Luis Suarez has signed this year his best season as a professional. Scorer, Golden Boot and top assistant in La Liga. 59 goals and 26 assists in 52 games. Some amazing numbers for a player who adapted perfectly in the second season with Barça. Only Leo Messi has scored more goals in a single season in the history of the club. Now the season is over, the Uruguayan reviewed in an interview with Jorge Valdano and also spoke about his feelings before signing for Barça. This is the advance of the full interview to be broadcast tonight.

Adaptation

"Due to my way of playing and my features, I thought it was impossible to sign for Barcelona."

"Playing for Barça was a dream. It was where my wife was living. Our first daughter was born here. It was perfect coming here."

"At Ajax the same happened to me. A lot of tiki-taka, very feet game, and I had a more aggressive style. But you have to end up adapting."

Mentality

"I have never given up. Since childhood I have always passed so many things and I never surrender."

FIFA sanction

"What hurt me most was that I was fired out of the World Cup and that I was not allowed to enter stadiums."
