Suarez admits goalscoring ‘worries’

Luis Suarez has admitted that his goalscoring struggles for Barcelona made him become increasingly worried about his contribution to the team.

The Uruguayan striker scored his first goal since early January during Sunday's 5-2 victory over Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, and he spoke of his relief at ending his mini-drought after the game.

"I'm very self-critical but I knew I'd get the goal with the support of my family and friends," he told reporters.

"It was a tough game. We scored ​​quick goals, but they kept fighting until the end.

"We know that our intensity must always be at the maximum. You have to match their strength because they play very well in that regard.

"[Referring to his missed chance], I told Gorka [Iraizoz] it was a superb save. I'm not nervous, but what worries me is when I feel like I'm not helping the team.

"It's a privilege to play alongside these the two phenomena [Neymar and Lionel Messi]. What I have to do is enjoy [my football].
