Luis Suarez, Liverpool’s No. 7.
Kevin Keegan, Kenneth Dalglish… Luis Suarez. It seems after a long time that the Liverpool No 7 shirt has found a person who deserves all the pressure, expectation and the accolades that come with it.
From the time he debuted against stoke we have seen the class, trickery and vision Suarez has, the goal against Sunderland yesterday the icing on the cake. In the 5 games that he has donned the famous red of Liverpool he has 2 goals, at least 4 assists including the stupendous run against Manchester United.
But that’s not only that each time Suarez has lost the ball he has chased after it and tackled for it, he comes deep to receive the ball, is not reticent to do his defensive duties and most important of all does not stop and sulk if the decisions go against him. He puts his head down and goes to work. The tenacity that he has when chasing and tackling to win the ball back is a refreshing sight after months of seeing “Le Sulk”.
The dribbling skills he possesses and the confidence with which he executes his deft touches and complex one twos is just amazing to watch. But for me the one word that describes our new No 7 is Passion, Passion for the club, passion for the fans and a passion for the game, passion which is great to see for the millions and millions of passionate Reds worldwide.
