Uruguayan striker, Luis Suarez in a recent interview reveals how the squad is trying to help Ansu Fati feel at home in the dressing home. One of the revelations at Barcelona so far this season has been the emergence of 16-year-old forward and Suarez made clear that the squad have done their best to make him feel at home.
“He came to train a day before playing the game against Real Betis. We noticed him and we were all surprised by his age,” he stated.
“I think that when it comes to entering the dressing room, the more experienced players have to support him.
“Don’t change the way you play. Logically, he looks at you in a special way, but we try to make jokes to make him feel more comfortable.”
Suarez also talked about Neymar’s failed move to Barcelona as he was one of those who wanted the Brazilian return to Camp Nou this summer, but eventually, the Blaugrana were unable to agree with Paris Saint-Germain. The 32-year-old thought that the Brazilian forward was making a bad decision when he opted to leave in 2017, though he stated that Neymar did his all to force through a move to Barcelona.
“We talked about it at the time,” Suarez told Fox Sports Radio in Argentina when asked about Neymar’s decision to leave in 2017.
“We told him that there would be no place better than at Barcelona. But it’s his decision and he chose that. Now he did everything possible to return.”
Antoine Griezmann made the move to the Camp Nou this summer and, despite a largely underwhelming start to life as a Barcelona player, the Uruguayan has highlighted the Frenchman’s humility.
“He is integrating [into the squad] in the best way possible. He’s showing the squad that he is very humble. Here we are all the same,” Suarez stated.
