Barcelona suffer through 'lack of communication', claims Suarez

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez reckons Lionel Messi came in for some rough treatment against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames on Sunday. The captain returned to the starting XI for the match but could not find the back of the net, as Barcelona were held to a goalless draw. Suarez played down suggestions Messi was not fully fit after the match and offered an alternative explanation for his subdued showing. “If he played, then it’s because he’s at one hundred percent,” he said. "However, it was difficult for him to play because he was being constantly fouled". The draw means Barcelona miss the chance to move eight points clear at the top of the table, but they do extend their lead to six points over Real Madrid in second place. Barcelona's recent indifferent form can be explained by a lack of communication between the players, according to Luis Suarez. "There was a lack of communication in the first half," Uruguay forward explained.
