Luis Suarez planning gesture to Barcelona board when they face Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid star Luis Suarez is not going to celebrate if he nets against Barcelona next month.

But he will send a message to the board who so brutally axed him from the Catalan outfit .

Suarez's six successful years at the Nou Camp came to an end abruptly this summer when new boss Ronald Koeman ended his time at the club out of the blue.

And the Uruguayan has not forgiven the club for his forced exit.

Suarez said: “I will not shout ‘goal’ but I will point to those responsible. I spent six years there and felt I had earned respect.

“I deserved to know my fate before I found out from the press.

“Also the coach Ronald Koeman came to me saying that he doesn’t count on me.

"But that was after the leadership of the club had already said there was going to be a change of players.

“That raises doubts about whether it was the coach’s decision or a directive from above.”

Suarez's exit and subsequent move to Atletico surprised the footballing world.

And former Barcelona star Rivaldo thinks his old club should have made an effort to replace the 33-year-old before the transfer window closed this week.

“Barcelona should have made more of an effort to sign a new striker to replace Suarez, especially since they have allowed a player to leave who is still extraordinary and who clearly has the qualities to still be key," he told Betfair.
