Luis Suarez may well have been the bad boy of the 'Beautiful Game' not so long ago, but he has well and truly rebuilt his reputation at Barcelona. 

The striker is, of course, extremely unpredictable, but he is also one of the greatest players in the world. 

Suarez has certainly played under a number of fine managers throughout his career - he has starred for the likes of Ajax, Liverpool and Barcelona - and he has now named his two favourite coaches.

During a quick-fire Q&A while on international duty, Suarez has revealed, as per, that his two favourite coaches are Martin Lasarte and Oscar Tabarez. 

Both Lasarte and Tabarez are from Uruguay and Suarez enjoyed fine success under both of them. At Nacional in 2006, Suarez secured the Uruguayan Primera División under the guidance of Lasarte, while Tabarez handed him his debut for the Uruguayan national team.

Tabarez was the man to guide Uruguay to Copa America success in 2011. 

Suarez opted to leave two notable managers out...Sorry, Liverpool fans, but Brendan Rodgers failed to get a mention, while the Uruguayan striker also overlooked Luis Enrique, who is his current boss at the Camp Nou. Suarez, then, clearly holds his Uruguayan compatriots in high regard. 

International return 

The talismanic striker starred in his first outing since the World Cup as he struck a late equaliser in the South American World Cup qualifying group against Brazil last week, while he played an integral role in his side's victory over Peru on Tuesday night. Uruguay now sit at the summit of the group as they go in search of claiming a place in the next World Cup. 

After Uruguay's important victory over Peru, Suarez was keen to stress, as per the Mirror, that they can't rest on their laurels in pursuit of success. 

"We are conscious that in the qualifiers there are no favourites, that every single game is complicated.

"We learn that no opponent is as easy as people speculate before the game. It always happens when people label us favourites, it costs us more [to win].

"This is a demonstration that Uruguay will be suffering until the qualifying is over."
