Football News

Liverpool hero Luis Suarez recently returned to Melwood to visit his former teammates, and caught up with Philippe Coutinho the best way a man knows how.

The Uruguayan posted a picture of the pair playing FIFA 16 to his Instagram page, which boasts 11.4 million followers.

However, Liverpool fans will be disappointed to see that Suarez’s allegiances clearly lie with Barcelona.

The 29-year-old selected his current team while Coutinho opted for the Reds.

While the winner of the contest is unknown, Suarez hinted at victory by adding the caption: “As always, teaching my friend @Phil_Coutinho some things. Thanks for everything, my friends!!!”

Suarez made a surprise visit to Liverpool’s training ground and admitted he has some great memories of his time spent at the club.

He told Liverpool’s website: “It was fantastic to see the lads. 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 the (Liverpool) games and look out for the results. I am very interested in how Liverpool are doing because they are so important in my life.”

Anfield hero despite 2013-14 disappointment

Suarez almost fired the Reds to the Premier League title in 2014 but the club fell two points short.

Still, he is an Anfield hero - despite staying for just three and a half seasons - after scoring 82 times in 133 games.

After winning PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year honours, the striker signed for Barcelona for £75 million in the summer of 2014.

He has since gone on to reach the heights most players only dream of reaching.

Treble chase

Suarez won the La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey treble in his first season at the Catalan club and could repeat the feat again this year.

He scored his 42nd goal of the season in the 4-0 win over Eibar on Sunday which kept Luis Enrique’s team eight points ahead of Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals following their 2-0 win over Arsenal in the first leg of their last 16 tie.

Should Barcelona reach the Champions League final, they will play two finals in the space of six days. They have already booked their place in the Copa del Rey final, where they will face Sevilla on May 22.

So Suarez might miss Liverpool, but he certainly won’t regret leaving.

He gets to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar on a weekly basis, and is guaranteed to feature in title races and Champions League finals.

That’s the sort of thing Coutinho only gets to do on FIFA 16 at the minute.
