Luis Suarez denies claims he and Messi didn’t get on with Griezmann and insists they did NOT run Barcelona dressing room – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

LUIS SUAREZ has insisted he and Lionel Messi had no problem with Antoine Griezmann at Barcelona.

Griezmann has gone on record previously as saying he does not talk to Messi much at the club, while the Argentine admitted he had been screwed by the Frenchman when he initially rejected Barcelona in 2018.

But Suarez, who moved to Atletico Madrid last summer, says neither him or Messi had a problem with Griezmann.

Speaking to Mundo Deportivo, he said: “Totally false that Leo and I had a bad relationship with Griezmann.

“I am a much better person outside than on the pitch, much better; on the court I am very competitive.”

Suarez was ousted from the Barcelona set-up last year as the Catalan club had a clear-out following a trophyless season which included an 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

And he has now confirmed that Barca told him not to go to training before he had even agreed a deal with Atletico.

He added: “When Barça made it official that they did not count on me, they began conversations with Atleti, with Cholo, with Miguel Ángel …. Koeman called me and told me that they did not count on me.”

“At Barça they told me not to go to train, I told them that as long as I had a contract I would train. The club did not give me any explanation, they only told me that it was a decision of the coach.

“Not only Messi, many Barça fans didn’t understand the decision … I didn’t want to be a problem.

“It hurt me to leave Barça because of the ways and the times.”

Suarez has impressed for Atletico since joining at the beginning of the season, scoring 14 goals in 20 games.

Diego Simeone’s side hold a ten point lead in the La Liga title race and also have a game in hand on Real Madrid and Barcelona.
