Watch Luis Suarez's bizarre reaction to giant Manchester City badge before Atletico Madrid's Champions League clash

LUIS SUAREZ had a bizarre reaction to a giant Manchester City badge ahead of Atletico's Champions League tie.

The former Liverpool striker was an unused substitute in his side's 1-0 Champions League quarter-final first leg defeat to City.


But before kick-off, Suarez was making his way to the dressing room when a giant Man City badge confronted him on the floor in front of him.

Suarez stopped dead in his tracks just as he was about to walk over it.

The Uruguayan managed to swerve it, and walk around the edge without setting foot on the crest, a gesture which has been picked up on social media.

Uefa's Champions League Twitter account tweeted: "Luis Suarez. Respect."

And then proving it wasn't a one off, Suarez avoided walking over the City badge AGAIN – but this time when joined by team-mates Rodrigo de Paul and Angel Correa.

A Kevin de Bruyne goal sealed the win for City on the night.

Second half substitute Phil Foden picked out the Belgian after a lovely turn and a wonderful finish capped off the sweeping move.

Manager Pep Guardiola has insisted that his side will go to Madrid in the second leg and try to win instead of defending the 1-0 lead.

The Spaniard said: "We will go there to score and try and win again.

"We played an incredible top side who are difficult to face but it is a good result.

"Unfortunately at the end we had one or two more chances with Kevin to score more goals [and did not]. We can attack a bit better.

"We go there not to defend the result but to try and win the game."
