Barcelona striker Luis Suarez says that he was shy when he first arrived at the club, as he prepared with his team to face Paris St. Germain in their Champions League quarter-final second leg match.
After a slow start following his post-World Cup ban for biting, Suarez has now scored crucial goals for Barca including a double in their 3-1 first leg victory over PSG in Paris.
The Uruguayan admitted that he had been nervous at the prospect of playing alongside Messi and Neymar when he joined the club from Liverpool for the start of the season.
"For me it is brilliant because when you arrive to a new team, to a new city you feel a bit shy (as you) don't know what they do here, who Leo is or who Ney is. but when I got here they told me 'Just do the same that you did at Liverpool'. Off the pitch I am so happy with them, there is a lot of joking, they are happy and I am happy with that," he said.
Suarez has scored 19 goals in all competitions but most importantly he has been able to find the back of the net in key games. He got the winner in the El Clasico with Real Madrid last month and also struck twice in the first leg against Manchester City in the previous round of the Champions League.
