Luis Suarez left FC Barcelona for Atletico Madrid this summer. Leo Messi also wanted to change the club colors, but the Argentine was not allowed to leave the team. The Uruguayan forward believes his friend can stay at Camp Nou on one condition.
After a completely unsuccessful 2019/2020 season, FC Barcelona has undergone major changes this summer. Some well-paid players left and Ronald Koeman took over. According to media reports, it was the Dutchman who saw no place in the line-up for Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan was practically forced to leave the club. Earlier, Leo Messi also wanted to leave, but the Argentine was not allowed to terminate the contract. According to Suarez, everything may end with the extension of the contract with “Blaugrana” by the six-time winner of the Golden Ball.
– Out of respect for the relationship I have with Leo, I can’t tell you what we were talking about then. He has experienced a difficult and complicated situation. He wanted to leave, but the club wouldn’t let him. I tried to support him, look after him and distract him a little Suarez said.
– I think they wanted me away from Messi. Perhaps they were concerned that I had a good relationship with Leo. They probably didn’t want me that close – added the Uruguayan.
– They should respect his decision. There is a possibility that he will play for another club. If he feels comfortable, he will be happy again, and another management will appear, it may however make him want to continue playing for Barcelonae – he said.
– As his friend, I will be happy when he feels good here. If he decides he has to go to another team, it will be the same – finished.
