'He's forcing us to fire him' – Arsenal flop Denis Suarez blasted by Celta Vigo for 'wanting to harm club' | The SunJuly 28, 2022
FORMER Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has been accused by the Celta Vigo president of "forcing us to fire him".
The 28-year-old Spaniard joined Celta from Barcelona in 2019 following a season-long loan spell with the Gunners.
He has played 104 times for the LaLiga outfit, scoring four goals, but the club are keen to move him on due to his £97,000-a-year contract.
And Celta president Carlos Mourino has now revealed that Suarez has been handed four different offers which would see him earn more money, but he is refusing to leave.
As reported by Mundo Deportivo, Mourino said in a press conference on Thursday: "We have given Denis Suarez four offers that increased his salary and all of them were rejected because they benefited RC Celta.
"He is forcing us to fire him to harm the club. I will not consent to it.

"There are many players in LaLiga who have not been called up and nothing has happened.
"Denis Suarez is the only one who has denounced his club for this because he does not want to help, he wants to harm the club.
He went on to add: "He has been carrying out a great smear campaign against the club for a year on all its social networks, in unconfirmed information, in opinions that speak of his close circle."
And Mourino rounded off the rant by saying that Suarez has no future at Celta Vigo.

He stated this is because Suarez "has betrayed Celta, he has been lying for a year and I will never allow that".
Suarez's Celta contract expires next summer, meaning he will leave for free at the end of the 2022/23 season.
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.
