With 41 goals in all competitions this season, Luis Suárez is in a great form.
The Uruguayan striker is FC Barceona’s top scorer — not too shabby when one considers he’s playing alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr to form the most feared trident since the days of Poseidon.
It was for this reason that Suárez on Monday was named the top Ibero-American player in La Liga by Spain’s EFE news agency.
Suárez gave his teammated most of the credt. “I am happy to help the team because that’s what is most important. We don’t compete against each other internally. Instead we enjoy the good individual moments. An award such as this is always welcome, but we are focused on group success,” he said
Suarez explained why the team’s chemistry is so good, one of the big reasons they are currently riding a 34-game unbeaten streak. “We do not look at statistics or numbers, we live day to day, we have a great relationship on and off the field, and it’s all based on instinct,” he said. “We know that if the trident is good to go, everyone else will be too. I have a great relationship with all our teammates, not just Messi and Neymar Jr.”
Suárez revealed what most surprised him upon coming to FC Barcelona: “The humility of our players is spectacular, they have won everything and every day they treat you like one of the guys and that’s admirable.”
Suárez also spoke about up Leo Messi, who scored yet another amazing free kick against Sevilla on Sunday night.
“His left leg is unique worldwide and it is admirable,” Suárez said.
