Luis Suarez broke down in tears after winning the La Liga title with Atletico Madrid
On Saturday, Atletico Madrid defeated Valladolid 1-2 to win their 11th La Liga title. Luis Suarez and Angel Correa scored the comeback goals in the second half.
After the match, Suarez broke down in tears while talking to his family on the mobile phone.
Suarez scored 21 goals in this La Liga season, 9 behind Leo Messi’s 30 goals who recently won his 8th Pichichi trophy.
The Uruguayan believes that he was underestimated by Barcelona. He is a Barca legend who scored 195 goals in his 6 years stay at the Camp Nou.
“It’s tough. The situation I had to live through, the way I was looked down on, but Atletico opened the door for me,” Suarez said, according to Marca.
“A lot of people have suffered with me – my wife, my children.
“Day by day, they are the ones who have suffered the most from my many years in football.
“We’ve had a great year. Despite the difficulties, we were the most consistent team and we’re the champions.
“In the first half of the season we had an efficiency that wasn’t normal.”
Messi and Neymar also commented over Suarez and gave some truthful statements about Barca.
“You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did, but the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore,” said Messi.
“Incredible how they do things” said Neymar about how Barcelona forced Suarez out of the club.
