Barcelona boss Luis Enrique says Luis Suarez’s attitude doesn’t worry him, after the forward reacted badly to being taken off on Saturday.
Luis Suarez appeared to be upset at being subbed against Granada, after he had scored one and had a helping hand in the other two in the Catalan club’s 3-1 win, and his manager has struggled to relate to his forward’s reaction, saying that when he played, he never cared about playing every minute – but says he isn’t worried by Suarez’ attitude.
“I'm not looking at what took place off the field,” he told Sky Sports.
“When I played I didn't want to be involved in every minute.
“In the kickabouts and in matches where the substitutes were playing, I wasn't bothered about playing then.”
The Spanish coach also spoke about his side’s second leg Copa del Rey tie coming up against Villarreal, saying that he side will look to finish the job as they head in to the game 3-1 up on aggregate.
“Barca always go out to win the games and the objective in the return leg of the cup is to beat Villarreal,” he added.
“If we win the game then there is no possibility of a surprise.
“We are in top condition considering the stage of the season and the minutes already played. To score will be more than important for us.”
Luis Suarez has picked up in form over the last few weeks, and has now scored 10 goals in all competitions for Barcelona, as well as provided 13 assists for his teammates.
