Luis Suarez got his dream debut in Atletico Madrid.
The Uruguayan forward came on as the 75th minute and then mayhem followed – an assist, two goals, one denied penalty from bar and hitting the post once – all in 19 minutes.
This is the same man Barcelona bosses, Bartomeu in particular decided to sell for free!
Suarez’ new strike partner was delighted with the contribution from Luis and spoke highly of him.
“I like Luis Suarez. It’s really good, one of us bites and the other kicks,” Costa told reporters after the game.
“I don’t know why Barca let him leave, but it’s up to them.
“He has a warrior spirit to win titles, hopefully we can give that to the fans.”
“The truth is that the seasons where we won titles we always had great players like [David] Villa, Adrian [Lopez], and Raul Garcia,” he added.
“Three important players came out and another three came in who could play in any team. There is fair competition. You have to compete.”
A Costa-Suarez partnership with Felix to add weight could prove pivotal for Atletico Madrid who are trying to refigure their front and backline after a couple of disappointing seasons compared to their usual standards.
