While most fans have paid face value to watch today’s friendly at Wembley, one supporter has splashed some serious hard-earned cash to be one of the 90,000 in attendance.
According to Catalan newspaper Sport, the fan paid out an incredible 589 euros for a ticket.
Never mind the best seats in the house, he should be sitting in Jurgen Klopp or Luis Enrique’s chair after spending that kind of cash to watch a friendly.
We just hope for his sake it’s a good game.
Suarez excited to face Liverpool
Suarez, the afternoon’s star attraction, told the Liverpool website this week: “It’s a really nice moment for the supporters. I have some friends there and I think it’s a really good moment to come back to play against Liverpool.”
... and Philippe Coutinho in particular
The striker also explained why he’s looking forward to facing Philippe Coutinho.
“I played against him when Uruguay played Brazil but I think Philippe with Liverpool is different,” Suarez said.
“He is the boss of the team on the pitch because he controls everything. I know he is excited to play against me and Barcelona, too.”
He added: “I remember the people, the supporters, the managers I had. Kenny Dalglish, Brendan Rodgers, they helped my career a lot.
“I miss friends like Stevie [Gerrard], Philippe, Martin Skrtel, [Jordan] Henderson. And I have friends in the people that work in the kitchen as well, [such as] Carole. They know they helped me a lot there and I miss them.”
