Also, his love-story with his now wife Sofi and all the efforts he took to be close to her is all very endearing. One thing stands out is his desire to win. He himself sums it up saying "Its not that I want to win, I need to win". And yes he does overs Contrary to what many people think - Luis Suarez comes off as a person with a clean heart who faced a lot of hardships in his early years. And yes he does overstep the line sometimes in his desire to win - something which is summed up in the title "Crossing The Line".
Overall, it was a good read. S - From a Liverpool fan. View all 4 comments. Jul 11, Latasha Newcomer rated it it was amazing. The book showed that he is more then a soccer player. I started liking Luis Suarez at one of the most controversial moments of his career - when he stopped a certain goal while playing for his country, Uruguay in the quarter finals of the world cup It's obvious to his fans that he is an instinctive player.
But it's nice to get inside the head of a footballer. It's always better to know the background of your favourite player. The book explains his upbringing in Uruguay, his struggles, his hunger to play and win, his relationship with his girlf I started liking Luis Suarez at one of the most controversial moments of his career - when he stopped a certain goal while playing for his country, Uruguay in the quarter finals of the world cup The book explains his upbringing in Uruguay, his struggles, his hunger to play and win, his relationship with his girlfriend and now wife, Sofie.
It also explains how differently football is played across different countries in Europe. This book tells his side of the story for all the controversies surrounding him. Some of his explanations sound plausible and some fall flat. It's hard to explain the biting incidents.
When you are angry you can throw a punch, you may kick the person or you can do a head-butt, but biting anyone cannot be rationalised. Stopping the ball with your hand can be an instinctive action. But the most controversial of all the controversies was the racist charge against him. It will never be clear what words were exchanged between Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez, but I don't think that Suarez is a racist. I have seen that video many times and of the later hand-shake incident as well.
Its Evra who looks more dominating during the argument and in body language. Add to that the clout of Manchester United in the Premiere League, which was very influential in getting a long ban on Suarez. Suarez has flaws. He has been through a lot of controversies.
And he has been come back strongly after each of them. This shows his character. You fall and you rise again. His first season at Barcelona was phenomenal. And I hope it continues Jan 05, Shirley rated it it was amazing. YNWA Luis. Un joueur instinctif qui donne tout sur le terrain et cela quoi qu'il arrive.
Je dois bien avouer, que maintenant, Luis, je t'aime encore plus qu'avant. Jan 14, Lembusora rated it liked it. Sid Lowe involved in writing this I guess. Easy to read for non-native english speaker.
The story is good, yeah just good. I found Zlatan's is better than Suarez'. Because I Am Zlatan is very good, I believe it influenced the opening of this book. It's similar. Suarez story is a love-driven one.
Had it not for Sofi, perhaps Suarez will only play in Uruguay, unable to made a move to europe let alone winning it's biggest tournament, the UCL. So light, I can even finish reading this in less than a wee Sid Lowe involved in writing this I guess. So light, I can even finish reading this in less than a week. Worth to read, but not collecting one is fine I suppose. Jan 17, Jaspreet Singh rated it it was amazing. The book was a very interesting read into the minds of one of the world's best forwards detailing his story from small towns in Uruguay to the Camp Nou.
There are some very well written emotional chapters in this book about the tears after Crystal Palace, the bitings and then incident with Evra. The real gems are the sections on his interactions with his managers Martin Jol, Rodgers, van Basten , his teammates Glen Johnson! So there would be only one way to battle the inertia of events and the decisions of adults.
And that was by training. Like never before. Luis was playing in the Nacional youth set-up and, if he made it as a professional footballer, later he would have the chance to go and play in Europe, and that way he would be closer. That's the way he had to do it. And he had to start as soon as possible.
I'd have to wake up. So I set to work much harder than I needed to. I wasn't free to go there nor her to come here because of the money situation. So I had to train to the max to be able to succeed in Europe. Two years of training, matches, and of a few transatlantic trips snatched by luck, when he made his debut in Nacional's first team.
And all that stemmed from love. That's how it began and then he started to realise that it was true that he could do it and then he continued to set himself targets, one after another, and attaining them too. That was always his way of playing. I really, really, really want to score. And I guess in life it's the same for me. If I want something, I really, really want that something. And if I don't get it, I get mad.
And so great was his will to score that he cried when he couldn't do it. Like when he remembers to this day over five matches he missed between 20 and 30 chances. Keep calm and things will work out for you. Don't listen to people.
Don't listen whatever they tell you. He relaxed.
He believed. The management of Groningen had seen him in a game with Nacional and signed him. He was 19 and she It was a small city of , inhabitants, cold, very cold, and with "very special" people, closed to foreigners.
They were together again but so much change unsettled Luis and in his first few games things didn't go well. I was fat and everything. Did we make a mistake?
And that was a special motivation for him, a Nacional fan. Yet on the field he has brought only goals galore and glory to every team he has played for. At 18 he was in the first eleven at Uruguay's top club Nacional and played a major role in their league triumph.
Then he captained Ajax Amsterdam to Dutch Cup glory in Holland and transformed Liverpool into a titlechasing team in Almost miraculously, Suarez then overcame an ankle injury operation to kill off England with two wonderful goals in the World Cup. It was the prospect of such remarkable feats that encouraged Spanish giants Barcelona to offer a mind-boggling? Yet what exactly makes this brilliant, but flawed, man tick?
What demons lie behind his 'cannibal' acts, his cheating and his frequent bust-ups with fellow pros, and the clubs and managers who fall over themselves to employ him? Just why is Suarez incapable of steering clear from controversy?
In this first-ever biography on the Uruguayan superstar, renowned footballing biographer Frank Worrall reveals the good, the bad and the downright ugly traits that define Suarez the footballer and Suarez the man.
