Distin And Suarez

The Liverpool sharpshooter has an Iraqi doppelganger, who recently was mobbed by Reds fans on a visit to England.

On first sight this looks like Luis Suarez posing for a picture with Liverpool strike partner Daniel Sturridge.

However, the man pictured is an imposter!

It has come to light that the lethal Uruguayan forward has an almost identical doppelganger from Iraq, who has shot to fame in his homeland.

The Suarez look-a-like spoke on Iraqi television of his recent trip to Liverpool, in which he was swamped by Reds fans in the belief that he was their South American idol.

“When I was in the UK everyone, even the children, said, ‘This is Suarez’ – the whole street,” he said.

“People there are crazy and I have to keep saying ‘I’m not Suarez, please don’t touch me’.”

Although not given the opportunity to meet Suarez himself, the look-a-like did manage to get a photo with Daniel Sturridge.
