Uruguayan goal machine Luis Suarez has spoken of his pleasure at playing with Lionel Messi.
Speaking to La Marca after Messi grabbed himself yet another hat-trick during Barcelona's crushing 5-0 defeat of local rivals Espanyol, the ex-Liverpool striker said: "
The Catalan giants have already opened up a four point gap over champions and bitter rivals Real Madrid in the race for the La Liga title, courtesy of Madrid surprisingly dropping points at home to Levante on Saturday lunchtime, prior to Barcelona's evening kick off.
Suarez himself has a a sensational record since joining the five time European champions, and he realises that the league season is only just beginning but is also aware that each and every point could prove vital in deciding where the La Liga trophy will rest come May.
The Uruguayan went on to state: "
"After a few days in a poor physical condition, I picked up the pace with the team, the coach asked me how I was during the game but with a knee injury, it is better to try and build rhythm."
A fit and healthy Suarez paired with the evergreen Messi bodes well for Barcelona and will strike fear into their opponents both domestically and across Europe.
