The Uruguayan footballer Sebastián "Loco" Abreu is one of Luis Suárez's best friends. Although he is 10 years older, they met when Suárez started to play. They currently have a familiar relationship, as Suárez is godfather of one of the sons of Abreu. He was interviewed at Catalunya Radio, where he talked about the FC Barcelona player:

Assessing Luis Suárez

  • "I have no doubts he is currently the best one. The level he is showing, both in collective and individual terms, makes him be one of the best ones."
  • "He is the most important player in our country's history."
  • "When a friend of mine is good, I don't call him. So he doesn't need a call right now."
  • "After the World Cup, he lived bad moments. After the experience, I'm happy to see he overcame that."

Personal or collective success?

  • "He is interested in winning. Winning, winning, winning."
  • "If he wins, then Golden Shoe will arrive. But he is not an individualist player."

The performance

  • "Those who know him are not impressed with what he is achieving."
  • "In Groningen, Ajax... we wasn't playing with Xavi, Iniesta, Messi..."
