Luis Suarez has Pablo Escobar’s Hitman in His Corner

 7 years, 7 months ago 1 Comment

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, easily the most famous drug trafficker in all history, a man whose story is known the World over and the man at the centre of ridiculously popular TV series ‘Narcos‘ was simply put, a ruthless motherfucker. One of his right hand men during his years at the head of the Medellin Cartel was a man they call Popeye, he was sentenced to 22 years in prison for the murder of presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galan in 1989 and is reported to have killed at least 250 people including his own girlfriend. Popeye is now out of prison and has recently sent a message of support to Uruguay’s Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani, great news for the duo that they have a world famous hit man in their corner.


Suarez is on International duty with Uruguay and played in the side’s 1-0 defeat to Argentina on Friday. As if defenders weren’t already scared enough of Suarez, what with his insane striking ability and his love of biting on player’s shoulders, they now have an additional fear that they may end up 6 feet deep like Andres Escobar, the Colombian defender who was killed by drug traffickers after his own goal in the ’94 World Cup.

The video can be seen below and here is a translation of what the crazy hit man said:

“Hello, I am Jhon Jairo Velasquez Vasquez, Popeye, the personal hitman for Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria. I come to send a strong salute to the Uruguayan football team, and champions Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. Receive all my love, my respect, you who are the strength of your people, the pride of your people. From Medellin, Colombia, I am to congratulate them for being great warriors. Receive all my love and respect from these streets. Big hugs.”
