Suarez Speaks On Barcelona’s Super Cup Loss
Barcelona striker, Luiz Suarez has reacted after his club’s shocking loss to Atletico Madrid when the two teams clashed in Thursday’s Spanish Super Cup tie.
Atletico Madrid defeated Barca in the game which was played at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.
In his reaction to the game’s outcome, Suarez noted that Barca committed ‘mistakes’ and were ‘distracted’ at certain moments during the clash with Atletico.
“It’s not to do with us, it’s the club’s situation, but the manager isn’t to blame. Mistakes and distractions at certain moments cost us.”
“Whether we win, lose or draw, we always have to be self-critical. Especially when we lose. We have to work hard to make sure we don’t make the same mistakes,” Suarez was quoted by Sport as saying after the match.
It will be recalled that Atletico Madrid emerged winner of the encounter with goals from Koke, Alvaro Morata and Angel Correa despite goals from Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann for Barca.
With the win, Atletico has now booked a place in the Super Copa finals against city rivals, Real Madrid.
Next up for Barcelona and Suarez is a La Liga fixture against Granada on Sunday.
