‘It was a joke!’ – Alba slams Barcelona’s decision to sell Suarez to Atletico

The Spanish full-back thinks his employers were wrong to sell the prolific striker to a direct rival last summer

Jordi Alba has branded Barcelona’s decision to sell Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid as “a joke” while admitting his ex-team-mate has “shut a lot of mouths” at Wanda Metropolitano.

Suarez completed a €6 million move to Atletico from Barca last summer, bringing to an end his trophy-laden six-year career at Camp Nou.

The Uruguayan was deemed surplus to requirements in Catalunya due to his age, but the 34-year-old proved he is still sharp as a tack in front of goal by firing the Los Rojoblancos to their first La Liga title in seven years last term.
