I had to nutmeg Luis, says Suarez


Barcelona forward Luis Suarez says he had no option but to nutmeg Paris St-Germain defender David Luiz twice as he scored two brilliant goals in Paris.

Suarez easily cut inside former Chelsea defender Luiz on his way to putting Barca 2-0 up before repeating the trick to embarrass him en route to scoring a stunning third.

The former Liverpool striker said: “A striker is always looking for goals and the two moves came off for me.

“I had to nutmeg Luiz twice because there was nothing else I could do.”

Suarez scored 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season before completing his £75m move to Spain.

And he took his tally to 17 goals for Barca this season – including 11 in his last 11 – with his double in Paris to put Barca on the brink of the semi-finals of the Champions League.
