Luis Suarez described his backheel in Barcelona‘s 5-2 rout of Mallorca on Saturday evening as “the best goal of my career” – and we’re not going to disagree.
Barcelona ran out comfortable winners at the Camp Nou as Lionel Messi bagged a hat-trick and Antoine Griezmann also struck.
But Suarez’s effort just before half-time to make it 4-1 caught the eye most, and the Uruguay international was clearly delighted with his own work.
“It’s the best goal of my career,” Suarez said afterwards.
“I knew that it was a tight angle and the last option I had was to hit it with my heel. I was looking to bounce it because I had very little chance against the goalkeeper.
“[Head coach Ernesto] Valverde tells me that sometimes I miss the easiest ones and score the most difficult ones.”
🤤 Oh my word, Luis Suarez!
🔥 Barca are RAMPANT!
