When his contract with Atletico Madrid expired, Luis Suarez decided to return home to Nacional in Uruguay. Lionel Messi sent him a farewell message.
Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez will not return to the European championships after the summer break, for the first time in 16 years. His contract ended with Atlético Madrid, so he decided to return to his training club, Nacional, in his native country, Uruguay. Uruguayan fans campaigned to bring him back with videos and social media posts, with the hashtag #SuarezANacional.
The beautiful message from Messi to Suarez
The 35-year-old played for Dutch club Groningen, Ajax, FC Barcelona (where he won the Champions League four times), Liverpool and, finally, Atlético de Madrid, where he won a another title of champion of Spain. He will now end his football career in his native country with the Nacional. Suarez’s former Barcelona teammate and Argentine superstar Lionel Messi has sent him a message to wish him the best for his future. “Hola Gordon! Well, you’re already there. I wanted to send you a big hug. To wish you the best in this new phase of yours. I know how important it is for you to be here at the Nacional, at home, in your country after so long. To prepare for the World Cup, because there is not much time left. I wish you the best. Now I will have to follow the Nacional from here too. We Newell’s fans don’t have good memories with Nacional. »
