Samuel Eto’o also expressed his opinion about Suarez and said, “Luis is always Luis, he is one of the best players in the world in his position. It is obvious that Barca has to reinforce themselves, but it is not necessary to take away the stripes of a general. Luis is a general, he is a captain, and he cannot be demoted.”

He then talked about the current playing as well as coaching squad of Barcelona and said, “Lautaro is doing very well, but people have a tendency to forget recent history. Luis has written the history of Barca and of football. We must admit it. That does not mean that new players should be excluded, but you can’t forget the greats.”
