The topics to be discussed here are his childhood, about his High school,
Professional career and off the court.

I hope you like this monograph, it is one of the best strikers today, not to mention the


Suárez was born in Salto, Uruguay, the fourth of seven children.

His father, Rodolfo Suárez, right exlateral at Deportivo Artigas de Salto and the
departmental team, worked as a building goalkeeper, and his mother, Sandra Díaz,
after separating, moved to Montevideo with her children Luis (6), Diego ( 11), Maxi
(15), Leticia (19), Giovana (21) and Paolo (23), and worked as a nanny in front of the
Biguá Club of Villa Biarritz.

Suárez moved with his family to Montevideo when he was seven, and his parents
separated when he was nine. In Montevideo, Suárez developed his football skills on
the streets, while also taking up work as a street sweeper.

Luis started dating his girlfriend, Sofia, when he was 15 and she was 12. Soon after,
Sofia and her family left Uruguay to travel to Barcelona.

Luis was a very restless child. He counted in an interview:

"I do not know if it was infumable, but very restless. At school I did not have good
behavior. I was never still. I remember that in the fourth, my mother gave me a
notebook so that the teacher could write there how she behaved. At first, I did not
know I was carrying the notebook. I knew that my behavior was not good "


He debuted at Nacional on May 3, 2005, against the Junior of Barranquilla for the
Copa Libertadores. With 19 years he was transferred in the summer of 2006 to
Groningen in the Netherlands for 800,000 euros. In 2007 he was signed by Ajax
Amsterdam. His character and goalscorer capacity led him, after two years, to be
captain of the club from the 2009/10 season, being the first South American player to
achieve it. He was the Eredivisie's top scorer with 35 goals in 33 games. In 2011 he
moved to Liverpool Football Club for 26.5 million euros, after triumphing with the
Dutch team won an Eredivisie, a Cup of the Netherlands and a Supercopa of the

With the selection he officially debuted in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup and in the
national team in the same year in a friendly match against the Colombian national
team. He participated in the 2010 Soccer World Cup in which Uruguay would reach
the semifinals in fourth place. In 2011 he won the fifteenth Copa América being his
first international title. In 2013 he became the top scorer of his national history,
surpassing the record held by Diego Forlan by scoring 30 goals in the Premier
League, being the best player of that year and Golden Boot tied at 31 goals with
Cristiano Ronaldo.

On July 11, 2014, Barcelona FC and Liverpool FC reached an agreement for the
transfer of the Uruguayan striker after signing a contract for five seasons. The figures
of the transfer did not go beyond, although it is believed that the operation was
around 81 million euros. Sanctioned by the bite to Chiellini in the 2014 World Cup in
Brazil in the match between both teams, was sanctioned until October 26 of that
year. His coach Luis Enrique has a luxury front with Messi.


Suárez joined local side Nacional's youth team at age

14. At age 16, Suárez headbutted a referee following
a red card. One night, he was caught drinking and
partying, prompting his coach to threaten he would
never play unless he started playing football more

In May 2005, at age 18, Suárez made his first-team

debut against Junior de Barranquilla in the Copa
Libertadores. He scored his first goal in September
2005, and helped Nacional win the 2005–06
Uruguayan league with 10 goals in 27 matches.

Suárez was found by a group of scouts from the Dutch club Groningen when they were
in Uruguay to scout another player. As they watched, he won and converted a penalty
and scored a "wonder goal" against Defensor. After watching only that match, the
scouts approached Suárez and said they wanted to buy him, and after the season,
Groningen paid Nacional €800,000 for him. Suárez was thrilled to go to Europe
because his girlfriend, and current wife, Sofía Balbi, had moved to Barcelona; they had
maintained a long-distance relationship for a year and he wanted to move closer to


Suárez was 19 years old when

he joined Groningen. The
Groningen management had
discovered Suárez coincidentally
when they attended a Nacional
match with the intent to scout
another player. Initially, Suárez
struggled because he could not speak Dutch or English, and he played on the
second team to adjust to the Dutch game.

His teammate and fellow Uruguayan, Bruno Silva, helped him settle into living in the
Netherlands and playing for a new team. He worked hard to learn Dutch and his
teammates respected him for his efforts with the language. Suárez scored goals for
Groningen, but he also had disciplinary problems; in one five-game stretch in
January 2007, he scored four goals but received three yellow cardsand one red card.
Suárez especially made his mark in a 4–3 home win over Vitesse, when with ten
minutes to go he subsequently won a penalty and scored two goals. Suárez ended
with 10 goals in 29 league appearances to help Groningen finish eighth in the 2006–
07 Eredivisie. He also scored in a 4–2 loss to Serbian club Partizan in his European

Ajax saw potential in Suárez and offered Groningen €3.5 million for him, but
Groningen rejected the offer. Suárez was upset and brought his case to the Royal
Dutch Football Association (KNVB)'s arbitration committee to try to facilitate the sale.
The arbitration committee ruled against him on 9 August 2007, but that same day,
Ajax increased their offer to €7.5 million and Groningen accepted.

2.3. AJAX

2007–08 season

Suárez signed a five-year contract with Ajax and made his club debut in the UEFA
Champions League qualifier against Slavia Prague. He scored one goal in his
Eredivisie debut for the club and two goals in his home debut at the Amsterdam
Arena. Ajax finished second in league in the 2007–08 season and Suárez scored 17
goals in 33 league appearances, setting up a blossoming striking partnership with
league top scorer Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

2008–09 season

During the 2008–09 season, Ajax head coach Marco van Basten noted how Suárez
played an important role in many of Ajax's goals, but Van Basten was also upset by
the number of yellow cards Suárez received. Suárez was suspended for one match
because he was given his seventh yellow card of the season against Utrecht in a 2–0
win. He was also suspended after a half-time altercation with teammate Albert Luque
over a free kick. Ajax ended the season in third place. Suárez scored 22 goals in 31
league matches and finished second in scoring tables, one goal behind Mounir El
Hamdaoui of AZ. Suárez was also named Ajax Player of the Year.

2009–10 season

Suárez ended the season as the Eredivisie's top scorer with 35 goals in 33 matches
and had 49 goals in all competitions. He was named Ajax Player of the Year for the
second straight year and Dutch Footballer of the Year.
2010–11 season

Soon after Suárez returned from his World Cup campaign, he scored his 100th goal
for Ajax in a 1–1 home draw against PAOK in a UEFA Champions League qualifier.
This put him in an elite group of players, including Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten
and Dennis Bergkamp, to score 100 or more goals with the club. Suárez continued
his scoring run with a hat-trick against De Graafschap in a 5–0 win.

First biting incident

On 20 November 2010, Suárez bit PSV's Otman

Bakkal on the shoulder during a 0–0 draw. Ajax
suspended him for two matches and fined him an
undisclosed amount, which the club said they would
donate to a "good cause". The Dutch daily
newspaper De Telegraaf branded Suárez the
"Cannibal of Ajax". The KNVB increased Suárez's
suspension to seven league matches. Suárez
apologised for his actions through a video he uploaded to his Facebook page.

Transfer to Liverpool

During the suspension, Ajax were in contact with other European clubs interested in
Suárez. On 28 January 2011, they accepted a €26.5 million (£22.8 million) offer for
Suárez from Premier League club Liverpool. Despite leaving while suspended,
Suárez departed Ajax on good terms, and he was given a farewell sendoff after an
Ajax match.


2010–11 season

On 31 January 2011, Suárez signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Liverpool until

2016 and was the club's most expensive signing (£22.8 million) until the arrival of
Andy Carroll (£35 million) a few hours later. Suárez requested the number seven
shirt, but at the time did not realise that it had been worn by Liverpool legends such
as his new manager Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Keegan. Suárez made his Liverpool
debut on 2 February against Stoke City at Anfield in a 2–0 win; he came on as a
substitute and scored Liverpool's second goal in front of the Kop in the 79th minute.
He was one of Liverpool's best players during his partial season and helped Liverpool
go from 12th in the league in mid-January to finish sixth. He finished the 2010–11
season with four goals in 13 games.

2011–12 season

After winning the Player of the Tournament at the 2011 Copa América, Suárez had a
disappointing 2011–12 season by his standards. Liverpool finished in eighth place
and Suárez scored 11 league goals. On 26 February, Liverpool won the League Cup,
defeating Cardiff City in penalty shootout. On 28 April, Suárez scored his first
Liverpool hat-trick in 3–0 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road. He finished sixth
for the 2011 FIFA Ballon d'Or.

Temporada 2012-13

At the end of the season, Suárez was one of six players named on the shortlist for
PFA Players' Player of the Year. Suárez finished second in the final ballot behind
Gareth Bale of Tottenham and was named in the PFA Team of the Year. He was
second-top goalscorer in the Premier League for 2012–13 with 23 goals and
Liverpool's top scorer in all competitions with 30 goals. On 28 May 2013, he was
named as Liverpool's player of the season after receiving 64% of votes in a poll of
the club's supporters.

