Luis Suarez has admitted he ‘did not want to leave the home’ after Barcelona’s 4-0 drubbing at Anfield.
Suarez and co. had celebrated like the Champions League crown they desperately craved was secure after the 3-0 first-leg win.
But, as we all know, things didn’t quite pan out that way as Divock Origi intervened.
The visitors were bullied into submission on Suarez’s old stomping ground.
And the Uruguayan has described in frank terms the devastation of that defeat.
“It was days, weeks, that we who loved to take the kids to school, football, activities, we suffered,” the striker, who scored 82 goals for Liverpool, told Fox Sports Radio, as quoted by the Mirror. “I did not want to leave from home after losing.
“It was very complicated. I really had a bad time, like most of my team-mates.”
The contrast in emotions after that historic night, then, was extraordinary.
Still, Suarez certainly won’t be winning much sympathy for Reds fans, having shown his former club a total lack of respect with nasty challenges and the usual dose of playacting.
