Speaking with El Pais, Suarez brought up the example of Real Madrid’s response to losing to Ajax to imply that Barcelona can do the same:
“I remember that in Madrid, the year that Ajax eliminated them from the Champions League [in 2019], they said that Kroos was finished, they wanted to retire Modric and they said that Ramos was a disaster.“
“The following year, everything went better for them and again they formed a legendary team.”
Suarez then tied it all back together to Barcelona’s rebuild, and his role in it:
“Throughout my career I have accepted to be a substitute,” Suarez said. “I would have no problem in being one again. The competition is healthy and if the coach considers that I should do it from the bench I have no problem.
“I would like to stay at Barca as long as they want to count on me. I want to contribute. I have felt the support of the people since I arrived and that motivates me a lot.
“No one at the club has told me that they want to be without my services. I want the best for the team and my intention is to continue.”
