Liverpool and Barcelona go head-to-head in the International Champions Cup at Wembley Stadium later this afternoon - a pre-season friendly which sold out one hour after going on general sale.

Fans are clearly desperate to catch a glimpse of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and, of course, Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan is expected to receive an incredible reception from the travelling Reds’ supporters who still idolise him thanks to his three-and-a-half years with the Merseyside outfit.

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.”
