Barcelona striker Luis Suarez stated that his team-mate Leo Messi has helped him " a lot" in his "personal growth" since he signed for the team five seasons ago.

"I had a friendship with Leo from the start. From living together, you turn into friends and the moments that you spend with him also show on the pitch," Suarez states in an interview with the media.

The two South American footballers are neighnours in Barcelona (Castelldefels) and have a very strong, personal relationship. "He has shown me companionship many times. He helps me when I was fighting for the Ballon d'Or and he also was. The other day, on the pitch at Eibar, he gifted me a goal," he recalled.

In his sixth season at Barcelona, Luis Suarez has already scored 185 goals, something which puts him amongst the top five goalscorers in the team's history.

"It is a priviledge to be in the 'top 5' goalscorers at the best club in the world, a club that has so much history. When I arrived at Barça, I was fulfilling a dream. I wanted to enjoy it with my team-mates. I didn't think it would come to this," he confessed.

Moreover, he higlighted his special connection with Camp Nou. "People know that I never give up and value my work, the insistence I put in each game," he said.
