  • Soccer-Matchwinner Suarez repaying Barcelona's faith

    By Iain Rogers MADRID, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Barcelona's decision to buy Luis Suarez from Liverpool following his ban for biting an opponent at the 2014 World Cup raised a few eyebrows but it increasingly appears their faith in the Uruguay forward was justified.

While he struggled to find the net himself in his first few months back, he earned praise from Barca coach Luis Enrique for his work rate and link-up play and, perhaps more importantly, managed to avoid any repeat of the controversy that has dogged his career. As the season approaches a crucial stage, Suarez is starting to motor and struck again in La Liga on Saturday following Tuesday's brace against Manchester City in the Champions League.
