Barcelona Miss Suarez Like Real Madrid Miss Ronaldo – Diego Forlan

Barcelona’s first season without Luis Suarez has been reminiscent of Real Madrid’s struggles after Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus, says Diego Forlan.

The former Atletico Madrid and Uruguay forward also believes Barca’s decision to oust Suarez had nothing to do with his on-field performances.

Barca trail Atletico by five points in the Spanish title race, while only Lionel Messi has scored more goals in La Liga this season than Suarez.

On Barca’s decision to sell Suarez, Forlan told AFP: “Of course it was a huge mistake. As soon as Barcelona said he was for sale, I knew it was a mistake.

“All I know is it wasn’t about his performances on the pitch.

“I messaged him and said, ‘Listen, you’re not the first and you won’t be the last. You have to keep being yourself. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone so just keep doing it at Atletico Madrid.’

“But when you get punished for something you didn’t do, when you’re still in great shape, playing well, of course your aim is going to be to show that you can still perform.”
