Eight things we loved this weekend: Klopp, Suarez, Shearer…
Jurgen Klopp once again had us laughing over the weekend, while we very much enjoyed the most ridiculous bit of refereeing we think we’ve ever seen.
It was another wonderful weekend of football, with Luis Suarez’s brilliant equaliser in Barcelona’s come-from-behind win at Real Sociedad certainly catching the eye, but goals are only a tiny part of the fun.
Including that Suarez pearler, here’s a selection of things that caught our eye over the weekend…
He’s fun, isn’t he, Jurgen?
Klopp just gave the best 30 seconds of post match interview I’ve ever seen. Complete with f-bomb on live tv.

Not content with moving above Samuel Eto’o in Barcelona’s list of all-time top goalscorers, Suarez is now stealing the former Cameroon international’s finishes.
What a world class finesse from Luis Suarez. Brilliant. pic.twitter.com/xRU1AvLace

When refs go rogue
We’re quite into just how much of a power trip referee Tony Chapron had at the weekend. Absolutely wonderful.
Have you ever seen a referee kick a player AND then send him off?! 🔴
You have now!!! 😲😲😲 pic.twitter.com/Sc1oRisqgI

Goalkeepers hitting the SkyCam is always fun. Step forward Atheltic Bilbao’s Iago Herrerin.
