During the summer of 2020, Luis Suarez was pushed out by FC Barcelona. Now at Atlético, the Uruguayan striker estimated that the coronavirus had caused his departure from Catalonia.

While Barça completely missed out on its 2019-2020 season, Josep Bartomeu has decided to revolutionize the workforce of Ronald Koeman. With this in mind, several players were pushed towards the exit in the summer of 2020, including Luis Suarez. While he was transferred to Atlético , El Pistolero explained that the coronavirus had been one of the main factors of his departure from FC Barcelona.

Luis Suarez points the finger at the coronavirus

“My departure from FC Barcelona? Obviously this could have been avoided. This is no excuse, but the pandemic happened, the club had very high salaries for the players and if they didn't cut them it was going to be very difficult because they didn't have ticket sales. The clubs are also supported by ticketing, by selling products, by tourism, with all that and without selling tickets, it was difficult to keep things going, ”Luis Suarez said in an interview with ESPN.
