Love him or hate him, the Uruguayan has proved himself as one of the finest strikers of his generation.
Today he turns 33, and what better time to have a quick look back at the unreal goal stats he's produced since 2007 when he was a teenager, all the way to his world-beating days at Barcelona.
🇳🇱 Suárez at Ajax (2007-2010)
- 🏟 159 appearances
- ⚽️ 111 goals
- 📊 0.69 goals per game
🦁 Suárez at Liverpool (2011-2014)
- 🏟 133 appearances
- ⚽️ 82 goals
- 📊 0.62 goals per game
🇪🇸 Suárez at Barcelona (2014-present)
- 🏟 270 appearances
- ⚽️ 191 goals
- 📊 0.71 goals per game
🇺🇾 Suárez for Uruguay (2007-present)
- 🏟 113 appearances
- ⚽️ 59 goals
- 📊 0.52 goals per game
Consider that the regular, age-old acid-test for a quality striker was whether their goals per game ratio was roughly 0.5 or, put another way, a goal every other game. Even on the international stage, Suárez has exceeded that threshold and at Barcelona, a club where he has won every single trophy available to him, the man has notched 191 goals in 270 appearances. He's closing in on a double century but will have to wait a while after recently being ruled out for a handful of months with a knee injury. Suárez is 4th on the all-time goal-scoring hall of fame at Barça, but he can realistically dream of climbing to second. That's some achievement, but he'll have to settle for a place well behind the great man, his friend Leo Messi.
Luis will be watching from the sidelines as his Barcelona side travels to Valencia this weekend as they continue their quest to retain the LaLiga title.
Happy birthday Luis Suárez, an iconic modern striker!
