Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has said that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) disrupts the flow of games. The Uruguayan criticized the introduction of VAR to Spanish football this term despite benefitting from the system already.

Suarez is not totally against technology adoption in football as he likes the idea of goal line technology but for VAR he feels it disrupts the natural flow of football. When Barcelona clashed with Huesca on Sunday, it ended in 8-2 with victory for the La Liga defending champions. Suarez scored a goal but it was ruled offside. However, on consultation with the VAR the goal was allowed to stand.

There were sensational reports that Barcelona could accede to Liverpool’s supposed interest in Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan left Anfield following the 2014 World Cup and was recently rumoured to be set for a sensational return to the Merseyside post 2018 World Cup in Russia.

That has now be confirmed to be force. Rather latest reports according to Palco 23 are that Suarez and some other Barcelona stars could be getting a bump in wages.

Uruguay international Luis Suarez said that he is disappointed with the result against France and was hoping that his team could do better. He said that they have been let down by some poor defending and that that the absence of Cavani was too much for them.

He said that France has some good players and that they were the better team on the day and that they deserved to progress to the next round. Luis Suarez said that it is the dream of any footballer to play at the World Cup and that he was hoping that this time around they could reach the final. (more…)

The wait is finally over for Javier Mascherano to end his Barcelona goal drought after over 300 games for the Nou Camp side. The Argentine defender broke his duck from the spot against Osasuna last season to spark wild celebrations at the Nou Camp.


Despite the Catalans regularly recording cricket scores against opponents since his arrival in 2010, amazingly he had never managed to find the net himself. But, eventually, his barren run of 319 matches came to an end in the 7-1 La Liga victory at the Nou Camp against Osasuna in April 2017. Denis Suarez was chopped inside the box to win Barcelona a penalty when they were already 5-1 to the good. To the delight of everyone, Mascherano was only too happy to step forward to convert from 12 yards to end his near seven season goalless run. (more…)

Finally Barcelona were able to complete the deal for Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool FC. The Brazilian’s move mirrors that of Luis Suarez who also left the Reds to join the Catalan club years back. Coutinho has admitted that his former teammate played a big role in him deciding against all odds to move to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona has to fork out a whopping £142 million to seal the deal for Coutinho – the third biggest deal in football history behind Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe deals. The 25-year old gets to reunite with Suarez who he played alongside with at Anfield for 18 months. The duo was crucial to Liverpool’s Premier League bid in the 2013/1 season before the Uruguayan left England for Spain.

It has been made clear by the top brass of Barcelona that there is absolutely no possibility of the club disassociating itself from the Spanish top tier.

If Catalonia manages to achieve the status of an independent country which it is battling for at the moment, Barcelona will no longer be a Spanish city.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher opines that Philippe Coutinho’s move to Barcelona is similar to that of Luis Suarez when he wanted to leave years back.

The Uruguayan left the club in 2014 even though he hoped to exit a year earlier. Arsenal met his release clause of £40 million and added just one £1 then but the bid was laughed off at Anfield. Suarez asked for a transfer as he had grown frustrated at the club but the move did not happen.

Coutinho also wants to move to Barcelona even though there is no release clause saga but Liverpool want to retain him to remain competitive this season. Losing the player this late and not getting a suitable replacement on time would derail the dreams of the club this term and Coach Jurgen Klopp is desperate to avoid it. (more…)

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has spoken glowingly of his former club Liverpool.

The Uruguayan left Anfield amid controversy in a big money move to the Nou Camp in 2015. The former Ajax striker says he never imagined that he would play for the Reds, adding that it was a dream come true and a stepping stone to great things in his career.

Suarez was a real sensation in the Netherlands so Liverpool brought him to England. His 31 goals in 2014 almost gave Liverpool a Premier League title until a small slip gifted another team the title. In his three and a half year with Liverpool, Suarez netted 82 times in 133 games.

“When I was little, Liverpool was one of the biggest clubs in Europe and was renowned throughout the world. So when I found out about the club’s interest in me I was never in doubt because it’s the dream for any player; I never imagined that I would get the chance to play there,” Suarez said. (more…)

In terms of scoring goals and providing assists to his teammates, Luis Suarez has had yet another impressive season as a player of Barcelona as the Uruguayan attacker scored 29 goals and made 13 assists which is not as high as his previous season of 2015-16 where he scored 40 goals and created 16 goal-scoring chances to his partners but it´s still a remarkable season as far as contributions goes for Luis Suarez.

However, despite everything that Luis Suarez did in this season to help Barcelona win major pieces of silverware it just wasn’t enough as the Spanish club was knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals after losing to Juventus.

To make matters even worse, Real Madrid are in the finals of the UEFA Champions League and have a realistic chance of emerging as victorious as well as also already having lifted the La Liga title and being crowned as the latest champions of Spain. (more…)

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has branded Luis Suarez as the best No 9 in the world.

The forward has been in excellent scoring form. He has been able to tide over the absence of Lionel Messi in some key matches. Suarez finished last season as top scorer in the Spanish La Liga. He scored an astonishing 40 goals last season and finished five ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in the goals tally. This time around, there has been no reduction in his form, as he has 24 league goals. Suarez is only behind his Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi, who has 27 league goals.

After having cost the club an incredible £ 72 million when he made the switch from Liverpool in the summer of 2014, the striker is feeling a lot of pressure in order to deliver goals on a regular basis. Many will feel that he has been a better purchase for the club than Neymar, who has managed only nine league goals this season. (more…)
