Luis Suarez has denied that his telephone gesture celebration was directed at Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman.

The ex-Barcelona man departed Camp Nou in acrimonious circumstances in the summer of 2020. Before leading Atletico’s successful charge to the La Liga title last term. Koeman reportedly told Suarez he was surplus to requirements at Barcelona in summer 2020 through a 60-second phone call.

Atletico Madrid star, Luis Suarez provided an assist then scored the second goal for the team. Which prompted the phone gesture as Atletico beat Barcelona 2-0 on Saturday night. That heaped the pressure on Koeman, whose side are 10th in La Liga and have lost their opening two Champions League games.

However, Suarez has insisted that there was no malice in his celebration, telling reporters: “It was for the people who know that I have the same number and that I am still using the same phone. “It was not for Koeman, not at all. If you want to know… I had been joking with my children that I would do that.”

Since, joining Atletico, he has scored 25 goals for the team, while appearing on 47 occasions. In International football, Suarez is the highest goal-scorer for Uruguay, with 62 goals to his name in 122 appearances. Suarez’s strike against Barcelona was his fifth strike from 10 games across all competitions this season.
