Suarez: Why I Was Worried About Playing With Messi & Neymar

FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez has explained why he had his doubts about playing alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar when he first joined the Catalan club.

'Ballon D'Or Loses Value Without Messi There'

Many were surprised when the Blaugrana signed the Uruguayan striker from Liverpool in 2014 as he was not seen as a typical Barca player.

Despite making a slow start to life in Spain, Suarez has gone on to become one of the world's greatest strikers, but even he was worried about how he was going to be utilised.

"When I came to Barcelona, I had Neymar on one side and Lionel Messi on the other," he explained to Otro.

"And I thought, where am I going to play? Where am I going to do my job of running, fighting the defence and looking for open spaces so that the two best players in the world can optimise their space?

"It's all about adjusting in a clever way."

'Real Paying The Price For Selling Ronaldo'

Suarez has scored 161 goals and assisted a further 88 strikes in 216 matches since joining Barca, with whom he has won 12 trophies so far.

Do you consider Suarez among the best forwards in recent history? Let us know in the comments section below.
