Luis Suarez Explains Why He Keeps Furiously Screaming At Gerard Deulofeu

The big old loon

Unlike other footballers who are less, shall we say, insane, Luis Suarez has the advantage of players being terrified he might bite them if they ever cross him.

This is surely why his Barcelona teammate Gerard Deulofeu lets him have a go even with the rest of the world watching.

On more than one occasion, Suarez has been seen by the Spanish media laying into the Spaniard, and he's finally revealed why in an interview with Sport this week.

"He is a player with experience," he explained. "He has played in big leagues and what he has to do is listen to advice, not just from forwards, but from the manager.

He is doing that and he's learning. He's not the only player I've given a ticking-off to. We all do it. People tell me off, too!"

"I am most critical of myself," he explained. "There have been games when I've helped the team and been happy, despite not scoring."

"In other games, I have ended them badly because I did everything possible to score and was not able to. It's not about runs, there are moments when you do everything and the ball doesn't want to go in. Sometimes you hit it wrong and it goes on. They're situations strikers are used to and must live with."

"I know I am obliged to score because it's my job but also that the team's doing well and hasn't needed my goals."

Suarez himself has suffered something of a goal drought of late, failing to hit the net for over a month. He'll surely get his teeth into something soon (and hopefully it won't be Deulofeu.)
