Luis Suarez is approaching a return due to a knee injury. And he has expressed a desire to return to the field. In January, Suarez injured his right knee in the semi-finals of Supercopa de Espana against Atletico de Madrid and has been recovering ever since. “At the moment I’m fine, getting used to training with team-mates again,” he told Barcelona’s official media channels. “It’s always difficult to return after an injury because you play with great fear. It has been difficult for several months during quarantine, to look after the children during training at home. But some people have been worse. Now that everything is starting to normalize, we can now walk with the children and enjoy more freedom.”
Suarez also admitted that the end of this season would be like no other. “We must adapt to the hot weather conditions in which we will play,” He said. “It will be strange to play without fans. But we focused on winning the rest of our games to raise the trophy at the end of the season”. Suarez also spoke about the possibility of overtaking Laszlo Kubala in Barca’s all-time top goal scorers, as he is only three goals away. “It would be a great feat to overtake a historical player like Kubala. Nut my main focus is helping the team,” said the Uruguay international. Remembering the Champions League final in 2015, Suarez admitted that it was one of his career highlights so far.
“The victory in the Champions League and the opportunity to score and get the help of Lionel Messi to win the treble is something that I will never forget,” he revealed.
