Striker Luis Suarez has revealed he is keen to surpass Laszlo Kubala on the list of Barcelona's all-time top goalscorers and also win more silverware.

The former Liverpool forward has been out of action since he suffered a knee injury in January but he is set to play again when the LaLiga 2019-20 campaign resumes following the COVID-19 chaos.

Suarez, 33, needs to score four goals to overtake third-placed Kubala in Blaugrana's record books.

"I always say that records or landmarks come by themselves," he told Barca TV. "You just need to focus on helping the team as best you can.

"The chance to move past a legend like Kubala is very welcome. It means you left your mark at a great club like Barca."

The former Ajax star added: "I think it's a mix of everything.

"I think we are not used to playing in such heat in the middle of summer, but we are acclimatising ourselves to playing matches in the heat.

"As for the fans, it will be unusual to play in a stadium without a crowd, but we will adapt.

"I have done it before, so we will just try to focus on the football and doing well and winning matches in the league, which we all want so much to win."

Since Suarez joined Los Cules from Premier League club Liverpool back in 2014 he has registered a total of 191 goals for the LaLiga champions Barca.
