Suárez: 'I'm proud to have been part of the history of the club'

The Uruguayan striker said goodbye to the club whilst noting that he has experienced 'six spectacular and wonderful years' as a Barça player

Luis Suárez's stage at Barça is over but his legacy will be eternal. The Uruguayan forward is leaving after "six spectacular and wonderful years" in which he has become part of the history of the club. The third highest scorer couldn't contain the tears in his farewell speech. “I am very proud of everything I did. My children have seen me score goals, win trophies and play alongside extraordinary players and above all alongside the best player in the world,” said the man from Salto.

Excited and looking forward, he also expressed his gratitude to the Barça fans: “I want to thank the fans, who have given me a lot of love. I will not forget that. I'd also like thank all the staff for their hard work everyday. I want to let them know that I am always going to be one more culer wherever I go."

Best moments at Barça 

“I have experienced many moments that will remain in my memory. The first league title, the Champions League, to play with wonderful players. It has been incredible”

“I have had six spectacular and wonderful years with great team-mates and the people around the club, which I will remember"

“You have to appreciate that I am proud of these six years that I have been at the club. I will always be grateful to Barça for allowing me to experience wonderful and unforgettable moments"

Barça's third highest scorer in history

“I leave with a feeling of fulfilment. I didn't imagine reaching these numbers. Being the third top scorer in the history of Barça (with 198 goals) is not easy at all"

A combative player, always

“I can self-criticise, for example because of what happened in the Champions League, but I can't blame myself for anything. I have played with injuries and I'm proud to have been part of the history of the club"

Friendship with Messi

“During these last few years Leo has been brilliant for me. Together, we have helped Barça a lot"

"I have already faced Leo with the national team and this will not change our relationship"


Thanks to the fans

“I will be eternally grateful to the fans for the support they gave me from the beginning. They've always supported me"

The future of Barça

“In training I have seen that there is more desire. There are many young players and also experienced players, so this year there is more of an ability to rotate. It's sure to be an important year for Barça and I hope that they can achieve good things."
