In the summer of 2014, Suarez arrived in Barcelona from Liverpool and has since scored as many as 198 goals in 283 games for the club.
He won four Spanish league titles, four Spanish Cup titles, the Champions League, the European Super Cup, and the Club World Cup, with Barcelona.
Suarez burst into tears at the farewell from Barcelona and received messages of support from many footballers. The loudest was Messi, who condemned the club for Suarez’s departure.
