Luis Suarez slammed on Twitter for woeful Champions League performance

Published Add your comment

When you switch clubs for big money, you've got to live up to the legacy of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and all the other expensive stars who have more than lived up to their price tags.

Unfortunately for Luis Suarez, he's struggling after four months out (a self-inflicted absence of course) to get up to speed at Barcelona.

Last night against Ajax he was well off the pace, missing one clear opportunity when set through one-on-one. The Liverpool Suarez would not have thought twice and tucked it away.

After months out and without a preseason to get fit, Suarez is not on the same page as Lionel Messi and Neymar. At the moment it looks an awkward fit, although it's very early days and all three have the quality to make it work.

OptaJohan, the Dutch equivalent of OptaJoe, tweeted out a particularly damning statistic of the Uruguayan mid-way through Barca's 2-0 victory over Ajax in Amsterdam last night.

Suarez was actually playing in the Champions League against his former club, for the first time since his time with the Dutch giants in 2011.

Barcelona won 2-0 in Holland's capital city, with two goals from Leo Messi. The Argentinean scored his 70th and 71st goals in the Champions League, drawing him level with Raul for the competition's record. Cristiano Ronaldo is on 70 goals.
