Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has warned Luis Suárez that he might not be welcomed at Anfield following his on-field antics against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final first leg.

Suárez scored the first goal in a 3-0 win for Barcelona at the Camp Nou and the Uruguayan was not shy in celebrating his goal against his former club.

The striker was also reportedly involved in a tunnel bust-up with Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson after the pair clashed on-field and exchanged words.

Carragher believes that Suárez’s actions on Wednesday night will have consequences when he returns to Anfield for the second leg of the tie, telling ViaSport: I don’t think it will be as warm as he would have hoped.

He was Luis Suárez, you love him when he is in your team and you hate him when he plays for the opposition. It was the first time he was in the opposition and I don’t think Liverpool fans will have liked him.”

He plays on the edge and is very street-wise. A great first goal for him but I don’t think it will be the hero homecoming he will be hoping for.”

Before the game, Suárez made it known that he would celebrate in the event that he scored against Liverpool in an interview with the Daily Mail: “In the build-up to the game it’s nice to talk about how massively grateful I am to Liverpool for all they gave me but, you know me, once I’m on the pitch there will be no friendships, no companions, no thought for all the lovely moments, I’ll defend the colours of Barcelona with all the pride in the world.”

When asked about the second-leg at Anfield, Jürgen Klopp mentioned that Liverpool have a tough task to overcome in Newcastle before the game on Tuesday night. “I don’t have to think about the next game against Barcelona yet, we have Newcastle and that will have all of our focus,” the German said.

“We will go to the hotel, have a proper sleep, get up in the morning and fly home. Whatever happens, these boys, I couldn’t be more proud of them.”

“People who haven’t seen the game will see the result and say strange things about it, but they always strike back in these kind of games. How brave they are, I just like it. And in the end it is still 3-0, it will not change. So let’s fly home and play Newcastle.”
