning on Twitter, President Josep Maria Bartomeu was one of the first people to praise the star: "Leo, thank you for everything you've given us these past 10 years, and for all that is still to come."
