After Liverpool won the 2019-20 Premier League title, Barcelona striker Suarez, who played for the Red Army, also accepted an interview on Liverpool's official website, during which he also recalled the experience of almost winning the last season of the Red Army.
Although in the interview, Suarez only happily recalled his performance in that season in the atmosphere of winning the championship, but in the end he and the Red Army at that time only got a bitter ending.
On May 5, 2014, the Red Army fans could hardly forget the moment when Liverpool was reversed and tied by Crystal Palace 3-3 at Selhurst Park. They completely lost the initiative to win the championship.
When Suarez buried his face among the fans and cried, the Red Army will not only lose the championship that year, but also the strongest forward in their team history.
Returning the timeline to the end of the 2012-13 season, Suarez finally showed his true strength in the Premier League that season, ranking second in the scorer list with 23 league goals.
But Rogers’ first season of coaching was even more exciting, but the results did not improve. In the end, the Red Army only achieved a terrible record of seventh in the league. It was at this time that Suarez, who has always been competitive, was born for the first time in order to compete for more honors. To leave.
At that time, it was Arsenal who threw an olive branch to him. The Gunners had a serious decline in offensive firepower due to the switch to Manchester United by forward Van Persie. In the final round, they barely managed to keep the top four Champions League places by 1 point, so this season is big The shining Suarez naturally became the target of the arsenal.
Moreover, it was also rumored that Suarez’s contract had a termination clause of 40 million pounds, so the gunman put forward a 40 million pounds offer to the Red Army, but the Red Army rejected the offer, and the gunman management who did not clarify the situation thought it had been reached. Understanding the requirements of the contract, he made an "insulting" price of 40 million +1 pounds, which was unbelievably rejected by the Red Army.
In fact, according to media disclosures, there is no liquidated damages in the Uruguayan’s contract, but the team needs to inform the players and discuss the feasibility of the deal with the players when the team offers up to 40 million pounds. However, Suarez obviously had the willingness to transfer the Gunners. After all, Wenger's team is not only stronger overall, but also qualified for the Champions League, which is undoubtedly closer to the championship.
But at this time, Gerrard played a key role. The Red Army commander knew that at the level of a Uruguayan, the Red Army at that time could not provide him with the best platform. This soldier was ultimately difficult to keep, so he persuaded Suarez to stay. The Red Army fought for a season, so that he has the opportunity to wait for the invitation of stronger Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Gerrard’s remarks just touched Suarez’s heart. For almost all Latin American players, the La Liga duo are their dreams, so the Uruguayans accepted Gerrard’s advice and continue to stick to it. One year at Anfield, but in exchange for the Red Army to release Suarez in the summer of 2014.
This background is very important for understanding Suarez in the 2013-14 season. It is after reaching a gentleman agreement with Liverpool that he can unscrupulously display his talents and play a brighter performance, and try his best to play for the Red Army at the end. Won some championships in a season in order to get together well.
So in the 2013-14 season that followed, Suarez dedicated his most peak season in the Red Army to fans, and it may even be the craziest season of his entire career.
Compared to the Barcelona period, Suarez has a lot of freedom in the Red Army this season. He can handle the ball completely according to his own ideas and has unlimited fire rights. This allows the Uruguayan to always complete some amazing cases on the court. Amazingly amazing goal.
In the aforementioned interview, when Suarez recalled his goals this season, he excitedly stated that this was the most wonderful moment for him to play for the Reds because he could score from 40 yards.
Suarez was undoubtedly talking about the 14th round of the Premier League’s home game against Norwich in the 14th round of the Premier League on December 4, 2013. In the 15th minute, he broke the Canary’s goal with a brilliant lob from 40 meters away. And he later scored three goals in a row to complete the "big four".
What's more surprising is that these four goals were completed in four different ways: super long lob shots, grab points in front of the goal, consecutive dribbling shots and free kicks.
This game was almost a portrayal of Suarez's entire season. He was almost omnipotent on the field. He played 34 league games and scored 31 goals throughout the season, and did not include any penalty kicks. This performance even had a grudge against him. Manchester United captain Evra did not hesitate to vote for the Uruguayan in the Player of the Season selection.
Suarez, who was at his peak at the time, might also think that he would use a Premier League championship trophy that fans had longed for as a goodbye to the Reds, but he did not expect good luck...
On May 5, 2014, in the penultimate round of the Premier League, Suarez and Liverpool traveled to London to challenge the Crystal Palace, which had initially shown the temperament of the "King of London". Last week, they just accidentally lost to Chelsea at home in a very good situation, allowing Manchester City behind to tie the points and rely on 8 goal difference to reach the top.
Although they were passive at the time, they still had a chance to regain the initiative in the championship, that is, not only to win the last two rounds, but also to create a big score to brush the goal difference.
The whole team, especially Suarez, who is very competitive, is visiting Selhurst Park with this mentality, but they undoubtedly underestimated the best coach of the season, Tony Pulis. Crystal Palace.
