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
- ⚽️ 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

- 📊 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.
