Luis Suárez was asked to comment on Filipe Luis’ decision to post a picture of a wound sustained in a challenge between the two following Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Atlético Madrid on Wednesday night. Suárez reacted angrily and didn’t hold back in his assessment of Luis’ actions.

Football is a man's game, says Suárez

“This is football,” he said. “It’s a man’s game and what happens on the pitch stays on the pitch. You can’t go around making a circus every time something happens. This is football. I repeat, it’s for men.”

“[Messi’s injury] hurts. We can only send him our best wishes. It’s a tricky injury and now we have to step up,” he added.
