Barcelona's Luis Suarez wants Lionel Messi's left foot, Neymar's pace, joy

Luis Suarez would "love" to have Lionel Messi's left foot and Neymar's pace and joy for the game, the Barcelona striker has revealed.

Suarez helped Barcelona to an historic Treble last season, and along with superstar South American teammates Messi and Neymar has put the club in position to repeat the feat in 2016.

The attacking trio have accounted for 94 goals this campaign already, blending their different talents to compose a near-unstoppable front line for the La Liga leaders, with Suarez contributing 41 in all competitions.

While accepting the award for Spanish news agency EFE's best Latin American player on Monday, the 29-year-old Uruguayan acknowledged he is far from a finished product, and cited aspects of his teammates' game he'd like to have for his own.

"I'd love to have Messi's left foot, which is one-of-a-kind in the world, remarkable, and the pace and happiness of Neymar," Suarez said after receiving the award.

Despite collecting the individual honour, Suarez insisted he and his Barcelona teammates value collective goals first and foremost.

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar have combined for 94 goals this season.

"We prioritise the group objective. None of us compete with the others, but each enjoy the moment. I feel content, happy, and I'm helping the team, which is key.

"All the players have a great relationship and it shows, we're always laughing amongst ourselves and hugging, not just the three of us.

"It's not about affection, it's about support. Nothing's planned, it all comes from the inside, and what we do is enjoy it, and if we are happy, we will enjoy it."

Barcelona edged Sevilla 2-1 on Sunday to maintain their eight-point advantage in La Liga. The Catalans are also still alive in the Copa del Rey, reaching the final, and the Champions League.

Suarez added that he and his Blaugrana teammates are pushing to win a second consecutive Treble, but know it won't be easy.

"Now we have a nice advantage in the league, we're in the cup final, we know that winning the Champions League is more than difficult," he added.

"We will try to do the same again, to keep going, to make our mark on the club."
