When asked about his future, Suárez did not respond, but said that he would remember not only Gremio fans, but also those of other clubs who respected him as a rival.
At the same time, he assured: “I am almost 37 years old, this is the year in which I played the most during my career. It was also a year in which I felt furthest from my family. This award belongs to them,” Suárez said through tears after receiving the trophy from Diego Lugano, his former teammate on the Uruguayan team.
