Luis Suarez would never have scaled the lofty heights he had during his illustrious career if he didn’t possess an incredible work ethic and a fierce will to win.

The Uruguay international always gives 100 per cent during matches and, by all accounts, is exactly the same out on the training ground.

However, one of Suarez’s former Liverpool teammates has revealed that the current Barcelona superstar has a somewhat bizarre training ground habit.

It’s been a few years since Danny Wilson, the Scottish centre-back who now plies his trade with Rangers, trained alongside the world-class South American.

However, he’ll never forget what made Suarez stand out - aside from his talent - during training sessions.

Wilson reveals Suarez's training habit

“Every day Suarez trained and you see he’s one of the best now, so it’s got to be him," Wilson told Rangers TV, per

"The strange thing was he never used to tie his boots when he was training."

You’d think that Suarez would have been tripping up every two minutes with his shoelaces undone.

Diego Maradona used to do the same thing

However, those of a certain age might recall that another very famous footballer used to train without trying his laces.

There’s a popular old video on YouTube of Diego Maradona, the man some consider as the greatest footballer of all time, warming up before a Napoli match back in the 1980s.

El Diego shows off his some exquisite skills, despite the fact his laces are flailing about everywhere.

Perhaps this explains where Suarez got the inspiration from.

Would Liverpool have won a league title by now if they’d kept Luis Suarez? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
