Luis Suarez was disappointed a little over a year ago when he had to leave Barcelona. They didn't want that, but Ronald Koeman didn't have it in his plans, and he allegedly told him that in a short telephone conversation.
The Uruguayan was practically banished to Atletico Madrid, with whom he reached the title, and on Saturday night he served revenge on the Dutch coach at the worst possible moment, while his bench at the Nou Camp was seriously shaking.
It is very possible that Suarez signed Koeman's dismissal with his goal for 2: 0. We will see what Joan Laporta will decide in the coming days, maybe hours, and until then, we will talk again about how many mistakes Barcelona made by deciding not to offer a new contract to the great goal scorer.
It is debated after the match in the Spanish sports public whether Saurez told Koeman exactly the way he will celebrate the goal. He first gestured an apology, but then a phone conversation. The Uruguayan claims that the first gesture was sent to the players and fans of Barcelona, and that the second has nothing to do with the Dutchman.
"It was addressed to people who know that I still use the same number and that I have the same phone. It was not for Koeman, not at all." "If you really want to know, I joked with my children that I would celebrate the goal that way," Suarez said after the game.
He also explained why he did not celebrate the goal given to the team that was the only one in the Primera until this game against which he was not the scorer. "I knew in advance that I would apologize if I score.
Out of respect, because I am still a Barcelona fan. Also because of the career, I had at that club, because of the difficult period that my colleagues and fans are going through. Out of respect," he repeated. Uruguayan. Regardless of all that, he is delighted with the victory of Atletico Madrid.
"That's what we wanted. This was a special rival for me because of previous experience, but my job is to be 100 percent dedicated to Atletico Madrid and in this game we all gave our best to get to three points," said Madrid's top scorer last season with 21 goals. He is currently on five in ten games. Atletico Madrid have a good chance to win the championship again
