Luis Suarez opens up on Barcelona’s 4-0 thrashing vs Liverpool

Barca crash out of Champions League

The first-leg of the 2019 Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Liverpool saw Luis Suarez’s side take a 3-0 lead at the Nou Camp.

Suarez would be the one to open the scoring that night.

After Liverpool failed to score an away goal, they knew that they would have to win the return leg at least 3-0 to even send the clash to extra-time.

What seemed like an impossible task got a small glimmer of hope seven minutes into the second-leg, though, after Divock Origi put Jurgen Klopp’s side 1-0 up.

Georginio Wijnaldum then came off the bench to score a second-half brace, before Origi bagged his second and Liverpool’s 4th late on.

Suarez’s worst moments of his life

Liverpool would go on to face Tottenham in the CL final, winning 2-0 and earning their 6th Champions League trophy.

Meanwhile, Barcelona had once again let a big lead slip in the CL.

Now, in a recent interview, Barcelona and ex-Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has opened up on that defeat:

Suarez mentions how he wanted to disappear from the world and not even take his kids to school:

“The days after back in Barcelona  were the worst moments of my life and career along with the 2014 World Cup, I wanted to disappear from the world.

“I didn’t want to take my children to school. Everyone could see I was in a very bad way. I had days I didn’t want to do anything, they were very difficult moments.

“We are Barcelona and we thought we’d have two or three chances to score, but we became nervous, we gave stupid passes away, we didn’t show the right attitude.

“When the first goal came we didn’t know how to react, we knew we had really messed up. After the game in the dressing room no-one could say anything. There was sadness, bitterness and disappointment because we knew we’d given an awful image.” As quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
