Luis Suarez leaves pitch in tears after Atletico Madrid fans share touching banner following final match for club

LUIS SUAREZ bid an emotional farewell to Atletico Madrid on Sunday in a 1-1 draw with Sevilla.

The striker, 35, will leave this summer after two years at the Wanda Metropolitano.


He was substituted in the 64th minute and applauded the Atletico fans as he walked off.

But the Uruguayan could not contain his emotions as he watched on from the substitutes bench – and covered his face with a shirt as he began to cry.

Suarez also burst into tears in May last year when he spoke to loved ones on FaceTime after Atletico won La Liga.

And he was also visibly upset when he said goodbye to Barcelona in 2020 – having enjoyed tremendous success at Camp Nou.

And although he has not been a regular for Atletico this season Suarez still has 12 goals to his name, sparking transfer interest.

There has been a lot of speculation about Suarez's future with the striker keen on a return to Barcelona.
