Luis Suarez has given a lengthy interview to Sport where he’s talked about a range of topics including team-mate Ousmane Dembele.

The Frenchman has been on fire this season with 13 goals already, and Suarez has explained what it’s like playing with the 21-year-old.

“It isn’t that he hits the ball so far forward but at times we’re on the counter and I can’t get there in time!

“I’m not able to get there and Leo is even further behind of him. We said: “He goes really fast, we’ll never catch him!”

“When he starts to run, we need to start further ahead of him to be there at the right now. If not, it’s impossible to keep up.”

Dembele is currently out with a sprained ankle sustained against Leganes and will miss Saturday’s clash against Valencia.

Hopefully he’ll return to training next week and we can see him back in action soon.
