Luis Suárez didn’t have an easy childhood. The absence of a father figure and the problems his mother had supporting the family put him under a lot of pressure to succeed in football. The key moment of his life was when he met his wife, Sofia, when they were teenagers in Uruguay. Suárez explains that shortly after meeting Sofia she had to move to Barcelona with her family, but despite the distance they kept their relationship alive. So, when Barça became interested in him, he realised he could fulfil his life’s dream: to be in Barcelona with Sofia and play for the best team in the world.
