Luis Suarez for Esport3 [x]
On his punishment after the Chiellini incident 
“I felt I had ruined my career. At first, I did not want anyone to know anything. I locked myself in with my family, but then I reflected, I apologized and felt liberated. But I was then afraid that I could cast [Barcelona] back because of the repercussion of the incident; I knew that could happen…”
"[Following his Barcelona signing] I had to work in the gym, avoiding the cameras and paparazzi. They were difficult times because I felt no longer like a professional, like I was doing something wrong. I was hiding. But all that happened to me because of the mistake that I made, so I assume and accept all criticism.” 
On his dream being fulfilled 
“When Pere [Guardiola, his agent] called me to tell me about the offer from Barcelona and that it was done, I began to cry. I could not believe all the support that the club was offering… I felt so happy for the commitment the club showed me.” 
On his career 
"Shortly before I was with Ajax, I declined an offer of Brazilian football because I knew I wanted to come to Europe. Once I was with Ajax, I began learning." 
“Liverpool gave me a name, but Ajax was my school. I learned a lot there, technique and movements to do at the front.”  
“I am now fulfilling the dream of playing on the pitch where I always wanted to play. It also provides me the option to stay and live in Barcelona, with the love and support of my family. If I have the opportunity to retire here with the club, it would be the perfect career.”
On El Clasico 
“I am anxious and eager to play, but not obsessed. I can’t let myself imagine playing it because things like that can play tricks on you… But I do imagine myself with all my teammates, preparing for the game." 
"It’s not in my personality to ask the coach let me play that game. I do not dare tell Luis Enrique that I want to play at the Bernabeu.”
