Former striker Luis Suarez admits life is harder at Barcelona

The Uruguayan was discussing the differences between the the Premier League and La Liga.

Former Anfield favourite Luis Saurez has admitted he’s finding life more difficult at Barcelona than he did at Liverpool.

The Uruguayan forward said he had now settled in at the Nou Camp but that he was finding it harder to beat defenders in Spain than he did in England.

Suarez has struggled to replicate the scintillating form he showed for us last season when he helped us fight to an unexpected, but ultimately heartbreaking 2nd place finish.

Speaking to a Spanish newspaper, and reported by the Liverpool Echo, Suarez was asked about the differences between playing in the two leagues.

“In the Premier and at Liverpool teams rarely close up shop. You always have space to move in, in which to take on opponents.

“The defenders are strong, quicker, more corpulent… I was used to them. Here they are more skilful, they complement each other and play tighter together. They know how much danger Barça can cause and so it can be quite difficult sometimes.”

Though, as we all know too well, you’d expect a forward of Saurez’s quality to be able to break through any defence once he gets used to it, as he showed numerous times last season for the Reds and has been so hard to replace this season…
