Barcelona's Luis Suarez, from whistles to golazos

The Uruguayan forward has scored some brilliant goals since he was whistled

It seems FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez took the whistles aimed him by some fans during the Villarreal clash on September 24 as an impetus. Since that day, the Uruguayan has been key in the three victories achieved by his team over Getafe, Inter Milan and Sevilla, and has done so by smashing in four authentic golazos. In just two weeks Suarez has transformed the whistles into cheers.

Suarez has shown character to get over the bad feeling left after he was whistled. This was the first time the fans turned on Suarez since he joined, but it only took three games to completely turn around the situation. The Pistolero was already key in the victory at Getafe, where he struck after a fine ball from Ter Stegen. He repeated that and some against Inter in the Champions League with his second brace of the season - the two strikers were also sensational. And he put the icing on the cake of his hot streak by bagging a bicycle kick goal against Sevilla. His redemption was complete.

Suarez has six goals in the eight official matches he has played, four of which have come in the last three. The Uruguayan has 183 goals in the 255 games he has played with the Barcelona shirt and has the opportunity to catch Samitier (184) and place himself in the top four scorers of all time - Messi, César and Kubala.

The veteran forward has demonstrated that at 32 he still has quality left. The Uruguayan striker silenced the criticism to claim his status as a great scorer of goals - and a scorer of great goals. No matter how badly he starts, he gets there in the end. The reality is that in his previous five seasons at Camp Nou he never dropped below 25 goals.
