Suarez excited to face Reds

05 August 2016, 17:55

Cape Town - Luis Suarez admits that he would struggle to play against Liverpool in a competitive match but can't wait to face his former club in a pre-season friendly.

Barcelona and Liverpool lock horns at Wembley on Saturday in what will be both clubs' penultimate game of pre-season.

It is the first time Suarez will come up against his old teammates and is it's an occasion he is relishing.

Suarez, who scored 82 goals in 133 appearances for the Anfield club, spoke to the Liverpool official website ahead of the clash.

He said: "It’s a really nice moment for the supporters. I have some friends there and I think it’s a really good moment to come back to play against Liverpool."

A sell-out crowd is expected at the national stadium, with Suarez describing that kind of experience, in front of the "best" supporters in the world as a "dream."

"I think for players when you play in front of 90,000 people, it’s a dream. Liverpool’s support is one of the best in the world and I think they are excited for the game to see great players on the pitch."

He added: "Everybody knows Liverpool is so important in my life, in my career, and my family as well. My second child was born there and I had a really good moment there. I think it’s a nice moment for me.

"Wembley Stadium is special and I played three or four games there: the semi-final I scored against Everton; and then we won the Carling Cup on penalties; we lost the [FA Cup] final against Chelsea.

"It’s important for this game that it’s a friendly game because if it was in the Champions League or a really good tournament, it’d be difficult to play against Liverpool. But a friendly game is to enjoy."

Liverpool's final pre-season game is against Mainz 05 on Sunday, 7 August at the Opel Arena in Mainz.
