Luis Suarez ‘singled out’ by Barcelona after Liverpool upset – striker’s future now in doubt

Posted on


Luis Suarez has been deemed ‘transferable’ by Barcelona following his performance at Anfield in the Champions League, according to reports in Spain.

The La Liga winners crashed out of the competition as Jurgen Klopp’s side pulled off a miraculous comeback earlier this month.

Suarez was singled out for his poor performance on the night, and his commitment was also called into question when he made the decision to undergo knee surgery.

The operation meant the striker would miss the Copa del Rey final but could still star for Uruguay in next month’s Copa America.

Valencia caused a huge upset to Barca on Saturday as they ran out 2-1 winners to be crowned champions.

And Suarez’s absence from the squad has only furthered the fallout.

The 32-year-old’s future is now in doubt, with Spanish publication Sport reporting: “That bad feeling between the board and sporting department towards Suarez means that the striker is now considered ‘transferable’.

“Suarez and the board are no strangers when it comes to falling out.

“His good relationship with (Lionel) Messi means he’s often viewed as untouchable but he was singled out for his performances against Liverpool in the Champions League.”

Suarez wrote: “The injury that led to surgery has nothing to do with my cartilage but because of a torn meniscus that I suffered in the match against Liverpool, which is why I felt obligated to undergo surgery and miss yesterday’s final against my will.”
