Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz
STRIKER WITH FC BARCELONA & URUGUAYAN NATIONAL TEAM
Luis Suarez, born Salto, January 24, 1987, is the world’s leading goal-scorer, and two-times holder of the European Golden Shoe, thanks to a stunning 40 goals for FC Barcelona in the Spanish ‘La Liga’ 2015/2016 season. Suárez previously won the prize in the 2013-2014 season whilst playing for Liverpool in the English Premier League. Suarez also holds the record as all-time highest goal scorer for his national team, after overtaking Diego Forlan for the title.
After a budding early career in Uruguay, at 19 years of age, the striker left for Europe, where he soon established himself as one of the world’s greatest players, donning the colours of Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool and finally Barcelona. In his three years with FC Barcelona, he has achieved an extraordinary nine titles: two league titles, three Spanish Cups, one FIFA Club World Cup, one Spanish Supercup, one UEFA Super Cup titles, and one UEFA Champions League.
As a thoroughbred striker, Suarez is a guaranteed goal scorer, though his footballing repertoire also includes an enviable ability to create assists for his team-mates and to pressurise the opposing midfield. A peerless player.
