What the Uruguayan press say about Suarez' stunning Liverpool comeback

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is back, scoring a brace for Liverpool in their 3-1 win at Sunderland.

Luis Suarez did not waste any time finding the scoresheet upon his Premier League comeback, netting in each half against Sunderland on Sunday.

He had been serving a 10 game suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic at Anfield late last season.

We decided to take a look at how the press and websites in his native Uruguay reported his comeback in Liverpool colours.

The Spectator, Uruguay: "Sturridge, the highlight of the meeting, took part in all three goals. However, Suarez grabbed the limelight."

LaRed21: 'El Pistolero', who finished the ten-match suspension for biting an opponent, having played against Manchester United in the League Cup, this week. Suarez, dangerous as ever, scored in the minutes 36 and 89, both times well enabled in the area by Sturridge, with which begins to form a deadly duo.

El Nuevo Herald: "Luis Suarez returned on Sunday to the Premier League with his usual explosiveness and was decisive in Liverpool's 3-1 win over Sunderland in their usual partnership with Daniel Sturridge."

Vavel.com: "It was as if time had not passed, followed goals and plays with Sturridge, who scored the other goal and two assists provided, like they had played the last games together."

El Observador: "Luis Suarez seems to have put aside bad times. The sanctions, the controversies, the fights, and his future instability are left aside. Midweek returned to the pitch after his 10-game suspension and did very good way. It was highlighted by the press as one of the best players in the game, even though Liverpool lost to Manchester United. A day after Benjamin was born, his second child. Yesterday, Suarez returned to the goals in the shirt of Liverpool."
