The future of Luis Suárez is unknown. Installed in the Gremio de Porto Alegre, since last January, the Uruguayan striker is going through a nebulous present due to his physical condition. El Pistolero had been one of the star reinforcements of the Brazilian entity after its recent promotion to the top flight in 2022, but the constant discomfort in one of his knees would have been undermining his career at an accelerated pace in recent weeks until rumors were triggered of a possible retirement at age 36.

Despite the difficulties, coach Renato Portaluppi decided to include him among his starters to face the commitment against América MG and the legend with a past in Liverpool, Ajax, Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid, among other teams, did not fail. It is that the Uruguayan legend sealed the victory by 3 to 1 in the match corresponding to date 11 of the Brasileirao.
Despite Danilo Avelar’s goal that had put the team led by Vágner Mancini ahead, a misfortune by goalkeeper Matheus Cavichioli established the temporary tie and the Paraguayan Mathias Villasanti reversed the story for the hosts. Thus, with 20 minutes to go, Lucho converted from an attack to confirm the local victory.

Beset by pain, near the end Luis Suárez was replaced by André Henrique, but his hierarchy was exposed in a new presentation.
The absence of official voices began to feed the hypothesis that points to a hasty decision to hang up the boots after the striker has scored 12 goals and 8 assists in 26 games with Tricolor. And the president of the institution, Alberto Guerra, was one of the few personalities who referred to the issue to offer a gloomy prognosis about the Celeste’s all-time top scorer: “There is a possibility that he will put on a prosthesis… Yes, the thing is serious”.

The right knee has been a problem for Suárez for several years. At the beginning of 2020, he underwent surgery for an injury to the outer meniscus when he was still playing for Barcelona and, months later, he confessed: “They are stones that get in the way, but it is due to the need to live with the elite of the soccer. Sometimes you don’t realize it and you have a lot of physical wear and tear, I’m hard-headed, wanting to play, wanting to be in everything. There are times when those messages arrive that alert you to stop at that moment, something happens and it is because the body needs it ”.
It should also be noted that the player has a current contract with the Porto Alegre institution, but in the United States they were also enthusiastic about signing him up for Inter Miami, after Lionel Messi’s announcement to continue his career in Major League Soccer.
In the midst of this situation, the Gremio will play again at home against Coritiba next Sunday from 4:00 p.m. for matchday 12 of the domestic championship and it is expected that Luis Suárez will have action again in the champion of the last Gaucho Championship.
