Suarez then got to share his Golden Shoe with Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

This time around, the former Ajax man did not share the individual award with Ronaldo as his goalscoring stats were far better than Ronaldo’s.

The Barcelona pointsman is now keen to continue with his current employers and wants to retire at Barcelona.

This decision rules out any possibilities of his return to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

The ex-Liverpool star is aware that he has to stay on top of his game if he has to retain his place in the starting lineup.

“I want to thank Barca for bringing me here and allowing me to fulfill my goals.

“My team-mates play a part in all my goals.

“I have magnificent team-mates who make it easy for me.
