Barcelona told me I can no longer play at a high level - Luis Suarez

Barcelona told me I can no longer play at a high level - Luis Suarez

Former Barcelona star man Luis Suarez has revealed why he left the club for Atletico Madrid after playing for them for 6 years.

Luis Suarez made the move to Atletico Madrid last September after it was revealed he is no longer needed at Camp Nou. The statement was not accepted by everyone and even Lionel Messi condemned the way Suarez was treated by the Spanish side.

Since joining Atletico Madrid, Luis Suarez hasn't disappointed as he has continued his fine form in front of the goal and has helped the Madrid side stay top of the La Liga table.

Speaking with France Football, Luis Suarez has revealed what Barcelona said to him that made him decide to join Atletico Madrid.

“What really bothered me was when they told me that I was old and that I could no longer play at a high level, be up to [the task of fronting] a great team,” Suarez said.

“That’s what I did not like.

“If I hadn't done anything at a club like Barca for three or four seasons, I would have understood.

“But, every year at Barca, I scored more than 20 goals per season. I have always had good statistics, just behind Leo (Messi).

“Today, we can see that it is not easy to play at Barca ... A lot of players who signed there did not have the level that was expected of them. Me, I played for six years at Barca maintaining a certain level and living up to what was expected of me.

“At Barca, circumstances have changed, the club needed changes. And I accepted it. The only thing that bothered me was the way [it happened]. I think I deserved some respect.

"It was a decision that I could not prevent. I felt like I was no longer being counted on, so with my pride I told myself that I was going to continue to show what I am worth. This is why the idea of going to Atletico, a competitive team, appealed to me."
