The Uruguayan was praised by his coach on the eve of the anniversary of his Barça debut.
Sunday’s match against Eibar marks exactly one year since Luis Suarez made his Barcelona debut in the Clasico against Real Madrid.
Speaking ahead of the visit of the Basque side, Luis Enrique says the Uruguayan forward is as motivated as he’s been since he signed for the club from Liverpool last summer.
“Suarez is as motivated as last year,” the Barça boss said as he looked back on the last 365 days with the Uruguayan striker.
“It was a very special season for him because he came back from suspension, but he is pretty much the same this year.
“He has a lot of character and does not need any special motivation. He is doing very well, contributing a lot, helping out with assists and I am very happy with his performances.
“We attack in a very structured way. We have a lot of possession of the ball. Suarez is a centre forward who uses space superbly.
“He is a basic pillar of our team both on and off the ball. He is doing exactly what we want him to do.”
Going beyond Suarez’s form inside the club, Luis Enrique suggested that the 28-year-old is in fact among the best on the planet.
“Suarez is one of the best attackers in the world at the moment,” he added.
“He already was one of the best when he came here and has adapted very well. He is very competitive and brings a different type of character this club normally have.”
