Emotional Suarez Thanks Atletico

Luis Suarez was in tears on Saturday after his goal helped Atletico Madrid clinch the Spanish Liga title, thanking the club for rescuing him. The Uruguayan, who moved to Madrid from Barcelona in August, thanked “Atletico for opening their doors to me.”  “I am filled with emotions,” the 34-year-old Uruguayan striker told Spanish broadcaster Movistar after scoring in Atletico’s 2-1 victory in Valladolid. He offered veiled criticism of his former club, who finished the season in third place

“I had to live through a difficult situation, starting the season being under-appreciated and Atletico opened the door to give me the chance to show that I could still be a force,” Suarez said.

“That’s why I’m always going to be grateful to this great club for trusting me,” Suarez said through his tears. 

“Many people have suffered with me, my wife, my children, every day,” he said.

Real came from behind to beat Villarreal 2-1, with the visitors warming up for Wednesday’s Europa League final against Manchester United with an impressive performance.

Atletico had surprisingly fallen behind to Valladolid, who finished bottom of the table and were relegated, when Oscar Plano gave the hosts a shock lead, but with Real also losing to Villarreal – whose winning goal came from Yeremi Pino – then it had looked as though they were going to be spared a dramatic final day tumble off the top of the table.
