“What Suárez has done for Gremio is a result of what the team has done: worked hard, won games together, and that needs to be said. My job is to do the best for my team. Today was a special day, we won at home, with our fans,” the athlete told Premeire.

“I thank you for the affection and the trust. Suarez is leaving, but he has left everything he had to leave on the field, always the best possible,” he added.

Furthermore, Luisito talked about the lessons he learned playing this season in Brazil after experiences in Europe. According to the Uruguayan center-forward, the Brasileirão is the most difficult league in South America and he mentioned the affection from other Brazilian fans.

“There is always something more to learn. I think here in South America, it is the most difficult (league). There are many games. But we have to have composure to always deliver the best for Gremio, whether in pain or without pain. My job is to play football,” he said.

“I will always remember what I went through here. The affection from other fans was important for me to feel comfortable here in Brazil. All the moments were special, but the beginning was great, I started scoring three goals and now I finish scoring a goal,” he concluded.

Over 50,000 Gremistas went to the Arena Gremio to witness Luis Suarez’s last match at the stadium. Now, the official farewell of the striker is likely to take place in Wednesday’s match against Fluminense, at Maracana, for the last round of the Brazilian Championship.
