Ex-international hitman accuses Luis Suarez of having ‘mental problems’

Posted by

Speaking on Uruguayan radio, former national team hitman and player representative Daniel Fonseca has lashed out at Luis Suarez.

The two men are currently embroiled in a dispute following allegations made by Suarez that Fonseca, who previously represented the player, owed him 20 percent of his transfer to Eredivisie side Groningen from Nacional de Montevideo back in 2006.

Fonseca, responding to the Barcelona superstar’s comments, has accused the attacker of having mental problems, and of being annoyed that he wasn’t rewarded as he initially hoped he’d be in Europe.

“He’s lying,” Fonseca said, speaking on Las voces del Futbol, on 1010 AM radio in his homeland [quotes via AS], “because he’s a kid who’s demonstrating that he has psychological problems.

“We know that.”

Fonseca proceeded to offer Suarez some medical advice. “You have to change,” he continued. “Go to a psychologist or a psychiatrist.”

From Groningen, Suarez moved on to Ajax, where he scored 81 goals in 110 outings, winning the Eredivisie in 2011 and the Dutch Cup the season before.

He became a superstar at Liverpool, where he won the League Cup in 2012, before moving on to Barcelona in 2014.
