Confirmed as a reinforcement for Atletico Madrid, Luis Suárez put an end to his career at Barcelona on Thursday. In a special farewell ceremony, the attacker gave a press conference and avoided the tone of complaint. And he could not hold back the emotion when he remembered the good times and the friends made at the Camp Nou.
Very emotional after seeing a video of his best moments at the club, Suárez was unable to contain his tears when he remembered his arrival in 2014 – months after being marked by the controversial bite in Chiellini at the World Cup. The Uruguayan thanked the club for its confidence even after the mistake.
Suárez pointed out that he feels able to continue competing, despite his age, and that he believes the club needs to make changes. The Uruguayan bet that Barcelona will have a good year under the command of Ronald Koeman and that he was already waiting for his “layoff”. “I waited, it was talked about before he communicated. I had no problem stepping aside, I just wanted to continue training while looking for a solution. And Koeman agreed with that.”
