Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed that he never imagined having a successful football career.
The Uruguayan international left the Merseyside club and completed a switch to Barcelona last year. He was made to wait for his first team debut after he was serving his lengthy ban for biting Italy's defender Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
Suarez made his debut against Real Madrid in October 2015 as he saw his side suffer a 3-1 defeat. However, the former Liverpool star has managed to create a brilliant partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar to help Barcelona reach the Champions League final and also lead the league table.
The South American striker has netted 25 goals and managed 25 assists in all competitions. Out of all the goals he has scored, Suarez admitted that scoring his first goal in a Barcelona shirt will be impossible for him to forget.
"I always dreamt of getting far in football and becoming professional, but I never imagined I would get where I am, in Barcelona, which for me is the best team in the world. I never imagined the dream would come true and that I would play for Barcelona," Suarez explained.
"The memories... obviously, my first goal, even more so wearing the Barcelona shirt, which was in Cyprus, against Apoel or for instance against Manchester City. It was a very beautiful moment, impossible to forget both for me and for the whole team."
Barcelona have reached the final of the Champions League after knocking Bayern Munich in the semifinal. They will take on Juventus in the final in Berlin in June. Suarez has set his sights on winning Europe's elite club competition with the Catalan club.
"As a kid, I watched the Champions League on TV and now it is incredible to play in, it's something I never imagined. And my dream, my wish, is to win it," the former Ajax man said.
"To me, same as to every footballer, the opportunity to play in a Champions League final would be something unique, something every footballer dreams of. Winning would be the top, that is the aspiration of every player. Winning the Champions League would be incredible," he concluded.
