Reformed Suarez repaying Reds for standing by him

Even if you are not a Liverpool fan, you have to be a fan of Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan is in the form of his life right now with 19 goals in just 12 English Premier League (EPL) games. He is now standing shoulder to shoulder with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best footballers in the world.

I had always thought that Suarez is a great player but previously, I never liked Suarez the man.

His racial abuse of Manchester United's Patrice Evra, him biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic and his refusal to stay with the club during the off-season were some of the things he did that made him so unpopular.

But he is a changed man now. You can see that he is calmer on the pitch, he doesn't react to challenges and he has stopped diving. He plays with a smile on his face, he dedicates his goals to his family.

His transformation has been nothing short of remarkable.

Not only is he scoring lots of goals but he has also created many for his team-mates.

Lots of credit must go to Liverpool and manager Brendan Rodgers for standing by Suarez even though he was a troublemaker, especially when he tried to leave at the end of last season.

But Rodgers trusted Suarez even though so many critics urged him to sell.
