Now representing the Nacional de Montevideo, Luis Suarez rules out playing in Europe once again. At the age of 35, he is preparing to play in his fourth World Cup – and face Portugal in the group stage – but knows the future will not pass through Europe again, after leaving Atlético Madrid.
In an interview with a Spanish newspaper, Brand, the forward stated that he lived his heyday in Barcelona, where he was part of the famous MSN trio (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) and won nine titles in three seasons – including Dorian, the Champions League and the Club World Cup. . He scored 121 goals in 147 matches, so the self-evaluation can only be good: “I gave myself 12 goals, for the expectations I reached, which were not so many because there were Leo and Neymar. They said that three roosters in the chicken coop can not live together , but we showed that we can do it. I am proud of the career I did, I fulfilled the expectations. After that, the level went down, but even so, I always exceeded 25 goals per season. And I give myself 10 at Atlético.”
After two years at Atletico, he returned home in August and signed for youth club Nacional. President Jose Fuentes has already stated that Suarez will leave the club at the end of his contract, at the end of the year, and there is talk of MLS, but Suarez has left only one guarantee about his future:
“He doesn’t know yet. It’s one of the options I see very close, but now I don’t think about it. I’m enjoying patriotism. I’ve already made my European career and left there with great pride. I had many options before going back to Nacional, but looking at it: Groningen Ajax, Liverpool, Barcelona, Atletico… What better career than this career in Europe? That’s why I couldn’t be in an inferior team after Atletico. It was a perfect path. So it made sense to go back to Uruguay, not because it’s a minor league, but to close the course “.
