Football News

Every top footballer seems to be doing it at the moment: finding the back of the net with a shot from behind the goal.

Lionel Messi did it last month - in front of Italian musician Eros Ramazzotti - and this was later emulated by Real Madrid’s Marcelo and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Luis Suarez has become the latest high-profile player to score from behind the goal - during a head-to-head battle with his Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique, who was unsuccessful - and you can see the Uruguayan’s moment of magic by scrolling down this page.

Suarez managed to score at the second time of asking. The amount of swerve he needed to put on the ball was ridiculous.

Pique had a total of four attempts and came close with a couple of them, but was unable to match Suarez on this occasion.

Suarez is in the best form of his career

The 29-year-old is playing with such confidence at the moment and is currently in the form of his life.

In 41 matches this season, Suarez has scored a magnificent 42 goals - more than both Neymar and Messi.

The £75 million Barcelona paid Liverpool for Suarez in the summer of 2014 now looks a relative bargain for the reigning European champions.

Suarez returned to Melwood this week

Earlier this week, Suarez made a surprise visit to see his former Liverpool teammates at the Reds’ Melwood training ground and revealed he still watches the Merseyside outfit on TV when he can.

"It was fantastic to see the lads," Suarez told Liverpool’s official website, per Goal. "The people that work here are really nice and I miss them, so I wanted to come and see some friends. I have really good friends here.

"I had a really good moment here in three and a half years and when you have a really good moment in your life, it is something you remember.

"I always try to watch [Liverpool's] games and look out for the results. I am very interested in how Liverpool are doing because they are so important in my life."

Suarez has avoided trouble (so far) at Barcelona

Suarez established his status as a world-class striker at Anfield, but his three-and-a-half years with the Reds was marred by a series of controversial incidents.

At Barcelona, however, he has so far managed to steer clear of trouble.

Suarez isn’t the main man at Barcelona and that seems to be working in his favour.
