Suarez 'feels special' at Barca

Luis Suarez on Friday said he was delighted after signing his lucrative contract extension at Barcelona through to June 2021.

"I am very happy. It's what I wanted and the club too and so I feel huge satisfaction," Suarez told Barca TV, saying the deal showed the "recognition of the club" to his contribution since signing from Liverpool in 2014.

"Every game with Barcelona is special," added the 29-year-old.

The Uruguay international striker's new deal features a 200 million-euro (£167 million, $208 million) release clause.

Suarez has scored 97 goals in just 116 appearances since arriving from Anfield.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu was among several of the club's top brass as Suarez put pen to paper.

The Catalan club were keen to tie down their centre forward who forms part of an explosive attacking triumvirate with Lionel Messi and Neymar.
