Professional football players are generally portrayed through their media interviews as a little quiet, sometimes sullen and almost always guarded, so it's nice to see young lads acting like exactly that within the confines of their clubs.
Liverpool's players have this season been issued a challenge to see who can do the most keep-ups with a tennis ball, and it is entertaining to see them take rather seriously at times the task which hardly compares with the pressures of Premier League football!
Current top scorer Luis Suarez is the star name on the field for the Reds and has left some of the country's top defenders bamboozled at times this year, but his attempts to challenge the highest scorers in the LFC keepy-uppy challenge was not quite on the same level.
During his first few attempts Suarez was in danger of recording the lowest score yet this season, currently jointly held by winger Oussama Assaidi and reserve forward Krisztian Adorjan, who both attained only 15 consecutive touches of the tennis ball before it touched the floor.
Suarez improved with his final efforts to push himself a little higher up the rankings—but he certainly didn't trouble current leader Jordan Henderson, who managed 77 keep-ups in his impressive attempt.
Four other youngsters also managed more than 50, with Dani Pacheco, Raheem Sterling, Suso and Adam Morgan all passing that milestone.
Suarez might not have hit the heights in this light-hearted group competition, but as long as he keeps adding to his 21 goals this season then it is unlikely his boss or fans will be particularly bothered—though his teammates might well find the time to give him a little good-natured stick.
