Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez has revealed that his teammates Lionel Messi and Neymar attempt to wind him up during training sessions. 

Suarez, who has enjoyed a remarkable campaign for the Catalans, explains how Messi and Neymar tell him to take no more than two touches.

In fact, the enigmatic Uruguayan international has admitted that he usually leaves the training ground when the aforementioned duo 'start with the tricks'.

"They try to wind me up by telling me just to take two touches, no more," he told beIN Sports, as per

"And if at all possible, just one touch and make sure it’s in the area.

"It doesn't bother me because I already know that. I know my limits. That's why it doesn't offend me, it makes me laugh.

"When Messi and Neymar start with the tricks on the training ground I usually leave so as not to get in the way."

Incredible stats

Messi and Neymar may well have the skills, but the brilliance of Suarez shouldn't be underestimated. The former Liverpool man has gone from strength-to-strength at the Camp Nou and is now recognised as one of the leading players in world football.

His statistics this season most definitely back-up that notion; with 40 goals in Spain's elite division, Suarez struck five more than Cristiano Ronaldo and a mammoth 14 more than teammate Messi. 

Of course, with Ronaldo and Messi around, it won't be easy for Suarez to establish himself as the world's best player, but there's a case for him to claim next year's Ballon d'Or. 

Will Suarez ever win the Ballon d'Or? Have your say below!
