    He was the best striker in the world, he’d have to literally cannibalize the entire Italian national team for some big club to not be after him.

    Pretty sure Liverpool stood by him too, didn’t they?

    Great interview, I love it when they break character, though, and you see their real personalities and comradery come through:

    **Gerard** The 2014 World Cup comes about, and that season you are the best player in the Premier League. I believe top scorer, too, in the qualifiers, with 11 goals. [*Suarez gives “I’m impressed, well done” look.*] See? I prepared well!

    **Suárez**
    I beat Leo by one. By one!

    **Gerard**
    Oh yeah! hahaha! I’m gonna tell him!

    Full interview with pique

    Gerard:

    “Thank you very much for being here with us.”

    Luis Suárez:

    “You’re welcome.”

    Gerard:

    “We will be talking about the World Cups, and about your career on the national team, which I have researched a little bit. Obviously it would be too much to do on your career at Ajax and Liverpool, but on the national team, not so much. And one of the surprises I came across is that you made your debut with the national team right before we met — when you played against me, against Spain, in the Under-20 World Cup in Canada in 2007. It was in February against Colombia. Tell me about the experience, because you ended up getting sent off. I had no idea this happened!”

    Suárez:

    “Hahaha. Yes well, it was my first year at Groningen, and well … I couldn’t go to the South American Under-20 with Uruguay, but since I was scoring goals and so on at Groningen, they called me up for that exhibition game with the full national team, and that’s when I made my debut.

    There was this thing before the game — they had told me that the only jersey that was left was the number 10. When they told me that, well … Loco Abreu, who was a footballing father for me at the time, said not to take it because it would bring bad luck, hahaha!. And in the end of the game he was right, because I made my debut and …”

    Gerard:

    “Red card, hahaha…. Yeah, but you drew a penalty kick.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, yes, well truth is, for my first game with the national team — we won 3–1 in Cúcuta against Colombia — and the truth is, it was a very good, beautiful, amazing experience to make my debut.” 

    Gerard:

    “Then the Under-20 World Cup comes around, where we met in the first game, 2–2. You score a golazo. And well, you advance. We end up tying, and from there on you go on to join the full national team.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, well, I wasn’t sure if the coach was going to take me with the full national team to Copa America or if I had to go to the Under-20 World Cup. Well, they decided to send me to the Under-20 World Cup, where I knew I would play, and we got to play you Spain. I remember we were winning until the end when you tied it. Then in September, I think, of 2007 the qualifiers started, and from there on I started to play with the full national team, which surprised me because in the first game of the qualifiers I was already a starter.”

    Gerard:

    “The qualifications for the 2010 World Cup comes around, and it’s your first World Cup, I imagine those are amazing memories, no?”

    Suárez:

    “Yes. I think Uruguay in terms of overall level — always in the World Cup there’s one team that surprises — and, well, in that one I think it was us. It was between us and Ghana, and in the quarterfinals we ended up winning against them on penalty kicks. I assume later you will ask me about the handball, hahaha!  

    As for the experience, it was spectacular for Uruguay to get to the quarterfinals. We got to the semis with the whole team in good form, and Diego Forlán, in that World Cup, he killed it. It was spectacular, I think he was our breakout star, and I think, for what Uruguay was, and how Uruguay got there, we had a huge World Cup.”

    Gerard:

    “In the group stage, you played against France, I believe you tie 0-0. Then South Africa you beat 3–0. You score the first goal against Mexico, and you win 1–0, and go through as leaders, I think?”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, we went through as leaders.”

    Gerard:

    “Against South Korea you score two goals, and you win 2–1, and in the quarterfinals, Ghana. Later though, in the semifinals … I also watched the Holland game….”

    Suárez:

    “I think that …”

    Gerard: 

    “You put forward very offensive-minded football — a lot of goals all the time.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, I think that it’s not for nothing. It’s easy to talk now, but yeah, if we would have played the semifinal against Holland with Diego Lugano, who in that moment was spectacular, Jorge Fucile, who was named, I believe, the best left wingback of the World Cup, and me, who had been suspended … if the three of us would have played, it would have been different. We played with many starters of which it was …”

    “Holland had a little bit of luck, but still, despite the circumstances we played 2–3 — and it was a very fair result — but otherwise, I think we would have had one or another opportunity to reach the final. And then I don’t know if we would have won it or not.”

    Gerard:

    “Tell me how you felt after that handball [against Ghana in the quarters], because afterward I saw you in the locker room tunnel, when you saw them missing the penalty kick and …”

    Suárez:

    “Not in the locker room. There, in the tunnel.”

    Gerard:

    “You were in the locker room tunnel, and there’s an image of you celebrating when the ball hits the bar. And you go to penalty kicks, and you end up qualifying.”

