Evra calls old rival Luis Suarez 'the best No 9' | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Patrice Evra has put his past animosity with Luis Suarez aside to congratulate the Barcelona striker on his latest award.

Suarez served an eight-match ban while at Liverpool after the Football Association found him guilty of racially abusing Evra during a game against Manchester United.

The Uruguayan, who claimed his use of language was misunderstood, later refused Evra's handshake before another United-Liverpool match at Old Trafford.

But their feud is a thing of the past judging by Evra's reaction to Suarez winning the Golden Shoe award.

The Juventus defender posted a picture of Suarez with the trophy on his Instagram page, accompanied by the message: "In my Instagram there is only love and never hate!

"Luis - you're a great player, the best No 9. Congratulations. I love this game."

The Golden Shoe ranks top goalscorers in European league through a points system where goals in the major five leagues are worth two points each, and those in lower-ranked leagues worth less.

Suarez topped the charts with 40 for Barcelona in the 2015/16 La Liga season and also shared the award with Cristiano Ronaldo in 2013/14 after scoring 31 times for Liverpool.
