Luis Suarez Stops to Play Football with 7-Year-Old Down's Syndrome Sufferer

Luis Suarez Stops to Play Football with 7-Year-Old Down's Syndrome Sufferer

Posted by Juan Gavasa on April 07, 2014

Luis Suarez has been scoring freely for Liverpool as they fight for the Premier League title. The Uruguayan has also been making an impression off the pitch, stopping at a park to play a bit of football after noticing a boy with Down's syndrome playing with a Liverpool football.

A Reddit user under the name of BenjiBean posted a picture of his cousin and uncle meeting Suarez, and told the story of their encounter:

“Bit more background due to interest. Initially he just ran over and took the ball of my cousin. My uncle (pictured) didn't realise it was Suarez initially and thought it was just some annoying man.

Luis was interacting with my cousin and letting him nutmeg him. Yes that's right, my seven year old cousin has nut-megged Suarez.

Obviously my uncle was mind-blown once he realised it was Suarez and asked for the picture. Now my cousin when he grows up has a picture with one of the best Liverpool players to grace Anfield.

So thanks Suarez. What a guy you are. This was around all the Evra/Ivanovic drama, and made my believe he has a true compassion”.

He later confirmed that the incident happened last year at Calderstones Park in Liverpool.
