Luis Suarez has said that
The two attackers have become good friends during their time together at the Camp Nou and Suarez says the duo hit it off right from the start.
The Uruguayan recently completed five years of being at the club and is the fourth highest scorer in the history of the Blaugrana with 185 goals. He's currently only nine away from Ladislao Kubala, who is third on the list.
Speaking to Barcelona’s official website, Suarez said, “Messi has helped me a lot in my personal growth. We had an affinity from the beginning. From coexistence came friendship, and the moments I spent with him also helped on the pitch.
"Everyone knows that he is the best in the world. He has proven it and continues to prove it day after day. He has shown me his companionship a thousand times. He helped me when I was fighting for the Golden Boot. The other day, at Eibar, he gave me a goal."
Barca have a tricky period over the coming month, with Champions League fixtures against Borussia Dortmund and Inter, a trip to Atletico Madrid and the rescheduled Clasico with Real Madrid on December 18.
Luis Suarez, though, is relishing what awaits them.
He said, "A very nice month is ahead. We like those, both as foot
"We have not had a simple league start. We gave away points that in other years we hadn't lost, but we know that other teams are also competing well," the Uruguayan concluded.
