"At no time was I overweight. It was like the coach (Luis Enrique) said at one point: 'Tell me when they saw a thin Luis Suárez'. He also said that, if they wanted, I had had liposuction, and that caused a lot of amusement," said Suarez.
"The doctor that did the tests and studies at the club told me that I was one of the six Barcelona players that had the lowest body-fat percentage and weight. What was said was something that caught my attention.
"But I laughed a lot and it caused me a lot of amusement. Especially when my Uruguay team-mates told me: 'Fatty, do not eat any more.' It did not affect me at any moment. It's something that's part of the newspaper game."
