LUIS SUAREZ ADDS ANOTHER TROPHY TO HIS SUCCESSFUL CAREER

Luis Suarez has ensured his glittering career has gone full circle after winning the Uruguayan title with Nacional – 16 years after lifting the trophy for the first time. The 35-year-old started his career with his boyhood club and won the top flight title in his first full season in professional football, scoring ten goals in 27 appearances in the 2005/06 campaign. Suarez went on to enjoy enormous success, winning an Eredivisie title with Ajax, a League Cup with Liverpool, four LaLiga titles and a Champions League with Barcelona before adding another Spanish title to his trophy cabinet with Atletico Madrid, not to mention a Copa America with his country.

However, after returning to Uruguay with Nacional, Suarez may have left his most precious title until last. His boyhood club secured the Primera Division title with a match to spare as they earned a 2-1 win over Cerrito, a fixture that is expected to be Suarez’s penultimate game for the club. The veteran attacker only rejoined Nacional in July but is now set to leave again on a free transfer once the season finishes at the end of October. Read more…
