Luis Suarez's back-heel goal during Barcelona 5-2 Mallorca still needs explaining

Luis Suarez's back-heel goal vs Mallorca was pure genius

Luis Suarez is one of the pantomime villains of modern football.

From biting opposing defenders to diving all over the gaffe, the Uruguayan is never far from the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

But in terms of pure footballing ability, there are few strikers to have played the game that can top Suarez.

After scoring a plethora of goals at both Ajax and Liverpool, the 33-year-old opted to join Barcelona in 2014 where he has found the back of the net with frightening regularity.

In his 270 games for the club in all competitions, Suarez has scored 191 times and provided 108 assists.

Throughout his time in Catalonia, Suarez has been the scorer of some great goals and prior to this season, picking his number one strike for Barcelona was mighty difficult.

But the Uruguayan's goal against Mallorca at the end of 2019 has made sure that picking a winner is pretty darn easy.

Can't remember it? Don't worry, we've got you covered. During Barca's impressive 5-2 win over Mallorca in December, Suarez took scoring with a back-heel to a new level.

After excellent build-up play, the ball fell to the South American striker and he somehow managed to loft the ball over the 'keeper with the back of his heel and into the net.

How on earth does he generate so much power?!

It really is a one in a million goal, a moment of innovation that few players in the world could pull off in a competitive setting.

The goal is also not the first time Suarez has dazzled a crowd with a back heel. Back in 2015, the Barca legend emulated the great Ronaldinho to leave Mehdi Benatia for dead on the halfway line.

You can almost see the Moroccan's spirt leave his body as Suarez nonchalantly back-heels the ball over his head and charges down the pitch.

He's not everyones cup of tea, but you're not a football fan if you don't appreciate the brilliance of the Uruguayan.
