Atlético Madrid won another very important game this Thursday, when defeating SD Eibar 2-1 as visitors. Both goals from the team coached by Diego Simeone were scored by Luis Suárez, the Uruguayan striker who was axed from FC Barcelona on September 2020 in a polemic decision taken by ex-president Josep María Bartomeu.
Suárez has now scored 11 goals on 14 La Liga matches, being the top-scorer of the competition with Lionel Messi, who has the same number of goals. Incredibly, Barça could have kept the two top strikers with them, but considered that Suárez was no longer needed and preferred to let him out for free to Atlético Madrid.
Simeone is enjoying the gift made by Barcelona and taking advantage of him. Even though he was always respectful about what they decided with him, Suárez sends a clear message to Barcelona and those who toke the decision to kick him, every time he plays and scores.
Against Eibar, the attacker aged 33 also scored his goal number 500 in his professional career. At Barcelona, he is also one of the historical all-time scorers. Despite all these achievements, at the Catalan side they considered this were not enough to maintain him. During his career, Suárez played for Nacional former side, FC Groningen, Ajax and Liverpool.
