Suárez predicts that there will be «Messi for a long time»

In an interview with BeIN Sports, the Uruguayan scorer considered that the words of ‘La Pulga’ originated from the stage where he was. «I think he was misunderstood. First because you have to understand that Leo had just received a new Golden Ball at that time, and at that time he must be happy and nervous also because he is a human being like us. I think there will be Leo Messi for a long time».  In relation to Leo’s new achievement, Suárez acknowledged: «I was very impressed with that picture of Leo with the six Golden Balls because it is something unique. What he is doing in football is something historical. As a friend and partner, it is something that makes me proud».

His substitute

On the other hand, the charrúa was questioned about the possibility of Barça hiring another front center in a short term, because he is 32 years old and they should go looking for his relief. «If they bring me one more partner to compete, it will be the same pressure as the one I will have playing every three days. One who is a fan of the club, and who likes how they have treated him here, because he looks at the future and the best thing they would have to do is to look for a young or made forward so that he has the possibility to enjoy being the ‘9’ of Barcelona when I’m not here anymore».


Regarding the objectives of the season and the bitter taste of the last editions of the Champions League, Suárez set his position. «It is not easy to win all three competitions (League, Cup and Champions), it is not easy to win the Champions League. It’s very complicated. We are very hurt by what happened in the last two seasons. It was our hundred percent mistake and we are aware that we have to turn that situation around».

Griezmann and Neymar

In recent days it has been made public that Antoine Griezmann, who arrived this season in Barcelona and has struggled to adapt to the style of play, has shared moments with Messi and Suárez off the court to get to know each other better. «(Dinners) These are moments that one enjoys. Moments when it comes to knowing more. He is feeling very comfortable himself. In the dressing room he had a very good welcome showing him that he comes to help and try to get the titles we want». And regarding the possible return of Neymar, he said: «his departure was a risk he wanted to have to try a new possibility, knowing that he was here surrounded by the best players. It is acceptable and understandable. His return will depend on the club, the PSG and him. As his friend, I would love to see him happy and playing where he feels comfortable».
