Luis Suarez has posted a lengthy message on Instagram after Barcelona lost their La Liga title to Real Madrid on Thursday.

The Uruguay international says he knows it’s a tough time at the Camp Nou but has urged the team to come together to beat Alaves and then fight for the Champions League.

“Today it is time to face a difficult time like many times we live. It is also time to face the reality that when you do not live up to what we want it is best to be self-critical and strengthen for the future.

“First end the last league game that for pride and prestige to defend this shirt that deserves so much respect. Then rest, disconnect and get back ready for the Champions League, fight together until the end, and give joy to our fans who deserve it so much !!!! Força Barça.”

There’s plenty of criticism about Barcelona flying around right now with manager Quique Setien’s position also in the spotlight. The latest reports suggest he is set to stay for now after Friday’s meeting with Josep Maria Bartomeu.
