Ronald Koeman, newly appointed to the head of Barça, told Luis Suarez that he was not counting on him.
The revolution continues at FC Barcelona, ten days after the humiliation experienced against Bayern Munich (8-2). While Quique Setien and Eric Abidal have already taken the door, replaced by Ronald Koeman and Roman Planes as coach and sporting director, other departures should follow within the Barcelona workforce.
According to RAC 1 radio, the new Barça coach has indeed called Luis Suarez on Monday morning to tell him that he was not in his plans for the coming season. The Uruguayan, who arrived at Barça in the summer of 2014 and scorer of 198 goals in 283 matches in all competitions with the Blaugrana, still has one year of contract with the Barcelona club and is therefore asked to find a new club.
The first of a long series ?
“Nobody told me that they were no longer counting on me,” said the former Red, this weekend at El Pais , ensuring to be ready to sit on the bench. “I want the best for the team and my intention is to stay,” he continued, adding: “Throughout my career, I have accepted to be on the bench. I still think I have a lot to contribute but I would have no problem if that was the case here next season. “
Luis Suarez, who is announced as one of Inter Miami’s priority targets, is unlikely to be the only Barcelona player to walk out. Jordi Alba , Sergio Busquets , Ivan Rakitic or Gerard Piqué could also be invited to leave the Catalan club.
