It really is a picture that says a lot about Luis Suarez. On his twitter page, he tweeted “I’m studying English” and attached this photo shown here on the left hand side. In stark contrast to Carlos Tevez, who has been here for years, and still needs an interpreter during interviews, it speaks volumes about Suarez’s commitment to playing and wanting to integrate into English football.

No one is saying Suarez is perfect as he had his own indiscretions in the past, but it must be said that the Uruguayan always puts 100% effort into everything he does. Rather than sulk on the touchline, criticising the food and culture in TV interviews back home, Suarez has moved his family over here and looks like he wants to understand every there is to know about the club he is at and the country he lives in.

This isn’t the only time he is done this though, and it is a testament to his character that he moved away from South America at a very young age. At just 19, and after just one season playing for Nacional’s senior side, he was bought by Groningen in Holland.

He initially struggled to adapt to the lifestyle in Holland. Not knowing Dutch, he heavily relied upon Uruguayan team mate Bruno Silva to adapt to life in the country and after a period of settling in by playing in the reserves, Suarez began to make an impact in Dutch football in the 2006/07 season with 10 goals.
