The Time Luis Suarez Spent Five Minutes Trying To Get A Yellow Card And Still Failed

Luis Suarez is known by many for his antics on the pitch, and there was a moment during a game against Girona that summed him up to a tee.

Back in February, 2018, the ever-controversial Uruguayan was 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 with a clean record in two weeks time, he tried his hardest to pick up a yellow card.

In a hilarious string of events in the final minutes 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 Barca's next 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 memorably tried to get Chile's Gonzalo Jara sent off in the Copa America when he tripped up a pitch invader, while he was booked this season for sneakily trying to get a look at the VAR screen during Atletico Madrid's Champions League game with Lokomotiv Moscow.
