Luis Suarez he is one of the best strikers of the season in Europe. The Uruguayan, who left Barcelona to join Atlético de Madrid, is he LaLiga scorer and seeks to maintain his good moment in the duel against Chelsea. However, the ‘charrúa’ revealed what was the reason for his departure from the ‘blaugrana’ club “It really bothered me”.
In a chat with France Football, the ‘gunman’ explained why he left Barcelona at the beginning of the current season. «What really bothered me was that they told me that I was older and that I could no longer play at the highest level, be at the level of a great team. That’s what disgusted me. Barcelona fired me, they told me they no longer had me, “confessed the forward.
“Another question is if you still have a multi-year contract and the club wants to sell you. But the club indicated that they no longer considered me anyway. They just didn’t want me anymore. He deserved a certain respect, ”added the Uruguayan who won 13 titles in Barcelona, including a Champions League and four Leagues.
In this sense, Suáres was very upset because in Barcelona they did not value the performance he had at the club. “If I hadn’t shown anything at Barcelona for three or four seasons… I would have understood. But I have scored more than 20 goals every season. I have always had good statistics, only behind Messi. Today it has become clear that it is not easy to play for Barcelona. Many purchases have not been able to meet expectations in Barcelona. I reached a certain level in Barcelona for six years and did what was expected of me.
For this reason, the Uruguayan forward explained why he chose to stay in LaLiga wearing the Atlético de Madrid shirt. “With all my pride I told myself that I would prove my worth. And that’s why I was attracted to playing for Atlético de Madrid, an ambitious club », explained the ‘gunman’.
