Class is not a word you would normally associate Luis Suarez with, specially when describing his attitude off the field. However, after being severely punished for his infamous Ivanovic bite last season and an agitated off-season full of rumors, the Uruguayan returned this season to conquer the Premier League and the hearts of Liverpool fans.


Even that one Liverpool fan who dared to burn a Luis Suarez jersey this past summer will be touched when he finds out about the Uruguayan's good deed off the field. Although the events that took place in this story happened last year, the story just broke through after a Reddit post shared this incredible story. 


It is important to note that the story you are about to read happened right when Suarez was spending his most miserable days as a Liverpool player.


It was a typical day at Calderstone's Park in Liverpool for a 7-year-old boy with Down Syndrome as he kicked the ball around with his dad and his older cousin. Out of nowhere came a man who stole the ball away from the young boy to then challenge him one-on-one.  


At first, the grown men were annoyed by the stranger's presence. However, they finally figured out who he was and were shocked to say the least.


On Reddit, the man who took the picture of his uncle and his 7-year-old cousin narrated their particular encounter with Luis Suarez:


"Initially he just ran over and took the ball from my cousin . My uncle (pictured) didn't realize it was Suarez initially and thought it was just some annoying man. Luis was interacting with my cousin and letting him nutmeg him. Yes that's right, my 7-year-old cousin has nut-megged Suarez. 


"Obviously my uncle's mind was blown once he realized it was Suarez and asked for the picture. Now my cousin, when he grows up, has a picture with one of the best Liverpool players to grace Anfield. So thanks Suarez. What a guy you are. This was around the Evra/Ivanovic drama and made me believe he has true compassion."


While Suarez is the current star of the Premier League, this story will only elevate his all-star status even higher and will help erase the negative image he has been portrayed with for several years now.
