Luis Suarez plays "Santa" role in sending gifts to Uruguay hospital

Published Add your comment

It is not very often that Luis Suarez makes the headlines for doing something positive, and after sending a batch of 500 gifts to a hospital in his home country of Uruguay, he may have persuaded Santa to put him on his good list for 2014 despite a controversial year, reports the Daily Mirror.

It has been a turbulent career for the 27-year-old with three different biting incidents on Branislav Ivanovic in the Premier League whilst with Liverpool, Otman Bakkal with Ajax and most recently (and notably) Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in Brazil.

But those three incidents don't conclude the controversial career that the striker has endured. He was put on trial subject to claims of making racist comments towards Patrice Evra also whilst with Liverpool.

Due to such a troublesome time during his stint in England, despite his tantalising goals and uncontrollable talent, Brendan Rodgers had no other option but to allow the Uruguayan to leave in the summer with Barcelona willing to offer an eye watering amount of money.

However, it seems to be that Suarez has put his bad boy days behind him and has earned a place on Santa's good list after sending a bundle of gifts which included food and drinks to the Pereira Rossell hospital in Montevideo.

On each box was a message which read: "Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2015 with your loved ones. Luis Suarez and family."

His summer move to the Nou Camp has caused some disorientation for the former Liverpool hitman and is yet to be reunited with his goalscoring threat with just one goal in his first eight appearances with the Catalan club.
