Champions League: John Aldridge blasts one Barcelona star ahead of Anfield battle
Former Liverpool striker, John Aldridge has launched a furious attack on Barcelona forward, Luis Suarez ahead of tonight’s Champions League semi final second leg clash at Anfield.
Aldridge claimed that Suarez’s antics in the Champions League semi-final first leg were “unacceptable.”
Suarez, a former Liverpool striker, opened the scoring in Barca’s 3-0 win, and wasted little time in infuriating Reds supporters by celebrating wildly.
And Aldridge was not too pleased with the way the Uruguayan conducted himself.
“Suarez behaved like a rat in the Champions League semi-final against Liverpool and it was out of order,” Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“I don’t have any problem with him celebrating his goal against Liverpool. Just because he used to wear a red shirt, it doesn’t mean he has to pretend he is not excited to score a great goal in a massive Champions League game.
“What was not acceptable was his antics on and off the ball, as he got into the faces of Liverpool players, fell over any time anyone went near him and tried to get his opponents booked at every opportunity.
“He was sneaky, he was nasty and he was everything people used to tell us Suarez was when everyone at Liverpool was trying to defend him,” he added.
