Diego Lugano, the West Brom defender, has been speaking to local press ahead of this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Talking about his teammates, the Uruguayan stalwart called Liverpool’s Luis Suarez “a freak”.
Lugano said: “Luis Suarez is a freak. The best player to come out of Uruguay in decades… It’s not [Suarez’s] responsiblilty, nor Cavani’s, but they are our best players.”
Uruguay face England, Italy and Costa Rica in Brazil.