Second biting incident

On 21 April 2013, during a 2–2 draw with Chelsea in a Premier League match at
Anfield, Suárez bit Branislav Ivanović; this was the second time Suárez had bitten an

2013–14 season, Player of the Year

On 18 April, Suárez was named as one of the six players nominated for the PFA
Player of the Year award for the second consecutive season. On 27 April, he won the
award, becoming the first non-European to win the award. On 5 May 2014, Suárez
was named as the Football Association Writers Player of the Year. He finished the
season with 31 goals in 33 matches, winning the Premier League Golden Boot, with
Sturridge as runner-up, as Liverpool came second in the league and returned to the
UEFA Champions League. Suárez also won the Barclay's Premier League Player of
the Season award. As the Premier League's top scorer with 31 goals, he also shared
the European Golden Shoe with Cristiano Ronaldo. On 21 May 2014, Suárez ranked
number one on "Europe's most influential player" list of the year, ahead of Lionel

Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a study by Bloomberg
of the top five European leagues.


Signing and suspension

On 11 July 2014, Suárez agreed with Barcelona on a five-year contract for an

undisclosed transfer fee. However, according to a leaked document by Football
Leaks, the fee was £64.98 million (€82.3 million), making him one of the most
expensive players in world football history. Barça confirmed Suárez would wear the
number 9 shirt for the 2014–15 season.

The CAS permitted Suárez to play in friendly matches, and he made his Barcelona
debut on 18 August against Club León of Mexico at the Camp Nou,
replacing Rafinha for the final 14 minutes of an eventual 6–0 win in the Gamper

Trophy. Fellow forwards Lionel Messi and Neymar had already been substituted off
by the time Suárez took to the pitch.

2014-15 season

Suárez made his competitive debut for Barcelona on 25 October, starting in attack
with Lionel Messi and Neymar away to Real Madrid in El Clásico. Although he set up
Neymar for the opening goal in the fourth minute, Suárez was substituted in the
second half and Barcelona lost 3–1. He scored his first goal for the club on 26
November in a 4–0 win at APOEL in the UEFA Champions League group stage. On
20 December, he scored his first league goal for the club in his eighth La Liga match,
contributing to a 5–0 home win against Córdoba.

Suárez ended his first season at Barcelona with 25 goals and 20 assists in all
competitions. The Barcelona attacking trio of Messi, Suárez and Neymar, dubbed
"MSN", ended with 122 goals, the most in a season for an attacking trio in Spanish
football history.

2015-16 season

On the final day of the 2015–16 La Liga season, Suárez scored a hat-trick in a 3–0
victory at Granada to win the Spanish championship for Barça and registered 40
league goals for the season to win the Pichichi Trophy, for which Suárez became the
first player since 2009 to win both the Pichichi and the European Golden Shoe other
than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Fourteen of his goals came in his last five
matches. Suárez also led the league in assists, tied at 16 with Messi, becoming the
first player ever to lead La Liga in both goals and assists.

2016–17 season

Suárez opened his goal scoring account by scoring a goal in the first leg of the 2016
Supercopa de España against Sevilla and winning the match 0–2. In the first match
of the 2016–17 La Liga season, Suárez scored a hat-trick in a 6–2 victory against
Real Betis in which he scored his first free-kick goal for Barcelona. Suárez made his
100th Barcelona appearance in a 2–1 defeat at home to Alavés. Though unable to
score, Suárez claimed the distinction of scoring more goals and assists in his first
100 matches in Spain than both Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi; Suárez contributed 88
goals and 43 assists in his first 100 matches for Barcelona, compared to Ronaldo's
95 goals and 29 assists, and Messi's 41 goals and 14 assists.

2014 FIFA World Cup, third biting incident.

Suárez ended the 2014 World Cup qualification campaign as top scorer in the South
American section with 11 goals. In November 2013, Uruguay defeated Jordan 5–0 on
aggregate in an intercontinental play-off to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

For Uruguay's final group match against Italy on 24 June, Uruguay needed a win to
advance to the knockout stage while Italy only needed a draw.[239] Around the 79th
minute and with the score at 0–0, Suárez clashed with Italian defender Giorgio
Chiellini while waiting for a cross. Replays showed that Suárez lunged at Chiellini
and bit his shoulder (Chiellini showed bite marks), followed by Suárez falling and
clutching his face. The controversial incident made headline news around the
world.[242] As the Italian players protested to Mexican referee Marco Antonio
Rodríguez for not penalising Suárez for the bite, Uruguay won a corner and scored.
The match would finish 1–0 to Uruguay as they qualified for the knockout stage and
eliminated Italy
