Barcelona defender Pique caused outrage in Catalonia last month.
He said that the players were ready to take pay cuts to adjust Neymar back at Barcelona.
However, the board failed to oblige. Pique said last month: “We didn’t stump up money.
“What we said to the president was whether we could change our contracts because we knew there was a Financial Fair Play issue… so we said to the president, rather than earn something in year one, we could earn it in year two or three or four.”
However, Suarez has calmed down the situation by saying Pique did not know what he was saying.
“When Geri speaks, sometimes you have to take everything with tweezers,” Uruguayan Suarez told Sport.
“He has a lot of work and a lot of experience in making statements. In this case he knows and is aware that the players were totally out in the case of Ney.
“We were willing to welcome him or any player who wants to come, but always oblivious to the case.”
Suarez said: “[His integration has been] spectacular, sometimes things are misunderstood. Both Leo and I and Geri himself welcomed him a year earlier, said he was a great player and was one of the best in the world.
“He came from being world champion and we already praised him. Then we didn’t know what was going to happen to him, we weren’t sure he was coming this year.
“We treat him as one more. It is also true that some have more affinity with some partners than others; in his case he gets along very well with the French players.”
