Suarez settles with Barça

Barça and coach Ronald Koeman (57) sorted out forward star Luis Suarez (33) in the summer.

In an interview with „ESPN“, Suarez settles with the FC Barcelona officials.

Luis Suarez played for Barcelona FC from 2014 to 2020. In the six years he scored 195 goals and 113 assists in 283 competitive matches. This summer his time with Barça expired. The Uruguayan is angry mainly because of the way he is. He says, “There are many contradictions.“ The decision is incomprehensible to the striker. „I don’t know why they made the decision they made.“

Especially his connection to the six-time world footballer Lionel Messi (33) was always very strong. Too strong? Suarez says, “I think they wanted to remove me from Messi’s side. Maybe they wanted him to play more with other players.“

Unlike Suarez, Messi wanted to leave Barça on his own this summer. However, the association insisted on the exit clause of 700 million euros. Suarez finds this wrong: “You should have respected his decision to leave the club.“

Suarez criticizes above all the circumstances of his change. „It really hurt me and my family the way they did.” He goes on to say, “It wasn’t unlikely otherwise, but at least I deserved them to call me and explain it to me before I hear about it through the media. “
