Last season's Premier League top scorer Luis Suarez has said that playing at Barcelona is difficult as compared to Liverpool.
The former Liverpool star striker said that in the Premier League he had enough space to beat the opponent but it is difficult to find space in La Liga as they all are aware of Barcelona quality.
In La Liga, the defenders mark closely and give a very close gap which sometimes become difficult to deal with, said the Uruguay.
Suarez told: “The defenders are strong, quicker, more corpulent… I was used to them. Here they are more skillful, they complement each other and play tighter together. They know how much danger Barça can cause and so it can be quite difficult sometimes.”
Suarez who is currently the second highest assist provider for the Catalans is yet to find goal scoring streak at Camp Nou. He has only one goal to his name in the League.
In the interview the former Ajax striker added that he thought it would be easy to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar but it is much more difficult than Premier League because of the toughness of league.
The 27-year-old was signed from Liverpool after his impressive goal scoring record in the Premier League, but the Uruguayan has failed to impress in terms of goal. However, he has assisted five times in La Liga so far this season.
He added: “I’m not scoring much at the moment, but I’m sure that with help from my colleagues, the goals will come.”
Despite of his poor goal scoring form at Camp Nou he is still making a good name. He is very happy to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar.
