Some years later, the rest of the world has long moved on, and Boateng was playing for Eibar against Suarez’s Barcelona. “After the game, I changed my shirt with him, so I brought the shirt home and I put it in the laundry and my wife saw it,” he recalls.

“I was sitting in the sitting room watching the TV and she came in front of me and asked me, ‘So, of all the players you were playing against you could not see anybody to change the shirt with, only Suarez?’ I said, ‘Come on, this is nothing, it is a football match.’

“I don’t have anything personal against him. A lot of people in Ghana still hold that grudge but for me, no. I don’t hold anything against him.” Many others see the situation rather differently. Boateng’s wife included. “She asked me to take it out of the house.”
