My numbers were always good behind Messi only, today it has become clear that it is not easy to play in Barcelona. Barcelona concluded many deals that did not fulfill the expectations expected of them, and I maintained my level in Barcelona for six years, and achieved what the club expected from me, “according to the Spanish newspaper” AS “.
Suarez commented on Ronald Koeman’s call in which he told him to look for another club and move him to Atlético de Madrid, saying: “It was a decision that I could not avoid, a decision that I could not do anything towards.

Regarding his adaptation to the way Atlético Madrid plays, Suárez explained: “I welcomed this change after all that I lived in Barcelona. The most difficult thing I faced about it was that my family had been living in Barcelona for six years. Friends and life in Barcelona, this was definitely the most difficult, especially in the midst of this pandemic, as it made it more difficult to adapt in Madrid. “
