Luis Suarez wants to end his career at Barcelona amidst contract talks
Star Uruguayan and Barcelona striker has revealed that he wants to retire at Nou Camp amidst his contract extension talks.
The 32-year-old is reaching the twilight of his magnificent career and his current contract at Catalan ends in 2021. The striker has spoken that he wishes to sign a new long-term deal at the club, that would make sure his career ends in Spain.
When asked about whether he would retire at Barcelona, Suarez said: “Yes. Obviously few ever get to believe that is possible, but I think it’s the desire of any player.
“To finish at the best club in the world would be the greatest thing. But that will be difficult as very few have achieved it before.”
The Uruguayan has already 16 goals this season and has been part of the setup since 2014. He states that he is experienced enough to know that playing football and criticism always go hand in hand.
He added: “Criticism is constantly the order of the day.
“And more so here in Barcelona with the expectations being so high.
“You know what it is. Everyone knows that the requirement is to deliver every three days. I go one game without a goal and that’s it. You already have doubters. You have to live with that all the time.
“The criticism does not hurt me though because I know how old I am, I know what I have achieved. The criticism of the journalists or of other people does not hurt.”
Barcelona face Valencia at Camp Nou this Sunday as they seek to pull away in the La Liga title race.
