FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who has been struggling in front goals in recent games has admitted that he loses his temper when he fails to supply his teammates Lionel Messi.
Ernesto Valverde has adopted an unexpected strategy with the former Liverpool forward in that he hasn’t been reluctant to substitute him in matches.
Suarez clarified in an interview with Sport that he can ‘get angry’ when he ‘comes up short‘ due to the pressure of ‘looking for Messi’. Given his fairly poor goal return for the 2017/18 season, Suarez is concentrating on utilizing the international break to come back to full fitness in the wake of having surged a return from a past knee injury.

“I don’t think there’s been any anxiety. Anxious would be to have the ball and try to beat five players. In that sense, I’m calm. My plan is to rest and recover properly,” Suarez admitted.
“After the injury I had, I rushed things with my knee and long-term that can harm you. I had a lot of pressure physically, just making it for the national team and until now there wasn’t a break.”
Speaking on his new boss Valverde he said: “Valverde is more relaxed when he speaks to you, he knows how to treat players. The coach knows where I perform best and where I feel comfortable.
“In training sessions, you can tell that the staff has played before, the coach has surprised me in a good way.”
