‘Suarez behaved like a rat!’ – Barcelona star slammed by Aldridge for antics against Liverpool
Luis Suarez “behaved like a rat” during a Champions League reunion with Liverpool, says John Aldridge, with the Barcelona striker’s antics at Camp Nou considered to be “not acceptable”.
The former Anfield favourite opened his European goal account for 2018-19 during a meeting with familiar faces in Catalunya.
The Uruguayan had admitted prior to the first leg of a semi-final showdown that he intended to celebrate if finding the target .
He stuck to his word when breaking the deadlock in a 3-0 win for Barcelona, with there no room for sentiment in the world of a forward very much focused on the present.
Aldridge has no issue with a frontman revelling in the emotion of hitting the net but feels a man with strong ties to Liverpool should have shown more respect in other areas of his game .
The ex-Reds star told the Irish Independent : “Suarez behaved like a rat in the Champions League semi-final against Liverpool and it was out of order.
“I don’t have any problem with him celebrating his goal against Liverpool. Just because he used to wear a red shirt, it doesn’t mean he has to pretend he is not excited to score a great goal in a massive Champions League game.
