Former Juventus and Uruguay international launches a scathing verbal attack on Luis Suarez

He's rarely out of the news.

Ever since leaving Liverpool for Barcelona, Luis Suarez seem like he has made a deliberate effort to stay away from being a figure of controversy - Juanfran might disagree with that though after the Uruguyan kicked out at him during Barca's 2-1 win against Atletico this week - but former Juventus, Roma and Napoli forward Daniel Fonseca has launched a blistering verbal attack on his fellow Uruguayan.


The row between the two men originated from an interview that Suarez gave where he stated that Fonseca still owes him 20 per cent of the fee from his transfer from Nacional to Groningen in 2006.

Fonseca, now a football agent, didn't hold back with his reply to the former Ajax and Liverpool striker.

"He is a child who shows that he has psychological problems, for sure, we know that.  That’s why he is seeing a psychologist, but it’s not giving him the effect he desired He should change his psychologist, or see a psychiatrist instead. To count you need two fingers, because the kid does not know how to count".


"The story goes because one blessed day three friends from the youth team called me, and said something uncomfortable is happening with Luis. I had to tell him something very uncomfortable to this kid, and to the day I die I will not say what it was. It was a very uncomfortable truth. He did not accept it, and it did not sit well with him", Fonceca adds.

"I would prefer to have friends who tell me the truth instead of lies. So with a few words, I want him to tell the truth and not to dirty me by saying I owe him $200,000. Scoundrel! If he has courage, he will say the uncomfortable thing I had to tell him. That’s the real reason this unpresentable character does not have the courage to talk, and has hid these past six years".
