Suarez claimed leaving Barcelona hurt Messi

The Argentine star left Barcelona as a free agent last summer and joined PSG.

Luis Suarez claimed that Lionel Messi's departure from Barcelona hurt the Argentinian star and he has never seen Messi cry like that.

The Uruguayan striker, who scored 198 goals in 283 games for Barca, left Barca in the summer of 2020. The club forced him to leave and the Uruguayan star was very upset about it. Finally, Suarez joined Atlético Madrid and won the La Liga championship with this team. Messi also tried to leave Barca in the same summer, but the club prevented him from leaving until he left Barca as a free agent in the summer of 2021. Now, Suarez claimed that the departure of the Argentine star from Barca hurt him.

He said:

“It hurt and we suffered a lot. We came from the elimination in the Champions League against Bayern Munich and Leo's burofax, everything was very complicated and painful. Firstly, because of the way things went, and also because of the way we were treated.

“I went, I showed up to train and they sent me to train separately. I suffered a lot and came home and cried because of how they had treated me. It hurt me, it was also a message that they wanted to leave Leo alone, separate him.

We had a bad time. Leo suffered a lot. I had never seen Messi cry like I saw him cry at Barcelona, it hurt him. I always had that uncertainty as to why it all happened, but then luckily I was happy at Atletico Madrid.”
