Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has given some words of wisdom to his teammate Gerard Deulofeu, who joined the Catalan giants over the summer.

This is according to Spanish news outlet Sport, who say that the Uruguayan has said that the former Everton winger needs to “listen to advice”.

The former Liverpool ace has been seen telling Deulofeu off a number of times so far this season according to the Mirror, with reports evens suggesting that Suarez doesn’t believe in the Spanish international’s ability, however Suarez has dismissed these rumours by stating that he does the same to everyone.

As per Sport, when speaking about his Spanish teammate, Suarez said “He is a player with experience. He has played in big leagues and what he has to do is listen to advice, not just from forwards, but from the manager. ”

The 30-year-old then went on to add “He is doing that and he’s learning. He’s not the only player I’ve given a ticking-off to. We all do it. People tell me off, too”.

So far this season, Suarez has been more than poor for Ernesto Valverde’s side. In 14 games for the Catalan side, the player has only managed to find the net on three occasions.

Since joining Barca however, Suarez’s time in Spain could’ve be going much better. The forward has managed to score 124 goals in 161 appearances, with the player also managing to bag 73 assists in that time as well.

For his teammate Deulofeu, things are similar. In 13 appearances, the Spanish international has only managed to find the net twice, with the winger only being able to contribute three assists as well.

During his time with Italian giants AC Milan, the former Everton wide-man was fairly successful, as he managed to score four times and assist three goals in 17 league appearances.
