Soccerstarz - Barcelona Luis Suarez - Home Kit (2015 version) /Figures
Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz came to the Camp Nou in the summer of 2014 as holder of the Golden Boot and one of the biggest stars in world football. The striker was born in Salto (Uruguay) on January 24 1987, and has signed for five seasons.
He started out at Club Nacional de Football in Montevideo, where he played until 2006, before moving to Holland to join Groningen at the tender age of 19. A season later he switched to Ajax Amsterdam, where he was soon one of the biggest stars. He was top scorer in the 2009/10 Eredivisie and led Ajax into the Champions League, in late 2010 playing five games in what has so far been his only experience of Europe’s premier club competition. Shortly after, in 2011, he was headed for Liverpool.
His goals soon won him a starting place on Merseyside, where he continued his record of always scoring at least ten goals a season in his professional career, be that in Uruguay, the Netherlands or the UK. At Anfield, his stats have improved along with his team’s performances, which almost resulted in Liverpool winning the championship for the first time in 24 years. In a wonderful last season, he scored 31 goals in 33 games to share the Golden Boot award with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Luis Suárez is also the main man in his national team. He led Uruguay to the Copa America 2011 title, where he was also named Player of the Tournament. Along with Diego Forlán and Edinson Cavani, he also played a key role in getting Uruguay into the 2010 World Cup semi-finals.
