Sergio Busquets: Luis Suarez is the World's No.1 Striker

FC Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has labelled team mate Luis Suarez as the best striker in world football.

Suarez returned to the FC Barcelona team in their 5-2 win over Valencia CF, with two goals in a second half substitute appearance.

The 32-year old suffered an injury in the first game of the season away at Athletic Bilbao, and his return was heralded by the experienced Spanish international.

"He is the best striker in the world.

"He gives us so much in terms of work rate, hunger and goals.

"The goals he scores give some many points to the team and we are pleased to have him back fit again.

"He is as hungry as ever, and I am confident he will lead us to success this season."

Suarez has scored 133 goals in 165 La Liga appearances following his move to Catalonia from Liverpool ahead of the 2014-15 season, and he is up to third in the clubs all time La Liga goal scorers.
