Bestselling football biographer Luca Caioli tackles his most controversial subject yet – Barcelona, Uruguay and former Liverpool forward Luis Suárez.
When in late September 2013 Luis Suárez returned from a landmark ten-match ban for biting an opponent, one in a long line of high-profile misdemeanours, it seemed unlikely that he would ever win over his critics.
In the months that followed he scored an astonishing 31 times, propelling Liverpool back into the Champions League following a four-year absence. The World Cup in Brazil followed but Suárez saw his action-packed tournament curtailed after just two games, two goals and one moment of madness, with favourable comparisons to Messi and Ronaldo once again overshadowed by those with Jekyll and Hyde.
Acclaimed football biographer Luca Caioli provides an in-depth look at one of football’s most enigmatic characters, from humble Uruguayan beginnings to his big-money move to Barcelona in July 2014.
