"I had to live through a difficult situation, starting the season being under-appreciated and Atletico opened the door to give me the chance to show that I could still be a force," Suarez said.

"That's why I'm always going to be grateful to this great club for trusting me," Suarez said through his tears. 

"Many people have suffered with me, my wife, my children, every day," he said.  

"I've been in football for so many years and I think this is the year they have endured the most." 

The title is "another proof that Atletico had a great season," he said. 

"We showed that we were the most consistent team," Suarez said. 

He said the title, which follows four he won with Barcelona, "is special, because of everything that some of us had to endure."

"Here are my statistics: five league titles in seven seasons. And here is Luis Suarez," he said.
