Luis Suarez Literally Spent Five Minutes Trying To Get A Yellow Card And Failed
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is one booking away from an automatic suspension, so in an attempt to try and go into their top of the league clash with Atletico Madrid in two weeks time with a clean record, he tried his god-damn hardest to get a yellow card.
In a hilarious string of events in the final minutes of last night's game against Girona, Suarez grabbed a defender's foot, climbed over someone's back and even pretended to be a goalkeeper, but referee Javier Alberola Rojas was having absolutely none of it and waved away his attempts.
People on Twitter even suggested that he tried to ask the referee for a yellow card.
The 31-year-old even took around 10/15 seconds to take a throw-in, but he still didn't get that yellow card to rule him out of next week's game against Las Palmas and the Barcelona forward couldn't help but smile at referee Alberola Rojas.
Here's how social media reacted to Suarez's antics:
Suarez spent the last five minutes trying to get a booking, but was unsuccessful. He's one yellow away from a ban and wanted to miss Las Palmas before Atletico. Alba managed to get his, though.

LMAO this Ref is my new favourite. Straight out refusing to give Suarez a yellow card. Unreal elite mentality and it's his first ever game refereeing at the Nou Camp.
