When Luis Suarez was substituted for Ansu Fati against Villarreal, it told a story as the two players received very different reactions from Barcelona fans online.
While Fati has been showered with praise, having scored two goals and assisted once in five La Liga appearances, as per WhoScored, Luis Suarez is nowhere near as popular.
So when Ernesto Valverde’s substitution was tweeted out, it seemed almost inevitable that there would be a comparison between the two:

Suarez has scored 2 goals in 3 La Liga starts and 1 substitute appearance, though this has not been enough to get the supporters on his side, especially after he failed to score in the 0-0 draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
There are many fans who are fed up with the 32-year-old, feeling that he is no longer good enough to represent Barcelona – this means they want him out of the football club, hoping he will take Valverde with him.
A selection of Twitter reaction to Suarez’s performance, including posts from angered Barcelona fans, can be seen below:
