Luis Suárez took to his Instagram account and produced an Insta story where he took aim at those criticsiing him after it was revealed that new FC Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman has told the striker that there is no place for the Uruguayan in his set-up.

"There are people using my name and saying things about me, people that I've had nothing to do with in years. I'll speak for myself when that time comes about". The post was accompanied with the hashtag #notodoesverdad #NotEverythingIsTrue.

The club's third top goalscorer of all time was informed of his situation at Camp Nou some 24 hours before Leo Messi sent the club a burofax stating his interest to leave the Catalan side. It's expected that Suarez will now negotiate an exit from the club that will see an annulling in what remains of his contract.
