- Luis Suarez has stated clearly that he will not celebrate if he scores against Liverpool
- Liverpool will be facing Barcelona at Anfield in the second leg of their Champions League tie
- The Premier League side suffered 3-0 defeat at Nou Camp with Suarez and Messi scoring the goals
Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez has promised not to celebrate if he scores against his former club Liverpool in the Champions League semifinal clash.
Liverpool will host the reigning Spanish champions Barcelona in the return leg of their semifinal clash at Anfield on Tuesday night, May 7, having lost the first leg 3-0 at Nou Camp.
After scoring Barcelona's opening goal in the first leg against Liverpool, Luis Suarez was glad and celebrated the goal, but he has a change of mind ahead of the second leg.
Luis Suarez joined Liverpool from Ajax in 2011 and left the Premier League club for Barcelona in 2014 after scoring 82 goals in 133 appearances for the Merseyside club.
“People who know about football and who love this sport know about the importance of my goal last week. I have all the respect in the world for Liverpool fans.
''Because I scored and celebrated with my fans I say sorry but the Liverpool fans would applaud me. I am very thankful to Liverpool, to the fans and the club.
''It is clear that if I score a goal against Liverpool, I won’t celebrate it in the same way I didn’t celebrate in Holland when I scored for Ajax against Groningen,'' Suarez explained according to Guardian UK.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Luis Suarez's six-month-old son was spotted taking a bite out of his father's shoulder while being carried around the pitch after Barcelona won the La Liga title.
Many were quick to notice that the comical image drew a resemblance to the infamous moment Suarez bit Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup.
