Luis Suarez has insisted that former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi is suffering at Paris Saint-Germain after leaving the Camp Nou in the summer.
Messi was unable to renew his Barcelona contract due to La Liga’s financial regulations and was forced to make his exit from the Spanish club.
The 34-year-old Argentine forward completed a sensational free transfer to PSG, but Messi is still finding his feet in the French capital.
Messi has scored four times and registered three assists in 12 appearances across all competitions for PSG this season.
Suarez has remained close friends with Messi beyond their time at Barcelona and even presented him with his seventh Ballon d’Or award last month.
The 34-year-old Atletico Madrid striker revealed that he still speaks with Messi “every day” and opened up on their “difficult feelings” when they played against one another at the Camp Nou.
However, Suarez also claimed that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner informed him of how he is struggling with the weather conditions while playing for PSG.
“We talk every day, we always try to avoid expectations because we are players and we know how we have to act in those moments, we talk about the games, about the family,” he told TNT Sports.
“He told me that when he is playing in the cold, he suffers a lot and with the snow. You have to get used to what the cold weather there is like, sure.
“It was difficult feelings for us both to face each other at the Camp Nou.
“On the other hand, when we play for Uruguay against Argentina it is different, they are always beautiful games and having Leo as a rival is difficult and complicated.”
PSG are currently top of Ligue 1 and will return to action against Lens at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm UK time.
