Luis was always brave - we didn't go easy on him: FFT meets Suarez's older brother

Luis was always a very brave boy. I’m six years older than him, and when I was playing street football with my friends, he wanted to play, too, without caring about being younger. At the beginning my friends would try to be easy on him, since he was so young, but as soon as he’d started dribbling past everyone, they weren’t so nice with him!

My idols were Ruben Sosa and Enzo Francescoli, as they played in my position. His idols were Batistuta and Chevanton. He’d yell their names as soon as he’d taken a shot. We also liked the goalkeeper Jorge Seré, and since we both like goalkeeping a little bit, we tried to be him, too.
