Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis and Barcelona striker Luis Suarez exchanged remarks about each other following the 1-1 draw between both sides in La Liga on Wednesday night.
The squabble between the two players was the result of a dangerous foul from Suarez on Luis.
In the 83rd minute of the game at Nou Camp, Suarez caught Luis with his studs as the Brazilian was attempting to clear the ball. The Uruguayan escaped with a yellow card for his foul.

The foul left a nasty wound on Luis’s foot. Following the game, the full-back posted a picture of his foot on his Instagram account with a sarcastic caption “At least he didn’t touch me!”.
The picture clearly showed that Suarez’s challenge had left a hole in Luis’ foot.
However, when Suarez was asked about the incident, he quipped back with an age-old argument of “football is a game for men”.
He said: “Football is for men. Everything stays on the pitch. If everyone uploaded what happens [on the pitch to social media accounts] the game would become a circus.”
