What Sirino & Suarez Have In Common

It can be said that FC Barcelona's Luis Suarez and Mamelodi Sundowns' Gaston Sirino are pivotal figures for their respective teams. However, there's another thing the Uruguayans have in common. Can you guess what it is?

Controversy has followed Sirino in recent months and, on a few occasions, he has let his emotions get the better of him in a couple of match-day incidents.

Similarly, Suarez has often been in the limelight for the wrong reasons in the past, but the Barca striker has seemingly knuckled down in recent years and managed to stay clear trouble of late.

That being said, one thing the pair have in common is their love for mate tea. Other than being inseparable from teammate Lionel Messi, Suarez's flask and mate tea cup can almost always be counted as an accessory on the player as he is often seen with it close by.

Mate, pronounced "mah-tay", is a traditional South American tea that is infused with caffeine and has many health benefits. With antioxidants that fight cancer and heart disease, the herbal drink has become popular for many footballers in recent months.

Much like that of Suarez, Sirino has been spotted drinking the tea on a number of occasions, and even takes to Instagram to show his affinity for the health drink.

Do you think Sirino will have yet another stellar season for Sundowns?
