Arsenal flop Denis Suarez accuses Celta Vigo chief of lying about contract offers as he goes to war with club
FORMER Arsenal midfielder Denis Suarez has accused Celta Vigo of lying about contract offers as a bitter row with the club continues.
The 28-year-old Spaniard watched Celta president Carlos Mourino’s press conference on Thursday in which he claimed Suarez had “betrayed” the LaLiga outfit and that he was “forcing us to fire him”.
Mourino said Suarez had rejected four separate offers which would have seen him secure a wage increase – insisting the player did so in order to “harm the club”.
Now Suarez has hit back at those comments with a lengthy rant on social media in which he accused Mourino of saying he was going to turn the Balaidos [Celta Vigo fans] against him.
He said: “Hello! Today the president has given a press conference about my situation and, since you are always there supporting me, I want to clarify some of his false statements.
“It’s been many months since he threatened me that: ‘I’m going to make sure that Balaidos whistles for you’. It’s time to answer.”
He continued: “I never received such an offer from Celta. I invite you to publicly show the document of that offer and my refusal. There is none.”
The dispute between Suarez and Celta began after the club accused the Spaniard of taking between £33,000 and £41,000 for the sale of Bryan Bugarin to Real Madrid in 2021.
Suarez and Bugarin share an agency, but the ex-Arsenal man denies taking any sort of fee for the transfer.
He said: “I have never sold a player from Celta or from any other team.

“I invite you to prove this statement with the relevant documents, as well as the income of the money he speaks of.”
He then finished by stating he still wishes to play for Celta in the future.
Suarez said: “I clarify: You have heard me offer solutions without any agency involved to the club to fix everything and be able to fulfill my dream, which is none other than to wear the Celta shirt. It still is…”
The midfielder’s Celta contract expires next summer, meaning he will leave for free at the end of the 2022/23 season.
He has played 104 times for the club, scoring four goals, but Celta are keen to move him on due to his £97,000-a-year contract.
Earlier in his career, the midfielder was a highly-rated talent at Barcelona and played 71 times for the European giants, netting eight times.
He also made his international debut for Spain in 2016, but has not been capped since.
