Luis Suarez had one of the more legendary Barcelona careers in recent memory. The Uruguayan striker was lethal and a lovely player to root for while paired with Lionel Messi.

His exit from the club wasn’t all that legendary. There was disputes about how he should leave and where he should go. He chatted a bit about his exit and the sadness that he went through in those final days.

​”Those days were very difficult. I cried because of what I was having to go through.”

“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. 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.”

“My wife could see how unhappy I was and she wanted to see me smile again and when the chance came to join Atletico I had no doubts.”
