Luis Suarez has revealed what Ronald Koeaman told him during their phone call that led to his surprise Barcelona exit.
The Uruguayan was surprisingly deemed surplus to requirement when Koeman joined the club last season and he was offloaded to LaLiga rivals
Suarez revealed that the conversation with the Dutch tactician didn't last too long.
"First he told me that I wasn't in his plans, and then he told me that if I didn't get my contract sorted out I was going to play against Villarreal.
"He lacked the personality to tell me clearly if he didn't want me or if it was really the club that didn't want me."
Suarez added that last year was a tough period after Lionel Messi also requested to leave the Camp Nou.
"They were very difficult days because of everything I gave to the club," he added.
"I spoke to Sofia [Suarez's wife] and Leo after the phone call. It was a complicated year due to everything.
"Messi asked to leave and I was being sent away. Both of our families had a very bad time."
