Luis Suarez paid an unusual price for celebrating his career milestone on social media
Last weekend Barcelona took a huge step ahead in La Liga’s title race by winning against their arch-rivals Real Madrid. Barca moved 14 points clear of Real Madrid in the La Liga, as Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, and Aleix Vidal registered there name on the scoresheet.
Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal ruled out in the second minute of the world’s most competitive match for offside. In the second half of the game, Luiz Suarez scored his tenth goal of the season to give Barcelona a much-needed lead in the game.
The key moment of the match came in the 63rd minute. Dani Carvajal was shown a red card for touching the ball with his hand, inside the penalty area. This incident resulted in a penalty kick for the Catalan Giants and Lionel Messi took the advantage of the situation and scored from the spot. Aleix Vidal scored the third goal to add gloss to the scoreline.
Luis Suarez And 400 Goals:
The Uruguayan helped Barcelona to a 3-0 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu. His 54th-minute strike at the Santiago Bernabeu brought up the landmark of 400 goals at the domestic and international level for Suarez. The Uruguayan notched 82 goals for Liverpool during his three and a half year of stay at Anfield.
Suarez is his country’s record goalscorer and has scored 49 goals for Uruguay national team. The 30-year-old has even played for Nacional (2 goals), Groningen (15 goals) and Ajax (115 goals). The forward joined the Catalan Giants in the summer of 2014 and has gone on to score 131 goals for the club.
Punished On Twitter:
Eagle-eyed social media followers have observed that Twitter has hilariously punished Luis Suarez for celebrating his 400th career goal. The Uruguayan recently scored his 400th goal of his career and hence took this opportunity to celebrate this milestone with his social media followers. The Barcelona striker uploaded an image onto his Twitter account which included pictures of him playing for all his clubs and country.
Luis Suarez celebrated scoring his 400th goal by putting photos in different shirts throughout the career – and now those pictures have been removed by Twitter after some copyright holder complained.
Apparently, even Suarez can't use photos of himself. pic.twitter.com/Vc38qpVNUH

Yet on the evening of Christmas, Twitter played the role of the Grinch. The social media platform removed that post from Suarez’s feed citing copyright infringement. The Uruguayan uploaded the same image on his Instagram handle which is still live.
Luis Suarez had had an incredible career across two different continents in 4 different countries. His off-field antics have been as famous as his on-field exploits. It has to be said, it is incredibly funny when a player is reported for copyright infringement for posting his own picture on his social media handle.
