Luis Suarez Was Visibly Emotional In Barcelona Farewell Press Conference

Luis Suarez was visibly emotional during his Barcelona farewell today.

It's been confirmed that the Uruguayan is leaving the Blaugrana after six years and fought back the tears as he spoke at a press conference at the Nou Camp.

Having been seen wiping away tears as he left Barcelona's training ground for the last time yesterday, Suarez had to take a moment to compose himself when the emotions got the better of him.


Having arrived from Liverpool in a £74 million deal six years ago, Suarez went on to score 198 goals in 283 appearances and departs the club as the club's third-highest ever goalscorer - with only Lionel Messi and Cesar ahead of him in the rankings.

During his time at the Nou Camp, the 33-year- old lifted a total of 13 trophies - including four La Liga titles, four Copa Del Reys, one Champions League and one Club World Cup.

With Barca agreeing to terminate his contract following new boss Ronald Koeman deeming him surplus to requirements, he will now join Atletico Madrid on a two-year deal after a move to Juventus fell through due to passport issues.

As per BBC, Los Rojiblancos are poised to pay Barcelona a €6 million nominal fee due to certain performance-related variables such as Champions League qualification being achieved, with Suarez taking a fifty per cent pay cut at the Wanda Metropolitano.
