More Proof That Luis Suarez Is Absolutely Mental

Luis Suarez wanted to murder Gerard Pique after the defender took his opportunity to score the goal of the week.

Part of what makes Luis Suarez so brilliant is that he’s absolutely insane. Occasionally this particular character trait can manifest itself poorly, but it’s also the same quirk that propelled him from Montevideo’s Nacional to the Camp Nou.

Suarez made his 2017-18 La Liga bow on Saturday and that insanity was on full display in the match’s final three minutes. With Barcelona leading 3-0, Suarez became hilariously incandescent with Gerard Pique after the defender scored Barca’s fourth in the 87th minute.

Suarez appeared to berate and strike Pique for stealing his Goal of the Week contender. It’s funny because it’s obviously a quirky way to react to a teammate’s goal, but also because the 30-year-old was probably going to execute the acrobatic effort flawlessly.

After scoring 29 league goals in 35 matches last year, Suarez was about to get off the mark this year in fine style, if not for Pique.

But three minutes later, Suarez put his energies to better use by actually scoring from an Ousmane Dembele feed.
