01. Luis Suarez (Uruguay & Barcelona)
The controversial Barcelona frontman is one of world soccer’s most technically gifted strikers. Blessed with a fine first touch and tremendous all-round technique, the Uruguayan’s form for Liverpool persuaded Barca to spend US$130 million on the player in 2014. After seeing out a ban for biting, Suarez took time to settle but hit his stride after Christmas, helping the club to the Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble where he scored in the final against Juventus.
There was a time when it appeared as if karma had finally caught up with the front man who has bitten opponents on multiple occasions, most recently during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Luis Suarez struggled to make impacts during his early days at Barcelona following his anticipated move from Liverpool to the Spanish giants, but the Uruguayan star eventually found his form and helped Barca win the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles. Talent has rarely been the issue regarding Suarez, who, to his credit, behaved himself in his first La Liga campaign.
