Luis Suarez Receives Message From Pablo Escobar's Notorious Assassin …See Here
Posted On 12/09/2016
Luis Suarez has received a tribute message from Pablo Escobar’s former hitman ‘Popeye’, who spent 22 years in prison after murdering 300 people and ordering the deaths of 3,000 more. Jhon Jairo Velasquez was once the most feared assassin in the Medellin cartel, and was convicted of murdering Colombian presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galan in 1989.
Suarez is currently on international duty with Uruguay and was part of the side that suffered a 1-0 defeat to Argentina last Friday. And in the build up to Uruguay’s clash against Paraguay on Wednesday, the former Liverpool star was sent a message by Velasquez. Here’s what he had to say:
“Hello, I am Jhon Jairo Velásquez Vásquez, Popeye, the personal hitman for Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria. “I would like to send my best wishes to the Uruguayan football team, and champions Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.
“Please accept all my love, my respect. You are the strength of your people, the pride of your people. “From Medellin, Colombia, I congratulate you for being great warriors. “Receive all my love and respect from these streets. Big hugs.”
