Luis Suarez returns: Former Liverpool star has become a leader for Barcelona

first_imgSpanish football expert Graham Hunter joined the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast to preview Tuesday night’s big Champions League clash between Manchester City and Barcelona.Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez returns to England for the first time since his summer departure from Anfield, and Hunter says the Uruguayan has already emerged as a key man for the Spanish giants.Suarez has struck just seven goals in his first 22 games for Barca, but Hunter insists the numbers do not tell the full story.“He must not be judged by his goal tally,” he said. “He is creating goals, earning space.“When Henrik Larsson came to Barcelona from Celtic people didn’t know quite what to expect and they looked at it his goal tally and thought they had bought someone that would just knock the ball in all the time.“What they learned is exactly what they are learning with Suarez, that you have got a team leader, somebody who creates space around him, somebody who says ‘I don’t care if I’m not scoring 35 goals, if I get 15 but the team wins, we win trophies and we are a better unit, that will do for me’.“Suarez has won over the Camp Nou and he was won over Neymar and Messi, which is very important, and that front three is gorgeous to watch.”last_img read more
