Luis Suárez: 'We are not jealous of Messi, we know he's the best'

Perhaps the biggest reason why the 'MSN' trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr. works so well together is because there's no competition between them to see who's the best player, mainly because everyone knows that the Argentine is the greatest of all.

That lack of jealousy is something that has truly made them a unit that works together for the success of the team. They've already scored 127 goals since last season, and they're certainly set for a lot more now that all three are healthy. The newest member of MSN, Luis Suárez, talked to Uruguayan media about his success with Barcelona and the trio, and why they work so well together, on and off the pitch.

"We are all rowing in the same direction -- to give Barcelona titles. The relationship on and off the pitch is very good.

"We all know that Leo [Messi] is the best. None of us attempts to overtake him or equal what he does.

"There is no jealousy. We are part of a team, and we don't compete with anyone.

"If you had several players wanting to compete to be No. 1, it would be complicated. I'm just here to help. I don't feel jealousy.

"Today, I don't feel the same pressure I felt in other places. There are other players that stand out more. Not everything depends on me, and that gives me more peace.

"At Liverpool, without anyone asking me, I demanded myself to do things so the team would do well. But when there was a bad game, I was criticised.

"With quality players around you, it's easier -- you learn a lot just by watching the things they do."
