Uruguayan striker Luis Suárez says he is not worried by the lack of goals for Barcelona. Although Suárez scored in Barça’s win in the Champions League against Apoel, he has yet to score in the Spanish League for the Catalan giants.
Luis Suárez came under fire after last weekend’s match against Valencia. Although it was a match that could have swung either way, the 27 year-old striker blew two golden opportunities to put the Catalans in the driving seat. In the end it was up to Sergio Busquets to volley in the only goal of the match deep into stoppage time.
Suárez was speaking to Catalunya Radio and insists his colossal €81Million price tag is not getting to him.
“I know I came to Barcelona to score goals but I’m not worried,” said the Uruguayan.
“I feel important to the team beyond the goals. I hope to score goals but Barca have two phenomena (Messi and Neymar), so there’s no drama.”
“What is happening to me is that instead of acting on instinct, as I usually do, I hesitated (against Valencia) and so I missed some good chances.”
“I will try to regain that instinct.”
Luis Suárez also feels he’s a changed man after his four month FIFA ban for biting defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup.
“My character means I will still go fight for every ball and I will not change for anyone,” he explained.
“But I will not argue less with opponents; not fight with them as much.”
“Now I try to make friends with them. I try to avoid arguments.”
“After what happened to me, I now know that I could end up hurting myself.”
