Former Liverpool hero Luis Suarez scored his 10th La Liga goal of the season, joining an elite club of player who have netted double figures in the league for ten consecutive campaigns.
The Uruguayan international began his career as a goal scoring menace playing for one of his country’s most established and recognised clubs, Nacional.
It was here where he netted 10 league goals and attracted the interest of Dutch club Groningen, where another 10-goal campaign led to a transfer to Eredivisie giants Ajax.
It was in Amsterdam where Suarez made his name, scoring goals aplenty and prompting Liverpool to shell out big money in order to bring him to the Premier League.
After a relatively decent first couple of seasons with the Reds, the 28-year-old exploded during the 2012-13 campaign and followed that up with an astonishing 31-goal return last year.
Despite his high-profile bite at the World Cup, his fabulous form on Merseyside ultimately persuaded Barcelona to part with a whopping £75 million for his services, as per SkySports.
Forming a dream striker partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar to compete with Real Madrid’s very own world class trio certainly was something to get the La Liga fans excited about.
After getting over his early season suspension and lack of fitness, Suarez has been sensational of late and his tenth league goal just one minute into Barca’s 2-0 win over Valencia was a crowning moment.
Ten league goals in ten consecutive seasons – How many other strikers can say that? The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Radamel Falcao and Karim Benzema certainly can’t.
Here is Luis Suarez’s list of goals in all competitions throughout his career:
2005-06: 12 goals Nacional
2006-07: 15 goals Groningen
2007-08: 22 goals Ajax
2008-09: 28 goals Ajax
