Sue Baker's view...

Dutch football scouts from Groningen spotted the young Luis playing football on the streets of Montevideo. Success followed success as he moved to Ajax and then Liverpool. In his first official autobiography, Luis Suarez explains what motivates him, the controversies over his behaviour and his love for his adopted home of Liverpool was not enough to keep him on the Mersey.

Synopsis

Luis Suarez - My Autobiography: El Pistolero by Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez was seven years old when he started playing football on the streets of Montevideo. That guile and trickery of the street kid, the botija, attracted the attention of scouts from Dutch team Groningen, before the giants of Ajax decided to recruit him into their ranks. After a phenomenal number of goals and a starring appearence in the 2010 World Cup, Suarez was lured to Merseyside and the famous red shirt by another iconic no.7, Kenny Dalglish. From then on, the botija became El Pistolero (The Gunslinger), as he terrorised defences, driving a resurgent Liverpool towards their most exciting top-flight season in twenty-four years. But Suarez's career has not been without controversy. His naturally fiery temperament had him caught up in a very public incident with Patrice Evra of bitter rivals Manchester United, and he was banned for ten games after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic. Here, in his official autobiography, Suarez will talk candidly about the highs and lows of his career, his love of his adopted city and fans, the never-say-die attitude that sometimes makes him go too far, and how it feels to be a big part of bringing the glory days back to the fans on the Kop.

About the Author

Luis Alberto Suarez Diaz was born in the Uruguayan city of Salto on January 24 1987. When he was seven his family moved to Montevideo and fell in love with football. Rapidly rising to a first-team position for locals Club Nacional de Football, it wasn't long before he was plying his trade in Holland - first with Groningen and then superstars Ajaz, where he was named Dutch Footballer of the Year and amassed one hundred goals for the club. In January 2011 Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish paid GBP22.8m pounds to secure Suarez's services, making him the most expensive player for the club at the time. Suarez scored on his debut in front of the Kop, and wrote himself into Merseyside folklore. On 30 March 2014, he broke Robbie Fowler's club record of 28 goals in a Premier League season, and is on course to win the Golden Boot. At international level, he is Uruguay's alltime record goalscorer.
