Former Barcelona chief Ariedo Braida is convinced Juventus have pulled off a coup regarding the imminent signing of Luis Suarez.

The departing Barca striker has agreed personal terms with Juve and is due to sign with the Serie A champions in days – if not hours.

Braida told Tuttosport: “He’s like (George) Weah and (Andriy) Shevchenko, he has a unique fury and passes it on to his teammates.

“I told him ‘you are Friulian like me’ and he already spoke a little Italian.

“He will always score, he is a born striker and he will have a great time with Cristiano Ronaldo: they are two born bombers.”
