Luis Suarez happy in lionel Messi’s shadow

Luis Suarez is unconcerned at being overshadowed by Lionel Messi’s scoring feats at Barcelona but remains angry about being labelled a “racist” and a “cheat” in England. The former Liverpool striker has made more an impact with his assists since returning from a biting ban at the end of October while Messi has become the top scorer in La Liga and Champions League history.

“I have always been a goal scorer but I also like to help set up goals. I came here to score goals and not provide passes. I am having a great time here. Obviously I want to score more goals but while the team is doing well then there is no problem. It is fantastic to play alongside Messi, the best player in the world. On his own and with his skill he has ended all the doubts over the team and him.” Suarez, however, is unhappy at the way he was treated in England and the eight-match ban he received at Liverpool for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra. “For now I have to accept I was accused of being a racist without any proof over what happened with Evra,” said Suarez.
