Luis Suarez feared he was not good enough for Barcelona

Luis Suarez has scored 26 goals in La Liga for Barcelona this season.

Luis Suarez has revealed that he was apprehensive about whether he was good enough to don the Barcelona jersey before his move to the La Liga giants.

The Uruguayan striker has been a revelation at the Nou Camp since his move from Liverpool in 2014.

He won the treble in his first season and has made a huge impact this year, with 26 goals and 12 assists in the league, as part of the attacking trident alongside Brazil star Neymar and club favourite, Lionel Messi.

The trio have accounted for 69 of Barca's 86 goals in the La Liga this season, with Suarez just two goals behind Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo who is on 28 goals.

"I dreamed of playing for Barcelona, but even I didn't believe I was good enough to be Barca's No. 9." Suarez told Helden TV.

"You always dream of playing with the best and now I'm doing just that, with [Lionel] Messi, Neymar, [Andres] Iniesta, [Sergio] Busquets and so on."

Suarez was also quick to praise his strike partners Messi and Neymar, claiming that the unselfish mentality between them, has been a key reason for Barcelona's impressive tally of 86 goals in 30 La Liga matches.

"We don't care about who scores the goals, only about the team doing well," he added.

"We're all clear about our target, which is to win together. We're all happy -- there is no jealousy between myself, Neymar and Messi.

"Everything comes naturally between us."

Barcelona have a nine-point lead ahead of Atletico Madrid in second place while archrivals Real Madrid sit in third, 10 points behind the leaders.

This weekend will see Suarez go up against Ronaldo as Barcelona bids to end Madrid's slim title hopes in the Clasico on Saturday.