    Suárez:

    “Hahaha!”

    Gerard:

    “But, that play — first you save it without touching it with your hand, and afterward you do put your hand on it.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes.”

    Gerard:

    “It must have been a very odd sensation for you because you ended up being sent off and not being able to play in the semifinals, but you did save the team.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, the truth is, it was a bit of everything — of being depressed, of being sad, of being sent off. Because we were going to lose, but if they weren’t scoring that goal we weren’t going to lose, and … well, you get up within 30 seconds when he takes the penalty kick, the satisfaction of … of … well, I took a risk in a situation of which I have been blamed for anti fair play. However, the Ghana player missing the penalty is not my fault.”

    Gerard:

    “Not at all.”

    Suárez:

    “I didn’t kick anyone or anything like that, that’s why I think that I celebrated like that, for having taken a risk for something that was worth it. And I remember that I celebrated it more than a goal.  A teammate on the bench passed out on that play, hahaha.”

    Gerard:

    “Hahaha. Seriously?! I didn’t know that. Who was it?”

    Suárez:

    “Castillo. Juan Castillo.”

    Gerard:

    “He passed out! Hahaha.”

    “A teammate on the bench passed out on that play, hahaha.”

    Suárez:

    “There, in the celebration of the penalty kick, he says he passed out. And well, I left screaming and went to the locker room to watch the penalty kicks. And, the truth is, it was painful watching the penalty kicks in the locker room. I’ll tell you, when El Loco Abreu hits the penalty kick I was with a …”

    Gerard:

    “He does a Panenka.”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, yes, yes. He chips it, El Loco, and we were with one of the kit men. We are watching what El Loco is doing — and we say “good, good, good” — and we see everyone taking off running. We hadn’t realized that we had won! And then we went running onto the field, and it was was incredible. It was a moment that, to me, is one of the best moments I experienced with the national team.”

    Gerard:

    “Then the 2011 Copa America comes about and there I think — you have it even tattooed … Hahaha! … I always joke that it’s the only title you’ve got tattooed … Hahaha!”

    Suárez:

    “You’d do your whole body, you’ve told me, if you tattooed all your titles.”

    Gerard:

    “But it’s true you have a perfect tournament in Argentina. You’re named the best player, you score both goals against Peru in the semifinals. In the final you also score against, against …”

    Suárez.:

    “Paraguay.”

    Gerard:

    “Against Paraguay, that’s right. You won 3–0, I believe, winning a title with Uruguay for a Uruguayan must be the ultimate thing, no?”

    Suárez:

    “Yes, and well, it was a plus that Uruguay had won the 1987 Copa America also in Argentina. And I think that beating Argentina in the quarterfinals was a huge boost for us, a hard hit for Argentina playing at home, but I think that, in overall level of play, it was a Copa we deserved for the the way we did it. We didn’t have any bad moments, and sincerely when we won the semifinal against Peru, we told ourselves that we were in a good place. Paraguay got to the final I think playing the last three games — or no, I think both in the quarter and the semi — playing 120 minutes and winning by penalty kicks, so they were physically tired and all that, and that was a plus for us and I think that…”

    Gerard:

    ” With El Tata?”

    Suárez:

    ” Yes, with El Tata. And well the Copa America, the stadium was full of Uruguayans, and it was an unforgettable tournament, and for me being awarded best player was obviously a plus. I almost got the top scorer too, I think [Peru’s Paolo] Guerrero beat me by a goal.”

    Gerard:

    ” Exactly.”

    Suárez:

    ” Who in the third-place game scored like three goals.”

    Gerard:

    ” Oh really? I didn’t know.”

    Suárez:

    ” Yes, I was paying attention — hahaha! Truth is, it was an amazing tournament, and for a Uruguayan, it’s something spectacular and it’s valued tremendously.”

    Gerard:

    ” The 2014 World Cup comes about, and that season you are the best player in the Premier League. I believe top scorer, too, in the qualifiers, with 11 goals. See? I prepared well!”

    Suárez:

    ” I beat Leo by one. By one!”

    Gerard:

    “Oh yeah! hahaha! I’m gonna tell him! Then right before the World Cup you had a minor knee injury, in the meniscus I believe. You get an arthroscopy done. You barely make it back. You miss the first game against Costa Rica and the team actually ends up losing. And next you’re up against England and Italy, who are strong teams. You play against England, and you score both goals.”

    ” Tell me a little bit about how you felt, because you were coming from the injury, it was the English, and we’ve heard about how they treated you there. I am sure you wanted to beat them and get revenge on them, eh? How was all that?”

    Did he really think anyone would back him after his actions? It doesn’t matter if he were at Liverpool when it happened FFS. Any club would have condemned his behavior at the WC that year.
