Three days earlier, Gremio had left the audience at the stadium. The last match of the league remained. Luis Suarez has also played that last match against Fluminense tomorrow evening local time in Brazil. The Uruguayan striker scored two goals for Gremio in this match held at the famous Maracana Stadium.
In the farewell match, Suarez scored two goals in the 43rd and 64th minutes. Gremio won the match 3-2 at Maracana Stadium. With this win, Gremio secured second place in the Brazilian championship.
Suarez joined Gremio 11 months ago on a 2-year deal. But the 36-year-old striker's busy schedule was becoming stressful. In 2023, he played in 54 of Gremio's 64 matches. During this period, he scored 29 goals and made 17 more. Among them, 17 goals scored in 'Serie A' is the second highest in the season in Brazil's top league.
Inter Miami is rumored to be Suarez's next destination. Where is his friend Lionel Messi. However, he did not want to clarify the matter on the day of the last match at Gremio's ground. Dayan said giving time to his family and looking after his health are his main goals at the moment.
After Suarez announced his decision to leave Gremio last July, many from the club and local politicians asked him to change his mind. However, he has remained steadfast in his decision by giving preference to the body aspect.
