Luis Suarez: Video of Barcelona star's final five games of 15/16 that won him the Golden Boot

Luis Suarez collected the European Golden Shoe for 2016

Luis Suarez is without question a Barcelona legend.

The Uruguayan striker's signing back in the summer of 2014 was viewed with a degree of scepticism at the time, but Suarez has proven any doubters wrong.

He's scored goals for fun in the famous red and blue jersey, while contributing with a hefty number of assists as well.

Suarez also had the prestigious honour of winning La Liga's Pichichi award while Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were battling it out at the very peak of their powers.

The former Liverpool man scooped the award in 2015/16, scoring 40 goals in just 35 league appearances.

But many may have forgotten just how epic Suarez's finish to that La Liga season was. After match day 33, the Uruguayan *only* had 26 goals to his name and was five behind Ronaldo.

Five match days later, the enigmatic striker had 40 to his name after delivering one of the greatest bursts of goal scoring the beautiful game has ever seen.

You can watch Suarez's five-game goal fest below.

Amazingly, the Uruguayan scored four goals in consecutive games, contributing to 11 goals (8G, 3A) in those two appearances.

After that, Suarez had a bit of an off game - by his standards that season - against Betis, before notching a brace and an assist versus Espanyol.

The 33-year-old then finished off the season in style with his fifth hat-trick of 2015/16, taking his tally to 17 goal contributions (14G, 3A) in the final five games of the campaign, ridiculous numbers.

Both Messi and Ronaldo have scored more goals in a single La Liga season, but neither of the pair have secured the Pichichi in more emphatic style than Suarez.

How can anyone deny that 'El Pistolero' is one of the greatest strikers to have graced the sport?

His La Liga record is almost unfathomable. In 191 games, Suarez has scored 147 goals and delivered 74 assists.

The only reason his figures are not lauded more by football fans is mainly down to the superhuman efforts of Messi and Ronaldo.

Were Suarez in any other era, he'd have probably won a Ballon d'Or or two.