整个团队，特别是竞争激烈的苏亚雷斯（Suarez）都以这种心态来访塞尔瑟斯特公园（Selhurst Park），但他们无疑低估了本赛季最好的教练托尼·普利斯（Tony Pulis）。水晶宫。
As they had imagined, the Reds started very smoothly. Joe Allen turned into the Reds' first scoring in the 18th minute. In the second half, defender Delaney’s own goal and Suarez’s goals helped Liverpool in the 55th minute. Achieved a 3-0 lead.
Under normal circumstances, the overall situation should have been set, but in order to win the goal difference, the Red Army soldiers, especially Suarez, undoubtedly wanted to maximize the results. The Uruguayans even simply celebrated after scoring the third goal. Ask the opposing player for the ball and prepare to kick-off quickly.
However, the entire Red Army at this time would not think that what was waiting for them was not the next goal, but the nightmare black ten minutes.
In the 79th minute, Delaney's vigorous long shot from outside the penalty area made up for the goal for Crystal Palace. At this time, because the goal difference decreased again, the mentality of the Red Army soldiers began to lose balance.
In the two-goal lead, the offense and defense were seriously out of balance. Instead, they were used by Crystal Palace. Two clean counterattacks were scored twice by Gail to tie the score in the 88th minute.
In the Premier League, the Liverpool people finally realized the taste of being reversed by three goals, and this game was also called "Crystanbul" by Crystal Palace fans. This is undoubtedly a great irony to the Red Army.
The draw of this game also means that the Red Army has completely lost the initiative to fight for the championship. If the Red Army lost to Chelsea a week ago, the Red Army was only disappointed, then it is undoubtedly desperate to be drawn in such a shameful way.
After this battle, their only theory to win the title may be to expect West Ham, who has completed relegation, to beat Manchester City in the final round of away games, and obviously this possibility will not be much higher than the Istanbul miracle.
After Gale scored the equalizer goal, the director "relentlessly" pointed the camera at Suarez. The Red Army God of War held his hands behind his head in disappointment, because they would lose regardless of the final result of the game. Party.
After the whistle was blown at the end of the game, Suarez squatted on the ground and buried his face in his jersey. Even if Gerrard and his teammates came to comfort him, it seemed to be of no avail. The Premier League player of the season was in full. The scene of the scene was covered in front of the camera and walked down the field sadly, and the countless Red Army fans on the other end of the camera also burst into tears that night.
At that time, the Red Army fans knew that it was completely unexpected for this team to reach the league runner-up or even the half-time championship. To a large extent, Suarez’s phenomenal performance this season brought them to this and their strength. The height of the mismatch, and the performance of the Reds in the 2014-15 season after Suarez's departure also proved this.
What makes them even more sad is that they not only lost a championship, but also their ace forward. If winning the championship may still have a glimmer of hope to retain the Uruguayan, this result is doomed to the departure of the Red Army No. 7 , And Liverpool, which has just seen hope of revival, will talk about the title and don’t know what year and month it will be.
Missing the championship also made Suarez firmer in his belief in leaving. The logic of the Red Army No. 7 is not difficult to imagine. This season he has done everything he can to help the team. He can't do things in his strongest state. Will drift away.
For this Uruguayan who can do anything in pursuit of victory and even deliberately block the goal with his hands in front of goal, in order to pursue honor, leaving is the only choice.
So, in the summer of 2014, Suarez officially ended his three-and-a-half-year Red Army career and joined Barcelona to pursue his path of honor at the Nou Camp.
For Liverpool fans born in the 80s and 90s, Suarez has a special feeling for them. His personal ability is undoubtedly the best in Liverpool's history, and more importantly, when he joined Liverpool, the Red Army was in The darkest and most turbulent moment of this century.
His arrival and outbreak are like the light of hope brought by a torch-bringer in the dark. The Red Army fans thought he would continue to play the role of Prometheus in their darkest moments, but they did not expect that he was about to Turning and leaving on the eve of dawn, he also completed a counter-attack in the future.
In this post-winning interview, Suarez also responded to the controversial celebration in the Champions League semi-finals last season. "I know the fans are angry at the celebration, and I am sad about it. I accept this, but I also hope that the fans can understand my situation. It was when we played the Champions League semi-finals at home. I spent it here. The best moment of my life, I also think that the fans have not forgotten my attitude when wearing the Red Army shirt. Now I hope they are happy with this year’s league championship."
Although not explicitly stated, the Uruguayan euphemistically stated that he did not regret the celebration. He hoped that the fans would look at him from a professional perspective, look at his identity as a Barcelona player at the time, and look at what he had done for Liverpool. contribution.
Suarez has always been a player with a professional attitude over feelings. For him, many things can be done better than professional player standards, but there is no need.
After all, people can't judge Suarez by Gerrard's standards. Anfield is not his soul dream, but the front desk for his transit and stay before he enters the hall, but the legendary story he writes here is still wonderful enough.
"Unfortunately, it wasn't you. I stayed with me to the end. Zeng walked together but missed the intersection. Thank you for holding my hand and feeling the tenderness." Love is no longer love, but hate is hard to hate. This may be the common aspiration of Liverpool fans who have witnessed Suarez's career in the Red Army for three and a half years.
Unable to end the tribulation, it does not hinder a toast to celebrate. When the Red Army returned to the throne, the back of that lone hero who rode solo Savior countless times is still engraved in the memory of that generation of Liverpool fans and cannot be erased.
