Barcelona regrets selling Luis Suarez as they succumb to yet another first-leg defeat at the hands of Paris Saint Germain, on February 17th, 2021.
Subsequently, the Uruguayan international had been a regular provider for Barcelona in the department of scoring goals.
Luis Suarez joined Barcelona on July 11th, 2014, and made an immediate impact, linking up with Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. Conversely, they created a formidable strike force and were on par with Real Madrid’s BBC (Bale, Benzema, and Cristiano) for three years (2014 to 2017).
While he departed for Barcelona, his former coach Brendan Rodgers said in an interview with BBC Sport, “Luiz Suarez is an exceptional player, and I would like to thank him for the part he played in my team.” Subsequently, the thirty-four-year-old has received praise from many other players and managers alike.
On February 18th, 2021, former Argentine international Oscar Ruggeri praised Luis Suarez and took a dig at Barcelona.
El ‘Camazon’ highlighted in an interview with ESPN that “Barcelona drove Suarez out of the club without displaying respect for the goals he scored and his value as a player.”
Luis Suarez was instrumental in all Barcelona fixtures against Les Rouge Et Bleu. On April 16th, 2015, he scored two goals that gifted Barca a victory over PSG in the Champions League Q/F’s first leg.
Suarez commenced the second-leg victory against PSG through a goal and by winning a penalty. This lead to the notorious ‘La Remontada’ on March 9th, 2017.
Luis Suarez: I will not retire, until I wish for it
There has been a talk in recent weeks about when the Atletico Madrid talisman might retire.
Luiz Suarez has entered the age when most footballers would consider their retirement. However, there are others too who do not let the concept of age stop them too, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Nevertheless, like Zlatan, Luis Suarez also holds the same opinion, and he told ESPN that “He will decide when he retires and will not be forced into making a decision by others.”
This news would come as a delight to all fans of the prolific goal scorer, who want to see him top the La Liga goal charts (where he resides at the moment) for more seasons to come.
