Luis Suarez has admitted Barcelona's historic defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League last season hurt for 'weeks', with the 32-year-old enduring a torrid time in the aftermath of the match against his former club.
Leading 3-0 from the first leg of their semi final tie, progression to the final looked all-but assured until a stunning 4-0 humbling at Anfield left the eventual winners with one of the most dramatic comeback victories in the competition's history.
Speaking to Fox Sports in Argentina, Suarez confessed the defeat was bitterly disappointing to him and his Blaugrana teammates, with the simple matter of leaving his house even becoming a difficult task as the subsequent scars took their time to heal.
"It was days, weeks, that we who loved to take the kids to school, football, activities, we suffered ...I did not want to leave from home after losing," he said, as relayed by the Mirror.
"It was very complicated. I really had a bad time, like most of my team-mates.
"We knew how Anfield was going to be and how tight the stadium was, I told the teammates and everything," he added.
"Then you see that a teammate loses the ball, another loses two more balls, and that leads you to an awkward situation until in the second half it goes out as it came out.
