Luis Suarez has joined Spanish Athletico Madrid on a two-year deal for £5.5million after leaving Spanish giants Barcelona.

Suarez who still had one more year left on his contract with Barcelona, left after the new head coach of the club, Ronald Koeman made it clear that he wasn’t part of the picture he’s creating.

The Player expressed confidence about his recent move “I feel I’m capable of continuing to compete in this league. When Barca told me they weren’t counting on me, there were many calls, many offers, but I was able to go to a team that can compete as equals with two great teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid. I had no doubts.” He said.

Luis Suarez is leaving Barcelona as the club’s all time second highest scorer with a total of 198 goals.

He had a very successful stay at the club, winning the league several times, 4 copa del reys, as well as the champions league, the club world cup and the European Super Cup.

Suarez was linked with a move to Italian giants, Juventus earlier but due to some issues regarding Italian citizenship the player was unable to seal the deal.
