    Barcelona 1-1 Real Madrid: Late Sergio Ramos goal cancels out Luis Suarez header in El Clasico draw

    Luis Suarez saw his chances of winning El Clasico for Barcelona snatched away by a late equaliser by Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

    In what was a disappointing game after so much expectation, both sides failed to produce the flowing football we’ve become used to witnessing in the first half which ended 0-0.

    Lucas Vázquez, who started the game for Madrid in the absence of Gareth Bale who faces a long stint on the sidelines with a knee injury, will feel hard […]

    Luis Suarez faces another international ban after giving the crowd the finger in Uruguay’s 3-1 defeat to Chile

    Luis Suarez may find himself in hot water once again with Fifa after the Barcelona striker gave the finger to the crowd after Uruguay suffered a 3-1 defeat to Chile.

    The crucial World Cup 2018 qualifier went in Chile’s favour and Suarez could not hide his frustration with the result after a masterclass from Alexis Sanchez fired his country to victory.

    Suarez has been banned previously from international football after he was found guilty of biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the […]

    From beast to beauty: How Luis Suarez curbed from his biting issues

    The Uruguayan, who was second in the 2016 top 50, was made to wait for his Barca debut because of his ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini but he has cleaned up his act.

     

    Luis Suarez has not looked back since joining Barcelona. The Uruguay forward won the treble in his debut campaign at the Catalan club and completed a domestic double in his second season, forming a tremendous trident with Lionel Messi and Neymar which saw him bag an incredible 59 […]

    Suarez is great but Messi is the best – Forlan

    Uruguay legend Diego Forlan says that Lionel Messi remains Barcelona’s most important player, arguing that, while his compatriot Luis Suarez is “great”, the Argentine is still “the best” in the world.

    Suarez has gone from strength to strength since joining the Catalan club from Liverpool in 2014, playing a key role in last year’s treble triumph before then firing Luis Enrique’s men to another league title with a staggering 14 goals in the final five rounds of 2015-16.

    In total, the striker […]

    Barcelona respond to Suarez to Manchester United links

    Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has insisted Luis Suarez will not be leaving Camp Nou despite reported interest in the striker from Manchester United.

    Jose Mourinho has been linked with an astronomic €150 million bid for the Uruguayan, who lifted the Pichichi award last season as the top scorer in La Liga.

    But Bartomeu is adamant that his star forward is not going anywhere.

    “We read, we listen, we see this news, but of course, our interest in this particular case is that […]

    I don’t want Aguero to be like Suarez – Guardiola

    Pep Guardiola insists that he does not want Sergio Aguero to take after Luis Suarez as the two strikers prepare to face off in Manchester City’s Champions League encounter with Barcelona.

    Suarez scored a phenomenal 59 goals in 53 appearances as Barca claimed Spain’s domestic double and the Club World Cup last season and is already onto 10 in 14 games this term.

    Those numbers are outstripped by Aguero, whose double in City’s 4-0 win at West Brom on Saturday took him […]

    Suarez is the best striker in the world – Godin

    Atletico Madrid and Uruguay defender Diego Godin declared compatriot Luis Suarez as the best striker in world football today.

    Barcelona forward Suarez, who won the European Golden Shoe for his 40-goal haul in the last campaign, has played alongside Godin in the national team for years.

    Despite both players being caught up in the La Liga title battle, Godin was quick to laud praise on his compatriot for a job well done.

    “He’s the best No. 9 in the world, the best striker,” […]

    I won’t win Ballon d’Or as I’m not marketed right – Luis Suarez

    Barcelona striker Luis Suarez says he has no chance of winning the Ballon d’Or this year because he does not have the marketing required to be named football’s best player.

    Suarez, 29, picked up the European Golden Shoe on Thursday for his 40 league goals last season and is in the running, along with Barca teammate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, to win the Ballon d’Or, which France Football will hand out in December.

    Nobody other than Messi or Ronaldo […]

    Luis Suarez Receives ‘European Golden Boot’ Award After Prolific Season with Barcelona

    Luis Suarez says he’d love to retire at Barcelona after being presented with the European Golden Shoe award for the second time in his career.

    Luis Suárez is golden again. The FC Barcelona striker has collected the Golden Shoe for the 2015/16 season as the leading goalscorer in domestic European football after scoring 40 Liga goals for the Club last year.

    At a special event held at the old Estrella Damm factory in Barcelona at lunchtime on Thursday, the Uruguayan received the […]

    Sanchez’s play similar to Suarez’s – Wenger

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has compared Alexis Sanchez to Barcelona star Luis Suarez and believes the Chilean is becoming a better central striker with every game he plays.

    Wenger has deployed Sanchez in a different role this term following injuries to Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud, choosing the former Barca winger ahead of new signing Lucas Perez.

    Sanchez has impressed in a central position, scoring five goals in his last six games across all competitions, but while Wenger did liken him to […]

  • Luis Suarez beats Lionel Messi, Neymar and Samuel Eto’o to Barcelona record

    Luis Suarez beats Lionel Messi, Neymar and Samuel Eto’o to Barcelona record

    Luis Suarez has made a better start to his Barcelona career than any other attacker in the club’s history.

    The Uruguayan joined from Liverpool in 2014 and made his 100th appearance for the Spanish champions in Saturday’s shock defeat to Alaves.

    But in his first 100 matches Suarez has scored 88 goals, and no other striker in Barcelona’s history has come close to matching that figure.

    In second place is Samuel Eto’o, who had netted 68 times in his first 100 appearances. Third […]
