The draw between Liverpool and the Champions League will pit two former duels against their former club.
Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool only to join Barcelona last January.
He left the club in bad conditions while he forced himself to the giants of Calatan.
It is very likely that he will get a bad reception on his return but a man who will certainly not do it is Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan striker was a brilliant servant of Liverpool during his stay at the club.
He scored 82 goals in 132 games and emerged as one of the club’s best players in the Premier League era.
His last season in England, where he scored 31 goals and won the PFA Player of the Year award, was enough, as Liverpool nearly won their first Premier League title.
Suarez then left for Barcelona the following summer and impressed since his arrival.
The 32-year-old has now spoken to the media about the upcoming Champions League semi-final match against Barcelona.
Despite proclaiming his respect for the club, Suarez insisted he would party if he scored.
“In the preparation phase of the game, it’s nice to say how grateful I am to Liverpool for all that they have offered me, but you know me, once in the field, there will be more friendships, no companions, no attention, all the good times, “he told the Daily Mail.
“I will defend the colors of Barcelona with all the pride of the world.”
Most players refuse to celebrate their old clubs out of respect.
But Suarez has no problem celebrating against Liverpool and ending some fans who loved him before.
Suarez also said he was grateful to have the opportunity to play for Liverpool.
“I was lucky to keep good memories of all the clubs I played for,” he said.
Playing for my home club, Uruguay, brought me to Europe, and I played a lot as a player at Ajax, which helped me to take a new step in the elite, that of Liverpool.
And in Liverpool, I was able to consolidate my status as a player on the world stage, Liverpool made me understand that I could continue to improve as a player, continue to grow, and I’m thankful for all that and for what I shared with my kids there too.
