Luis Suarez Living La Vida Loca at Ajax

While other WC players are mostly on vacation or starting training or doing friendlies, Luis Suarez has been going at it in earnest at Ajax Amsterdam.

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!
