Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez played a big part in Barcelona’s 3-0 win against the Reds at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night, which put the La Liga giants on the cusp of the Champions League final.
The Uruguay international scored one and assisted one to give the Spanish club a big advantage ahead of the second leg in Anfield next week, and probably surprised a few fans of the Merseyside outfit by the manner of his celebration for the goal.
While some players refuse to go crazy after finding the net against their former employers, it certainly wasn’t the case for the 32-year-old as he looked ecstatic and slid on his knees after beating Alisson in the opposition goal.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson undoubtedly would have been frustrated not to start the game, but he did get his chance early on anyway as he replaced the injured Naby Keita midway through the first half.
He in particular would have been disappointed by the result at the final whistle with the uphill battle they now face to reach a second successive final, but Suarez quickly shook hands with the England international and embraced a player he once shared a dressing room with.
It was a nice touch by the often controversial attacker, who will be hoping to put the job to bed when he makes his return to Anfield on Tuesday.
