Barcelona and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has revealed in a press conference in Spain that, he snubbed Real Madrid because playing for Barcelona was his dream.
The former Liverpool man is always a great admirer of Barcelona fans and he has done the understandable thing by revealing this news to his club Fans.
Suarez exposed this great love for Barcelona to EL Partido de las 12. He Said, “Yes, I spoke to them but said ‘later’. Real Madrid wanted me at Santiago Barnabu, but my dream was here”.
Barcelona’s approach to him was surprising to him. After the world cup bite incident, he probably didn’t imagine this great move can be happened.
“When I heard the name ‘Barcelona’ I didn’t hesitate. Honestly, I never imagined Barcelona would come in and had no doubts at all once they did”
“You never know what can happen in football but luckily I stuck around for Barca, which was what I wanted. It was the fulfillment of a dream I had had for so long.”
It was really a tough starting of the season for Barcelona and Suarez as well. He did all the hard work on the pitch and off the pitch but the goal didn’t come. It was really frustrating for the fans and for the €84 million rated player.
The Main man of Barcelona Lionel Messi also passed some hard time at that moment. He found it hard to adjust under the new coach Luis Enrique. In his press briefing Suarez admitted these facts.
In his Word, “It wasn’t that I had anxiety, but I felt like I had won a prize in a lottery and couldn’t enjoy having fulfilled my dream.”
“I felt like I had been invited to play rather but slowly that disappeared. Once I was alongside my peers, I felt more comfortable.”
After the January transfer window everything has changed for Barcelona like a miracle. Suarez has got back his form back and now everything is running smoothly in Nou Camp.
The dynamic trio Messi, Neymar and Suarez are passing some wonderful time. They can now think about winning the treble La Liga title, Champions League title and the Copa del Rey title. According to Suarez, he and his teammates is not thinking about the treble yet.
“No, I tell you sincerely that we are not talking in the dressing room about winning three titles.”
“We are in the race for three trophies. We have the Copa final, which we will forget now until May 30; the league depends on ourselves and we must think game by game because every game is difficult.”
The Barcelona superstar doesn’t think it is impossible to win the finals but he wants to see these matters rationally.
The Champions is not a lottery, but at this stage the best teams are in contention and anyone can challenge. You just do not know what can happen.”
This honest saying about ‘Suarez snubbed Real Madrid’ will certainly make him more popular among the Barcelona fans.
