Luis Suarez has all but confirmed that he’ll be staying at Atletico Madrid for at least another season.
The striker signed a two-year deal when he joined Atletico from Barcelona last summer and has been instrumental in the former’s title win in LaLiga Santander, scoring 21 goals.
“Yes, I’m sure [I’ll stay],” Suarez told Movistar.
“Atletico welcomed me from the minute I arrived… how they treated me.
“I asked the club if there was room for me on the museum wall to make history at Atletico.”
The Uruguayan could be seen in tears calling his family on the pitch in Valladolid after winning LaLiga Santander with Atletico.
“My wife is the one who’s been with me in the day to day [at Atletico],” he said.
“It was very hard last summer, when you have three children and a settled life.
“The suffering was tough.
“[My wife] knows how much I’ve worked to be able to keep showing that I can remain at the highest level.
“My children spend their lives with their friends, at school… They knew that it was a change [to move to Atletico].
“They knew that I was really up [for playing for Atletico].
“They were tears of joy.”
