'It is more comfortable' – Messi and Suarez admit to peeing sitting down



The Barcelona duo have struck up quite the partnership at Camp Nou, and it appears that their understanding stretches well beyond the football field

Barcelona team-mates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have revealed that their understanding stretches a little too far, with both admitting to peeing sitting down.

On the field, a professional partnership between the South American forwards has Barcelona chasing down domestic and European honours once again.

The pair have struck up a formidable bond, with Brazilian superstar Neymar also getting in on the act as part of the fearsome MSN triumvirate.

Their goal-laden exploits on the field have won them a host of admirers, and plenty of silverware.

It is, however, their actions off the pitch that have been causing quite a stir in the wake of an interview aired by Uruguayan television station Canal 10.

Messi and Suarez were quizzed on subjects such as their favourite dessert and best film, before the conversation took a rather odd turn.

The pair were asked about their toilet habits, with Messi replying after a glance in the direction of Suarez: “What? Do you sit down? Me too.”

He added, amid fits of giggles from the duo: “It is more comfortable. You get up in the morning all asleep and you stick it down there, and that’s it.”

While revealing a little too much about their lives off the pitch, Messi and Suarez have been impressing on it again this season.

The former has netted 39 times in as many outings across all competitions, while the latter has 29 goals to his name.
