It has been a refreshing change for Suarez, who says “not everything depends on me” at the Camp Nou, which has allowed him to enjoy his football again.

"I did it before, but in a different way. Today I do not feel as much pressure as I felt in other teams.

As for his time at Liverpool, Suarez says life was very different with the pressure of each game taking its toll on him.
"At Liverpool, even without anyone demanding it of me, I forced myself to do things to help the team to work,” he said.
“When there was a bad game I was always criticised. I took it internally and it hurt me.
"Obviously I can improve further. The most important thing is to have the desire to improve and with quality players around is always easier to do it.”
He added: “You learn a lot just by seeing what they do."
