Suarez: No contract concern

Luis Suarez isn’t worried about his Barcelona contract as he believes the club recognise his contribution, and talked Lionel Messi.

Suarez’s attacking colleagues Neymar and Lionel Messi have either had their contracts renewed or will have soon and the Uruguay international was asked if he felt he should get the same treatment.

“I have a contract. I haven’t been told anything but I’m not worried, because I know the club value my performance,” Mundo Deportivo quotes Suarez as saying.

Messi meanwhile has announced his retirement from international football but Suarez believes he’ll have second thoughts.

“Leo’s fine, he’s enjoying his holiday, but he’s eager to start playing. It was a shame what happened in the Copa America, but he has personality and always leads from the front. What he needs is support,” Suarez said, Messi having missed a penalty in the shootout in the final.

“I hope he doesn’t leave the national team. As a friend and football fan. There was a lot of talk that Spain wanted him to play in the youth set-up but he chose Argentina and his love for his country is indisputable. It’s true what happened was difficult but I think he’ll reconsider.”
