Love him or hate him, the Uruguayan has proved himself as one of the finest strikers of his generation.
The 33-year-old has produced unreal goal since 2007 when he was a teenager, all the way to his world-beating days at Barcelona.
🇳🇱 Suárez at Ajax (2007-2010)
- 🏟 159 appearances

- 📊 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

- 📊 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 & 108 assists in 270 appearances across all competitions. He's closing in on a double century of goals but that will have to wait a while.
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, and settling for second place behind the great man, his friend Leo Messi, won't be too much of an issue.
