Uruguay and Atletico Madrid star, Luis Suarez has opened up for the first time about his acrimonious exit from Barcelona this summer.

 

Suarez was forced to find a new club over the summer after new coach Ronald Norman revealed he wasn’t part of his plans and Suarez believes  he deserved better treatment from his former side.

 

Suarez’s close friend and former colleague Lionel Messi took a swipe at Barcelona over how they shoved off  Suarez out of Camp Nou, and now Suarez has commented on Messi’s statement.

“You deserved a farewell that fit with who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club. Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level,” Messi posted on Instagram at the time.

“You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”

“I was not surprised about Messi because I know him too well, I knew the pain he felt, as I did,” Suarez said after scoring in Uruguay’s 2-1 win against Chile on Thursday.

“He felt they kicked me out of the club because of the forms. There were other ways to do things correctly with me. They were six long years and that bothered him too. I see him as a friend and he knows how badly we suffered.

“My family wanted to see me happy. There are some strange things at Barcelona like sending you to train separately because you were not considered for the game…

“Those kinds of things made me bad and my family saw me affected, so they encouraged me to take the opportunity. When Atletico came looking for me, I didn’t hesitate for a single moment.

“Obviously I have to get used to various things, but I feel very happy at Atletico.”

“He (Olhats) was very important in my life but I don’t have a relationship with him anymore,” Griezmann said.

“I stopped having any relationship with him since the day I got married. I invited him to the wedding day, and he didn’t come. That’s why I stopped having a relationship with him.

“My uncle doesn’t know how football works. And in the end, the journalist ended up getting the statement out of him. I told Leo that I never speak to them, in fact, I don’t even have my uncle’s phone number.

“Everyone says it’s a decent name. Li is quite a common name in China. I’m used to people calling me it now.

 

“Some people still call me Nico. Some call me Li Ke but it’s more fans who will call me by my Chinese name.”

 

The former England youth star said it wasn’t a hard decision to waive his British citizenship.

 

He explained: “I was probably the most relaxed and most calm about it out of everyone. I think people around me were nervous because it hadn’t been done before.

“But my thinking was football-based: I was progressing and if that’s what it takes to play international football, let’s go with it.

 

“I just made my decision there and then. I didn’t really dwell on it. I wanted to play for China.”

 

He made his China debut in a 2-0 friendly win over the Philippines on June 7 last year.

“When you go through certain areas, you see the history of the country with the architecture and the detail in some of the framework.

 

“Then you can drive half an hour in another direction and it’s like you’re living in 2024 with how modern it is.

 

“The way of living here is very relaxed, despite there being so many people. In London, everyone is head down, 100 miles an hour. It feels really busy but here it’s more relaxed.

 

“Buildings go up rapidly out here. You can definitely see and sense the feeling of growth within the country.”
