To be able to play alongside Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, and Ivan Rakitic, it’s fair to say; you have to be able to stand your ground as one of the best footballers in the world. Well, Luis Suarez does precisely that. And yes, he’s considered to be one of the best strikers in the world too. Read on to find out more about this incredibly talented footballer.
Luis Alberto Suarez Diaz was born on the 24th of January 1987. Raised in Salto, Uruguay, he is one of seven boys. Having six other siblings means for an excellent social skill set. With the boys playing football on the street from an early age, it was clear even at that age, the confidence and swagger came naturally to him. The family moved to Montevideo when he was seven years old, but only a few years later, his parents separated. This meant the young boys had to get together and earn a living to supply an income for the family. Working hard but struggling through poverty, the Barcelona star was once a street sweeper.
The life wasn’t cuddling this talented athlete. It was not easy for him to handle the divorce of his mother and father; therefore, he had to stop playing football for some time. However, influenced by his partner Sofia, he went back to National at some point in his late teenage days. She was his inspiration to push and grow in this sport and become what he is today – a fabulous soccer player. He started getting good offers, and one of his first big teams was Ajax from Holland. His performance was magnificent, so after only two years, he earned captain position and started writing history. He scored 35 goals out of 33 games with his brilliant game. Soon, he was part of Liverpool’s club and also FC Barcelona. The world knows him as a very intelligent player, but besides, he was filling out pages of tabloids due to misbehavior. He was aggressive at the football pitch several times, and also the accusation towards him was going due to mistreating on a national basis once. It seems that he loses his temper easily while running after the ball at the pitch. However, most of the people from Uruguay and the ones who know him better talk everything the best about him and consider him as a person with a big heart. Currently, he still plays for Barcelona, and this transfer was signed six years ago, with a fee of $91 million. By the amount of the transfer, he is considered as one of the most expensive footballers in the history of this sport.
A famous athlete met his wife when he was fifteen only. The couple got married in 2010, and they have three children – two sons and a daughter. He is a proper family man, and the world knows his wife was always his biggest support. Luis has a tattoo of the name of his daughter on his arm, and he celebrates every scored goal by kissing it.
