Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan forward and star is comeing back on today to the place he called home for three and a half seasons. Yes, you got it right, we are talking about Ajax home ground, Amsterdam arena. The FC Barcelona forward will make his Champions League debut with the team after playing his first matches donning the Barça colours, Luis Suárez is most likely to make his Champions League debut on Wednesday in Ajax home ground, in Amsterdam arena, where they will take on Ajax after taking a win on Apoel Nicosia on 18th September. This Champions League debut is undoubtedly a special one for him as on Wednesday he’ll be looking to help his new team to pick up a much-needed victory after winning two and losing one in the three first leg encounters in Group F.
After serving out the suspension for the bitting incident in the last World Cup, that kept him out of the grounds for four months earlier this season, Luiz Suárez made his official debut about eight days ago for Barça on the first El Clasico of the season, then he played midweek in the Catalan Super Cup against Espanyol, and then finally rounded out the week on Saturday night versus Celta Vigo in his first Camp Nou appearance. Now time has come for him to play his first Champions League match, which he’ll be doing in a memorable venue.
Certainly it will be special for Luiz Suarez because in Amsterdam he made his first big waves in Europe while he was playing for Ajax for three and a half season. After he first came to the Old Continent and spent his initial season with Groningen — also in the Eredivisie — Luiz Suárez landed at Amsterdam Arena at the young age of 20 years old, and started his journey of making his name as one of the greatest football players in the world there. He played for AFC Ajax for three and a half season from 2007 to 2010, where he appeared in 159 games and scored 111 goals. It was that stint that solidified him as one of Europe’s best forwards and, in spite of his age, he was rewarded with the opportunity to be one of the team’s captains.
After showing his excellent performence at Amsterdam Arena, Suárez was lured to the Premier League by long-time powerful club Liverpool. He delighted the fans at Anfield for more than three seasons and has since beeen playin gat Camp Nou. And now, with Catalan side, his life has come full circle and is set to make official debut for Barcelona in the Champions League at a place where he rose to stardom.
