Barcelona’s Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez (R) and Juventus’ Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner vie for the ball during their UEFA Champions League Final football match in Berlin on Saturday.

BERLIN, June 7- Luis Suarez described his debut season at Barcelona as “incredible” after he scored the vital second goal as the Catalans became the first side to ever win the treble twice with a 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final.

“It’s incredible, it’s something unique. To win these trophies you have to suffer,” he said.

“I think after the equaliser they pushed on a little more, but we have players who made the difference. We have gone from game-to-game and achieved all our objectives.

“The best thing about this side is the spirit and the fact we’ve been united since the start of the season.”

-Rakitic resolve-

Fellow goal scorer and Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic insisted his side will not lose their hunger for more trophies after landing the treble in his first season with the Catalan giants.

The Croatian international opened the score after just four minutes of Saturday’s 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final as Luis Enrique’s men became the first side to win the treble twice after already sealing La Liga and the Copa del Rey this season.

“It’s a final, it’s normal that we had to suffer. They got into the game as it went on,” said Rakitic.

“We deserved the win. I hope we don’t stop here, and next year there’s more to win and we want more,” he added.
