Atletico Madrid forward, Luis Suarez would not sit back and watch his friends being humiliated by football fans anywhere in the world. Hence, the 35-year-old Uruguayan striker took it personally when the fans of Paris Saint Germain booed two of his best friends, Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Recall that on March 13, 2022, Bordeaux visited the Prac Des Princes for a French Ligue 1 game which ended 3-0 in favour of PSG. The game was PSG’s first outing after Real Madrid knocked them out of the UEFA Champions League in the round of 16 stage of the competition.
Most PSG fans believe that Lionel Messi and Neymar did not do enough to prevent the team from crashing out of the Champions League. Hence, as the players were introduced ahead of the league game against Bordeaux, the club’s fans booed Neymar and Messi immediately their names were mentioned.
The two players, especially Messi who was idolized during his days at FC Barcelona, have never experienced such humiliation in their football career.
Hence, Luis Suarez, who enjoyed the best of his football career playing alongside Messi and Neymar decided to speak on their behalf. Suarez took to his Instagram story to describe football as a game without a memory.
“As always #footballwithoutmemory, always with you. Love you both so much”, Luis Suarez who played alongside Messi and Neymar at FC Barcelona between 2013 and 2017 wrote in defense of his former teammates.

Luis Suarez, Neymar, and Messi (MSN), the football trio the world might never forget
There was a point in the history of football that other clubs across Europe were scared to face FC Barcelona due to the club’s front three – Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar.
Though the three players are from three rival South American countries – Messi (Argentina), Suarez (Uruguay), and Neymar (Brazil), they came together to form the deadliest attack line in the world of football.
Even though they are all super talented and famous in their own right, they were able to manage their egos and were never selfish in terms of their partnership on the pitch.
The partnership was known as the MSN, Messi+Suarez+Neymar. The trio shook the world of football and won everything there was to win in the game.
Barcelona enjoyed one of the best eras in the history of the club under the MSN. The trio which came together in the 2014-2015 season and disbanded in the 2016-2017 season helped the club to win two La Liga titles, a Champions League, three Copa del Rey, and the Club World Cup.
Before Neymar decided to abandon the MSN to join PSG for a world transfer record, the MSN had scored a combined 363 goals in three seasons.
Now, 30-year-old Neymar and 34-year-old Lionel Messi are playing at PSG while 35-year-old Luis Suarez is currently winding down his career at Atletico Madrid.
