Who is her father Luis?
Uruguayan professional soccer player Luis Alberto Suarez Diaz was born under the zodiac sign Aquarius on 24 January 1987 in Salto, Uruguay. He was raised the middle of seven brothers by their father Rodolfo Suarez and mother Sandra Diaz; one of his older brothers Paolo Suarez is also a professional soccer player, who once played for Salvadoran sports club Isidro Metapan.
Luis was seven when the family moved to Montevideo, and nine when his parents divorced; he found comfort in playing soccer and developed his skills by playing with his friends in the street. Luis was 15 when he started working as a street sweeper, wanting to pay for his soccer equipment.
His journey as a professional soccer player began in his hometown with the youth team of Nacional, one of Uruguay’s best clubs. His exceptional talent quickly caught the eye of scouts, leading to his move to the Netherlands in 2006 to join Groningen; it was here that he started making a name for himself, showcasing his goal-scoring abilities and determination. His performances for Groningen earned him a move to super club Ajax after only a year.
Luis continued to impress at Ajax, establishing himself as a skillful forward; his time with the Dutch club saw him win the Eredivisie Golden Boot for the 2009-2010 season, scoring an impressive 35 goals in 33 league appearances. His form attracted attention from other top European clubs, and in January 2011 Luis made a high-profile transfer to Liverpool in the English Premier League.
His stint at Liverpool proved to be a defining period in his career; he formed a partnership with British striker Daniel Sturridge and the duo led Liverpool’s attack. The 2013-2014 season was particularly memorable, with Luis leading the goal-scoring charts and Liverpool coming very close to winning the Premier League title; Luis’ brilliance was still recognized as he received the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Players’ Player of the Year Award and the Football Writers’ Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year Award.
However, his time at Liverpool wasn’t without controversy; Luis faced suspension and criticism for biting incidents involving opponents, including the infamous clash with Branislav Ivanović in 2013. Despite the controversies, his impact on the field was undeniable, but he still left Liverpool in the summer of 2014, and joined Barcelona.
This move meant that Luis would be playing alongside two of the world’s best players, Lionel Messi and Neymar, forming the attacking trio known as MSN; they quickly became one of the most feared attacking forces in the history of soccer. Luis’ goal-scoring capabilities continued at Barcelona, where he won numerous domestic and international titles, including multiple La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles.
One of the defining moments of his career with Barcelona occurred in the 2015 UEFA Champions League finals against Juventus; Luis scored a crucial goal in the 3-1 victory, securing Barcelona’s treble, winning La Liga, Copa del Rey and the Champions League.
While Luis’ time at Barcelona brought immense success, it also had its share of controversies – in 2019, the team announced that Luis would be leaving the club, and he subsequently joined Atlético Madrid. Despite being in the latter stages of his career, Suárez continued to demonstrate his goal-scoring abilities, playing an important role in Atlético’s La Liga triumph in the 2020-2021 season. He returned to Nacional on 26 July 2022, and was with them until the end of the year, when he signed a two-year contract with Gremio.
Luis has also been a key figure for the Uruguayan national team; he’s represented Uruguay in multiple FIFA World Cups and Copa America tournaments, showcasing his leadership abilities on the international stage. He’s Uruguay’s all-time leading goal scorer with 138, surpassing the previous record held by Diego Forlán.
