Jamie Carragher questions Luis Suarez role at Barcelona

Jamie Carragher warns Luis Suarez that he will have to tailor his game around Lionel Messi if he is to fit in at Barcelona.

Jamie Carragher has warned ex-Liverpool star Luis Suarez that he will have to tailor his game around Barcelona "king" Lionel Messi if he is to be a success in La Liga.

The Reds legend admitted that Brendan Rodgers built his side around Suarez, though the Uruguayan should not expect the same treatment at the Camp Nou.

"Clearly, Luis can be a star for Barcelona," Carragher is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. "He has the ability to play with any player and thrive for any club but it is not a given, by any means, that he will simply turn up in Catalonia and replicate what he was doing for Liverpool.

"For all that we admire Barcelona, for all that we have marvelled at how tiki-taka has changed our perceptions of how the game should be played, they are not an easy team to play for. You don't just pull on that distinctive jersey and join in the fun, particularly if you are a striker.

"Strikers who are brought into Barcelona don't get the option of operating through the middle because that is the domain of Lionel Messi. He is the king, the man around whom this particular team is built and others have to tailor their game accordingly."

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Suarez will face a wage cut if he bites an opponent while wearing a Barcelona shirt.
