Barcelona crashed out of the competition following a remarkable Liverpool comeback and Luis Suarez considers it as the worst moment of his life.
Luis Suarez says that the recent elimination at the hands of Liverpool in the Champions League was the worst moment of his life.
Barcelona headed into the second leg of the Champions League semi-final with a 3-0 lead from Camp Nou. Many expected the game to be just a formality. However, the footballing gods had other ideas as Liverpool staged a comeback for the ages.
The Reds came out of the blocks quickly. A brace from Divock Origi and another Georginio Wijnaldum quick-fire brace saw Liverpool book a place in the final. Jurgen Klopp’s men would go on to win the trophy.
And Luis Suarez admits that the defeat left a bitter taste in his mouth. As reported by TalkSport, the striker said that he did not want to do anything after the defeat.
“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.”
Luis Suarez admits that he did not see it coming.
“I didn’t see it because 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.”
Liverpool would go on to secure a 1-0 win over Tottenham in the final to lift their sixth Champions League trophy.
