Luis Suarez has revealed the emotional trauma he went through when he was told his services were no longer needed at Barcelona.
The 33-year-old then moved to La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid and recalls the experience before making his debut for Diego Simeone's side.
As quoted by Diario SPORT Suarez said:
"I spent six years in Barcelona and there were other ways to speak with me and tell me they'd planned changes.
"Those days, Thursday to Sunday, until my debut with Atletico, were really complicated. I cried about everything I was going through.
"I didn't take the club message well because of how they did it, more than anything, because you have to accept when a cycle ends."
Reports claim the Uruguayan striker was let off the hook to stabilize Barcelona's massive player's wage bill.
It is understood that the former Liverpool striker was ready to accept to play as a substitute under new manager Ronald Koeman but it was not accepted.
Suarez was on song for Uruguay when they defeated Chile by 2-1 in their 2022 South America World Cup qualifier.
And on his debut for Atletico in La Liga, he also scored a brace and created an assist in the 6-1 thrashing of Granada.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez crossed paths for the first time since they were separated from each other when the Uruguayan striker left for Atletico Madrid.
The best friends met at the airport in Barcelona ahead of their international duty for their respective countries.
Suarez was told he was surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou after six years of service following the arrival of Ronald Koeman this summer.
Legit.ng also reported that Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has broken his silence on his viral online rant against his club in the wake of the departure of his long-time teammate and friend Luis Suarez.
Suarez unceremoniously left the Nou Camp to join Barcelona’s La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid on a two-year deal.
His exit came amid reports that new Barca manager Ronald Koeman had made it clear the Uruguay international was surplus to requirements at the club, something which Messi did not take very kindly.
