Barcelona forward Luis Suarez says Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is the toughest defender he has ever faced in his life.
The former Liverpool talisman who netted a hat-trick at the weekend to help Barcelona to a 3-1 win over Eibar is a huge fan of Ramos’ nonsense style of defending.
“He’s the toughest defender that I’ve come up against,” Suarez told Mundo Deportivo.
“He’s very strong, competitive and has plenty of experience.
“That’s one of the reasons why there is added importance on the goal I scored against Real Madrid at Camp Nou.”
Suarez also revealed that he is happy that the team is winning without their most important player, Lionel Messi who is recovering from injury.
He said: “I’m very happy with the goals on Sunday as they helped the team whilst Leo is still out. He’s our most important player and it’s important to win without him in the side currently.
“Leo is doing fine; he’s focusing on his recovery plan and is pleased with how things are going. He’s also pleased that the team can still win without him playing.”
Suarez has scored 10 goals in 14 appearances in all competitions this season.
