Suarez joins Atletico: 13 trophies, 283 video games and 198 targets – ahead’s Barca profession in numbers

Luis Suarez’s trophy-laden association with Barcelona came to an end on Wednesday as he joined LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid.

Suarez celebrated countless titles after swapping Premier League giants Liverpool for Barcelona in 2014, while establishing himself as a Blaugrana great.

During his time at Camp Nou, Suarez formed part of Barca’s famed ‘MSN’ alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar before it was broken up three years ago.

As Suarez prepares for life in the Spanish capital, we look at the 33-year-old’s Barca career in numbers.

283 – The Uruguay international was a mainstay in Barca’s starting XI, amassing just under 300 appearances.

198 – Only two players in Barca’s history have scored more goals than Suarez – Messi (634) and Cesar (232). Of those goals, 147 were in LaLiga from just 191 matches. He also netted 25 Champions League goals.
