Denis Suarez: If Spain won the tournament I'm not going to cut my hair

If Spain do come out on top at the U21 European Championship, Denis Suarez won't be cutting his hair in celebration but did insist he will come up with something to do in victory.

It has become something of a tradition for victorious players and coaches of late, but the Barcelona man won't be shedding any of his brown locks.

However, he did happily answer a number of quick fire questions relating to his career and life.

Denis Suarez: If Spain won the tournament I'm not going to cut my hair

What would be your ideal system if you were Barcelona coach?
"If I was a coach, I would always play 4-3-3 as both Barcelona and the national team do."

In that system, what would be your ideal position?
"In a 4-3-3, my preferred position would be on the left of the midfield three, where Andres Iniesta plays. With Spain, we play a 4-3-3 and that's where I play."

Do you prefer to score a goal or provide a good assist?
"Both. In the end, a good assist gives you satisfaction but it is also true that scoring a goal is the greatest feeling. An offensive midfielder like me is also asked to score goals and it something that, with the U21 side in particular, I have improved on a lot. I have scored four or five goals in recent games."

Which coach has been the biggest influence on you?
"I have learned something from everyone but I think that the one who has taught me the most has been Marcellin. Eusebio taught me the style of the side with Barcelona B and his Real Sociedad side are quite similar. If I had to pick one though, I'll say Marcellin because he brought out the best in me."

Who is going to win player of the tournament at the European Championship?
"Hopefully it will be one of our players. If the best player comes from our team then it will mean we did well."

Who are the team to beat?
"Germany have a very good squad of players."

What do you do to relax?
"I hang out with friends, often playing Nintendo or PlayStation. I love having fun with my friends as a group."

What's your favourite TV series?
"Just now I'm watching 13 Reasons Why and it is having a big impact on me."

A promise if you win the European Championship?
"I don't know what I'll do if we win. It is very fashionable for a teammate to cut your hair but I'll have to think of something else because in my case, I won't cut my hair."
