After a prolific season, Luis Suarez has made his decision and transferred to Barcelona FC. The Uruguayan striker scored 31 times for Liverpool last season and was given the Golden Boot. No one can dispute the quality of Suarez, but his exceptional talent comes with an unhealthy dose controversy. After appearing at the World Cup, Suarez was handed a four-month ban by FIFA after biting the Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder.

Suarez’s link up play and aggression in front of the goal is second to none, and there is no doubt that he will fit in nicely alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar. Suarez blended well with his teammates while playing for Liverpool, and while most people consider the Premier League to have a more physical style, the La Liga can get quite physical as well. Suarez has performed consistently for Liverpool, picking up accolades and awards each year.

While Suarez is still his prime, so it makes sense for Barcelona to pick him up now and create one of the most fearsome attacking corps on the football scene. While many may argue that Suarez reaching 31 goals in the league was not of his own doing but rather his teammates’ Barcelona has taken the risk and have showed faith in a striker who is undoubtedly world class.

At Barcelona, Suarez will have more than enough support needed to achieve the heights reached in the Premier League. The Barcelona fans can definitely count on the Uruguayan hitman to provide them with goals and challenge for trophies on every domestic front, and internationally as well. The fans’ biggest concern about Suarez is whether he can keep himself out of trouble — and his teeth in his mouth.
