Barcelona 2-goal hero Suarez: Man City jeers inspired me

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez admits Manchester City's fans inspired him on Tuesday night.

The former Liverpool firebrand struck twice in Barca's Champions League win as he was booed throughout the game.

Said the Uruguayan: "Obviously it is pleasing, first of all to be able to help the team, they were important goals in a Champions League knockout game.

"Of course, though, to come back to England and against a team you're always motivated to play against… there are certain types of players like me who get more inspired, more motivated when fans boo them, it helps motivate you a bit more."
