Barca's stars were handed a "champions" jersey following their incredible season where they stormed to the Spanish top-flight title.

The Catalan giants currently sit nine points ahead of Atletico Madrid and 15 above Real with just two games to play.

Superstars Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba were naturally handed a commemorative top.

But bizarrely, no fewer than 30 players - and staff - were given the jersey, including Suarez.

The 25-year-old Spaniard - who spent the second half of the season mostly on the bench at Arsenal - played just twice in La Liga this season.

He featured in the 4-0 win away to rivals Espanyol, as well as the 5-0 drubbing of Levante - for a total of 17 minutes of action.

And he played against PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham in the Champions League.

He had most impact in the Copa del Rey - in which he scored his only two goals of the season against minnows Leonesa.

Suarez was shipped off on loan to Arsenal in the January window - but even then has featured just four times in the league.

The Spanish midfielder recently revealed he would not play for Arsenal again after his season was cut short through injury.

Suarez apologised to fans for a series of knocks hampering his form - playing just 67 minutes of Premier League action in all.

Despite his woes in England, Suarez is still on course to win FIVE trophies this season with parent club Barcelona.

Barca are still gunning for the Champions League, after winning La Liga, the Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are still going for Europa League glory - with Suarez making brief cameos in the games against BATE Borisov.
