Luis Suarez admits he was in “a very bad way” after Barcelona were stunned by Liverpool at Anfield in the Champions League semi-final.
The Reds mounted a remarkable comeback to turn around a 3-0 deficit from the first leg at the Nou Camp, winning 4-0 at Anfield to reach the final in Madrid.
Liverpool went on to win the trophy, while Suarez admits it took him a while to get over the defeat to his former side.
“The days after, back in Barcelona, were the worst moments of my life and career along with the 2014 World Cup, I wanted to disappear from the world,” he told Fox Sports.
“I didn’t want to take my children to school, everyone could see I was in a very bad way, I had days I didn’t want to do anything, they were very difficult moments.”
Suarez admits he never thought Barca would throw away their first leg advantage.
“I didn’t see it because we are Barcelona and we thought we’d have two or three chances to score,” he said.
“But we became nervous, we gave stupid passes away, we didn’t show the right attitude. When the first goal came we didn’t know how to react, we knew we had really messed up.
“After the game in the dressing room no-one could say anything, there was sadness, bitterness and disappointment because we knew we’d given an awful image.”
