Liverpool fans BOO Luis Suarez as old hero is subbed off… even though he refused to celebrate disallowed Atletico goal

LIVERPOOL fans booed their old hero Luis Suarez as he was subbed at Anfield despite the Uruguayan refusing to celebrate when he thought he had scored.

Suarez looked to have pulled one back against his old side during Atletico’s 2-0 Champions League defeat, but it was ruled out for an offside in the build-up.

Rodrigo De Paul launched a long free-kick into Liverpool’s box with the home side 2-0 up just before the hour mark.

José María Giménez rose above Fabinho to nod back to Suarez on the edge of the box and the 34-year-old let rip.

His effort took a huge deflection off Joel Matip and past Alisson but Suarez remained calm – seemingly out of respect to his old club.

Either way, his celebration – or lack of – did not matter soon after.

First VAR spotted Gimenez was offside so the goal was chalked off.

And then just two minutes later, Suarez was subbed and booed by some sections of the home crowd as he made his way off to be replaced by Hector Herrera.


Ahead of the match, Suarez revealed he still has a lot of love for Liverpool and said: “Any player would want to play there.”

But he had a frustrating night on his return to his old home.

He was booked and Squawka Football revealed other than the disallowed goal, he had zero shots, created zero chances, completed zero take-ons and won zero duels.
