Missed his goal celebrations?
On July 28 he scored a crazy bicycle goal against PAOK (Greece) in the third round of qualifying for the Champions League:
Ajax-PAOK ended in 1-1 draw as PAOK's Ivic scored late in the game.
Missed his other antics?
3 days later he got a red card in the Dutch SuperCup final against Twente, for a straight leg kick a la Van Bommel (looked a bit accidental though).
( Here to the videoCollapse )
Ajax eventually lost 0-1 against Twente.
He'll be suspended for 2 next Dutch matches but will play 2nd Champions League qualifying round with PAOK in Saloniki, this Wednesday 8/4/2010 at 21:45 (Greece time I guess).
I'll try to find a stream to watch as I miss this crazy kid and will follow him everywhere!
As a bonus here's great Sports Illustrated article about Forlan and Suarez, contrasting their good boy/bad boy backgrounds and styles.
Relevant quote: "In January 2007, he received three yellow cards and one red card in a five-game spell, in which he also scored four goals. It was typical Suarez." LOL enjoy!
