Sports Desk: Age 36. At this age, many people hang up their boots. But Luis Suarez still wants to prove himself. That's why he followed the advice of his friend Lionel Messi and joined the Brazilian club Gremio.
Gremio introduced Suarez yesterday in front of 60,000 spectators. Suarez was moved by such a reception even at the turning point of his career. Which he didn't expect
The Uruguayan forward said, 'Character, friendship, wins and goals - these are all things I promised to the fans. I joined Gremio with the challenge of showing that I can play even at the age of 36. Because that's what I love to do. Friends Lionel Messi and Lucas Leiva (Suarez's former teammate at Liverpool who now plays for Gremio) suggested I play here. Friends are those who will stand by their own decisions. '
Suarez is walking at the end of his career. The previous edge is no longer there. However, this forward does not want to have any deficiency in his dedication to the team. He said, 'You may not see the Suarez of 2013, 2015 or 2016. Maybe I can't even do a 50m sprint fast enough. But I can create goals for teammates. It's a new team where everyone will see me going into practice with the same enthusiasm as everyone else. '
Suarez joined compatriot club Nacional last year after ending his relationship with Atletico Madrid. The Ajax, Liverpool, Barcelona Matano forward contributed to the club's league championship.
