According to Suarez, Atletico didn’t deserve to suffer

Luis Suarez has admitted that he did not expect to “suffer” so much at Atletico Madrid amid the intense LaLiga title race that lasted until the final day. Atletico Madrid are on the verge of winning their first domestic title since 2013-14 as they sit two points clear of opponents Real Madrid with only one game left to play. The Uruguayan’s goals have been crucial in the Rojiblancos’ rise to the top of the league table, with his latest effort completing a dramatic comeback against Osasuna on Sunday. Still, he admits it has been a tough road. The Uruguayan forward, who joined Atletico last summer from Barcelona, ​​told reporters of the 2-1 win over Osasuna: “I don’t think we deserve to suffer as much as we did because we had one of the best times of the season.”

The Rojiblancos must prepare to win LaLiga

“We missed a lot of chances, including me. We have to get used to suffering to win LaLiga, and that’s what happened. Everyone says suffering is Atletico’s thing. I didn’t think there was as much suffering like this! But anyway, the effort, the sacrifice that this team makes, a lot of people are working towards our goals. Now it’s time to enjoy it, stay calm and get ready for the week ahead.” Barca reportedly sold Suarez over doubts about whether he would deliver the goods in his mid-thirties, despite his 21-goal contribution in the 2019-20 season. However, the 34-year-old has since proven that he still has a lot to offer at the highest level with Atletico, scoring 20 goals in his first 37 outings across all competitions for the club.

All of his goals have come in LaLiga, along with three assists he provided for his teammates. Atletico will be crowned champion of Spain if they beat Real Valladolid at Jose Zorrilla stadium on Saturday, and Real Madrid set to be in action at home at Villarreal on the same day. However, Diego Simeone’s people can still be pipped by their opponents if they slip against Valladolid due to their inferior H2H record, with Suarez well aware of what is at stake. “It’s in our hands,” he added. “It is the most important game of the season. We’ve had a lot, but this is so important in achieving our goal.”
