Suarez: I did not want to leave the house after Liverpool defeat

Luis Suarez has opened up on the pain that he and his Barcelona teammates felt in the aftermath of their dramatic collapse in the second leg of the Champions League semi final tie against Liverpool.

The once-adored Reds striker turned public enemy number one, due to his antagonising antics throughout the two legs which included a running battle with Andy Robertson who did not take a backward step throughout.

Speaking publicly on the unforgettable Anfield night for the first time, the Uruguayan gave a fascinating insight into the aftermath.

The Mirror (via Fox Sports Argentina) reported Suarez as saying:

“It was days, weeks, that we who loved to take the kids to school, football, activities, we suffered ... I did not want to leave from home after losing.

“It was very complicated. I really had a bad time, like most of my team-mates.

 

“We had already learned the previous year that we could have such a 3-0 result in our favour, but football has that.

 

Suarez said that the outstanding frenzied atmosphere that the Anfield crowd was able to generate that night played a major part in the events that followed.

The star striker also admitted that a sense of fear rapidly spread amongst the visitors, and the Catalan giants simply couldn’t cope with what they were up against.

“We knew how Anfield was going to be and how tight the stadium was, I told the teammates and everything.

"It is not necessary to take away merits from Liverpool, which pushed the fans.

“In five minutes they had two situations, at 15 minutes they already won and that enters you, it generates a nervousness.

“Then you see that a teammate loses the ball, another loses two more balls, and that leads you to an awkward situation until in the second half it goes out as it came out.

“The Champions League has that, if you go out 30 seconds relaxed, they pass you by. 

“At the group, institutional level and as a human being this kind of defeat is suffered."

It is a night that still gives any Liverpool fan goosebumps as well as putting a beaming smile on their face.

And it makes it all the better to read the kind of impact it had on our opposition. 

Football is a game played above the shoulders, just as much as what talent you may possess on the pitch.

If you enter a game with a wrong attitude, you are going to pay the ultimate price.

If we are to meet Barcelona again in the near future, having any kind of psychological advantage can be priceless.

Any player that gives it the billy big bollocks, ‘the atmosphere is nothing special’ shite that occasionally rears its head is a fucking liar. The toothy one is just the latest in a line of many and I’m guessing not too many level this type of comment at the Etihad. Guardiola would kill for it.

I'm still not over that night myself, it was fucking glorious. The best football match I've ever been to, what a fucking night. That we got to shove it down to ex players faces just makes it a little bit better. 

 

For me it was better than winning the final, but only because we won the final. If that makes any sense.

I just hope that we never again play Barcelona whilst him and Messi are still there. That lack of redemption will be an itch that they can never scratch.

I always think of Dave's comment in the 3-0 Man City match report, a game where Vincent Kompany was so rattled at one point that he tried to put his foot through the ball so he wouldn't have responsibility for it and ended up hitting an air-shot:

Instead it was the dismissive, sneering words coming from Manchester that backfired on them. Playing at Napoli or in Argentina means nothing. I’m not saying they aren’t hostile atmospheres, far from it. They’re probably more hostile than Anfield actually. What people don’t seem to understand though is that it isn’t about hostility. 
 
We haven’t pulled off all these remarkable European wins against all odds because we shout and scream abuse at the opposition. That’s part of it, but players get that all the time and that alone wouldn’t bother great teams in the way that Anfield has time and time again. If it was just about snarling and being abusive to the opposition then Everton would win the league every year. 

 

It’s funny hearing fans of other clubs dismiss it as “waving a few flags and singing YNWA”. They just don’t get it, but then how could they? No other club in England (or for that matter Europe) has this, so how can they know? Their ignorance is understandable, as is their scorn, which is borne out of jealousy. Of course they're sick of hearing about it. Wouldn't you be if it was United or (don't laugh) Chelsea?

He and Alonso are the best players we've let go in 20 years.  Both of them in the team and we'd walk the league.  I love Xabi and I think Suarez is a complete cock, but both fantastic players.

To be fair to him, I didn't want to leave the house either. I had the game on loop.

I couldn't leave the house. I'd had to stay in to constantly top up the sudocrem on my cock.
