Luis Suarez has become an icon of the Liverpool faithful since his arrival from Ajax several seasons ago.

He has been hammered by controversy season after season and match after match, but one thing is for certain. That is that he will never give up his fight to be the best he can be.

During the Merseyside Derby today Suarez and his family watched the match from the stands while he continues to serve out his 10-match suspension. The length of his suspension has been considered harsh by many, but he has once again just grinned and taken the ruling and gotten on with his career.

A banner with the likeness of Suarez was hung during the match with the words, “Garra Charrua,” emblazoned above the players celebratory silhouette. But, what does that saying mean?

Garra Charrua is a Uruguayan expression used to signify perseverance and displays of bravery in the face of overwhelming odds as well as meaning to be resourceful, daring, and to never give up.

Suarez is certain to have gained the right to be seen with such a bold statement associated with him, and he is certain to continue to only rise in popularity with the red side of Merseyside.

    Charruas were our ancestor’s before spanish arrive. They au contraire with other native (Peru, Mexico, etc etc) never never were slave or conquest. They never could domesticate. The only way was to kill all of them…or big part of them, we still have some descendant of those survivors.
    Is way we, the Uruguayan are Charruas,you must kill us , to defeat us.
    Our National Anthem it say “Orientales la patria o la tumba”…(Orientales as Uruguayan)
