Atletico had to come from behind to beat Valladolid 2-1, all thanks to Angel Correa and Luis Suarez for a massive win. Diego Simeone’s side are 2020/2021 La Liga Santander Champions, whiles Valladolid are relegated to LaLiga Smart bank.
Real Madrid won but missed out on title, like Atletico, came from behind to win against Villarreal.
Luis Suarez couldn’t hide his emotions after helping Atletico Madrid win the LaLiga Santander title on Saturday.
The Uruguayan scored Atletico’s second on the day, clinching the win over Real Valladolid and the title with his 21st strike of the season. All of this comes after he was kicked out at Barcelona last summer.
“It’s tough,” Suarez said to Movistar after the game, fighting back tears. “The situation I had to live through, the way I was looked down on, but Atletico opened the door for me.
“A lot of people have suffered with me – my wife, my children. Day by day, they are the ones who have suffered the most from my many years in football.”
Despite the complications, Suarez is proud of the season he and his Atletico teammates have had.
“We’ve had a great year,” Suarez added. “Despite the difficulties, we were the most consistent team and we’re the champions.
“In the first half of the season we had an efficiency that wasn’t normal.”
Concluding, Suarez said that Lionel Messi “will be happy, because we are friends”.
