Luis Suarez has revealed that the way he exited Barcelona in the summer made him cry.
The Uruguayan forward, who became the Blaugrana’s third all-time top goalscorer with 198 strikes in six years, was forced out of the club in the summer, joining La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.
Despite having begun life at the Wanda Metropolitano positively with two goals in his first three games for the club, the way he was allowed to leave the Camp Nou still aggravates the striker.
Suarez said: “Those days were very difficult. I cried because of what I was having to go through.
“I was hurt most of all by the way they did things, because one has to accept it when a cycle comes to an end.”
“I didn’t take the club’s message that they were looking for a solution for me in order to mix things up very well.
“Not everyone knows what happened but the worst thing was going to training and being sent to a different group from everyone else because I was not allowed to play in practice matches.”
Despite Suarez’s bright start to the season, Diego Simeone’s Atleti haven’t been all too convincing with just one win in their first three matches. The Rojiblancos sit at odds of 9/1 with Betfair at the current time to win the 2020/21 Spanish league title.
