Luis Suarez

‘My son tells me asks to play with him and I can’t’

Luis Suarez has admitted that his lengthy career means he struggles to play the sport with his son.

Suarez, 36, is now a free agent after leaving Gremio on Sunday and has been linked with a move to Inter Miami to reunite with Lionel Messi but his latest admission has even had him pondering retirement.

“I can feel pain, my body is speaking for me,” he said.

“I want to enjoy and then decide for myself after a long career. I need to rest, enjoy my family… then the destiny will know where I’ll be in the future.”

He went on to add that he now struggles to walk in the morning, leaving people thinking that it is “impossible” for him to continue.

“I have to think that in maybe five years I won’t be able to play 5-a-side football with my friends,” Suarez added. “My son asks me to play with him and I can’t.”

The Uruguayan also added that before each game he has to take three pills and an injection and if he doesn’t, struggles to walk properly.

Inter Miami move looking unlikely

David Beckham has been targeting Suarez as the latest addition to his Inter Miami portfolio alongside Messi, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.

By the time the start of the 2024 season rolls around Suarez will be 37 and his recent revelation makes it seem increasingly unlikely he will make the move to the MLS.

If he does hang up the boots he will go down as one of the greatest strikers of all time.
