Luis Suarez spoke, exclusively with “90 Minutes of Soccer”, Y He referred to his departure from Barcelona. “I think they wanted to get me out of the Lionel Messi side”, the Uruguayan forward sentenced.
In dialogue with Chicken Vignolo and company in ESPN, the Gunman pointed out: “I think they wanted to get me out of Messi’s side, maybe it bothered them that I have a good relationship with Leo. Maybe they wanted him not to be with me so much. I can’t find any reason for them to think that it was hurting the team.
“Obviously I miss Leo, but with technology we are constantly talking. We know the friendship we have. We share many things, from arriving every morning to training, to the dunks. Our children have a life together and we have a great family bond ”, explained the Uruguayan striker who shared 6 years with the Argentine at the Catalan club.
Precisely, about his time at the Blaugrana club, he analyzed: “They were six years in Barcelona and I always said that the club needed a young forward. They never brought anyone who could compete with me. Forwards have streaks and moments. I deserved at least that, before I found out from the press that they didn’t want me, they had called me and explained the reasons ”.
“There are many contradictions in Barcelona. I gave solutions if the issue was economic and if it was sports I could understand it, but they would have told me differently. The decision of the board was not clear to me “, He completed about the treatment he received from the club’s board.
The current Atlético de Madrid striker completed: “Two years ago they wanted to bring in other forwards because they wanted to kick me out. This comes from a long time ago. In 6 years, I never had a fight with a teammate in Barcelona and neither did Leo ”.
A FAMILY DRAMA
“My children felt at home in Barcelona. My son loves Barcelona and Leo, imagine what it was for him. When I had to tell them that we were leaving it was the hardest moment, for them and for my wife. But they wanted to see me happy and not be bitter or go somewhere to cry. Now luckily they are happy in Madrid now, that gives me a lot of tranquility “
UNCERTAINTY AND PAIN
“What they did hurt and hurt me and my family a lot. The ways and the manners weren’t right. That a coach comes saying that he no longer has me when the board had already said it raises doubts. Koeman called me to tell me that he was not going to take me into account when I had already known what was going to happen 10 days ago “
“I had a lot of uncertainty, because I had to go to train. I told Leo that I knew what they were going to do to me. I was going to train happy, but I returned home sad “
WHY DID MESSI WANT TO GO FROM THE BARCEONA?
“That Messi wants to leave Barcelona was not a gesture towards me. They should have respected the decision to want to leave. “
“Out of respect for the relationship I have with Leo, I’m not going to say what we talked about at the time, but he lived through a difficult and complicated situation. He wanted to leave and the club did not want to. I tried to support him, take care of him and make him get a little distracted. The cameras were behind him, it was complicated and you had to help him ”.
“Leo is aware of what it is for Barcelona. It has given him things that the club never imagined. He has to remain number 1, the best and be happy. “
“There may be the possibility that Messi plays for another club, but if he feels comfortable, happy again and another board arrives, he will want to continue at the club. As a friend, I’ll be happy if he does well there and if he has to go to another club, too ”.
WOULD YOU PLAY FOR REAL MADRID? WOULD A GOAL SCREAM AT BARCELONA? THIS SAID LUCHO
“Play for Real Madrid? Not crazy … I always dreamed of playing for Barcelona, since I was a kid ”.
“I would not yell a goal at Barcelona, but I would signal some part of the rostrum.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE CHOLO SIMEONE?
“El Cholo Simeone did not surprise me at all. He is very strict and works a lot on tactical discipline. I found a very good human group, with a lot of desire. I want to contribute as one more teammate and achieve important things at Atlético de Madrid “
