The world of football is in mourning. Luis Suárez, former pillar of the Grande Inter of the 60s, died this Sunday morning. Born in La Coruña in 1935, the Spanish striker died this morning at the age of 88 following an illness. The one nicknamed “Luisito” had won the Ballon d’Or in 1960 after another breathtaking season in the jersey of FC Barcelona (176 games, 80 goals). He then offered himself a busy second part of his career when he arrived at Inter the following summer at the express request of Argentine coach Helenio Herrera.
