Luis Suarez stops for kickabout with young boy with Down Syndrome

Who says he’s not a good guy…

LUIS SUAREZ HAS had his fair share of criticism in the past due to a number of unsportsmanlike incidents on the field.

However, the Liverpool striker has shown another side by stopping to play in the park with a seven-year-old boy who has Down Syndrome — because he had a Liverpool football.

The picture below was posted on Reddit by user elf95 yesterday along with some background:

“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 nutmegged Suarez. Obviously my uncle’s 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.”

Fair dues.
