Bestselling football biographer Luca Caioli tackles his most controversial subject yet - Liverpool and Uruguay forward Luis Suarez.
Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has spent most of his career receiving grudging praise while criticism has rained down on him. When in late September 2013 he returned from a landmark ten-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, the latest in a long line of high-profile misdemeanours, it seemed unlikely that Suarez would ever win over his critics.
In the seven months that followed he propelled Liverpool to the verge of their first league title in twenty-five years, scoring 30 goals in as many games. His match-winning performances sparked favourable comparisons to Messi and Ronaldo as he collected the Player of the Year award from the Professional Footballers' Association and the Football Supporters’ Federation along the way.
In this brilliant new biography Luca Caioli provides an in-depth look at one of football’s most enigmatic characters, detailing his journey from humble Uruguayan beginnings to his headline-grabbing exploits at one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs.
