‘Suarez? I’m not MacGyver!’

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique insisted “I’m not MacGyver” in response to whether Luis Suarez’s goal against Valencia on Saturday should have been disallowed.

The Uruguayan appeared to be offside when he took on his goal, which was ultimately cancelled out by Santi Mina in a 1-1 draw, but the Coach refused to chime in on the debate as he compared himself to the fictional secret agent.

“I have nothing to criticise the players for,” he said after the game.

“We had a very complete game on a very difficult pitch.

“We had ownership of the game and conceded virtually no transitions.

“Valencia, very well supported by their fans, scored from Paco Alcacer’s great play and Santi Mina’s great finish.

“The pitch was in perfect condition. We created many chances but lacked efficacy.

“Still, I’m happy with how the game went.

“I don’t believe [the MSN were wasteful]. We have players of a very high calibre who know how difficult it is to score goals, but we should’ve won.

“I thought [Lionel Messi] did very well and was in sync with the whole team. Physically he’s getting better. He’s key and indispensable for us.

“[On whether Suarez was offside], I didn’t see anything. I’m good but not that good.

“I’m not MacGyver! I have enough to do during a match as it is.”
