Luis Suarez has revealed that he became emotional, after Barcelona insisted they still wanted to sign him, following his scandalous 2014 World Cup.

The Uruguay international was a Liverpool player when he travelled to Brazil for the tournament, but was already linked with a move to the La Liga giants.

Suarez was sent home from the World Cup, after he bit Giorgio Chiellini in a group stage match against Italy. He received a hefty suspension from club and international football from FIFA, which left his fearing his move to Barca would be called off.

“Pere Guardiola called to say I should take it easy, and that Barca still wanted me. Zubi [Andoni Zubizarreta] also called,” he revealed to El Periodico.

“I remember that after I spoke to Andoni I could not stop crying because I could not believe they still wanted me. Barca were a great motivation to bounce back.”
