Damián Suárez spoke on Tuesday about his future, highlighting that he wants to continue playing for Getafe in Spain. In the program ‘100% Deporte’ (Radio Sport 890), the full-back commented that Boca there were only some consultations that occurred indirectly and also He spoke about his not being called up to the Uruguayan National Team for the last matches of the Qualifiers and for the current Copa América.
‘On vacation until July 3, enjoying family and friends in Montevideo,’ Suárez said of his next goals: “I have one more year of contract with Getafe, and we are talking to see if it can be extended for one or two more seasons. I am very happy to be at Getafe, where I have been for six years now “.
The footballer trained at Defensor Sporting arrived at the Madrid club in July 2015 after spending three seasons at Elche. “I am happy to be in Getafe, I have a good relationship with everyone, so we will try to talk to extend that contract”, he assured.
A few weeks ago it was learned that the Uruguayan is on Boca Juniors’ radar. Asked about it, Suárez commented: “Nobody called me from Boca, it is true that those close to Boca called ‘Nana’ Pablo Curbelo (footballers’ representative), who is a friend and told me that. Pablo was driving it, but no one called me directly “.
And he commented on this interest, although it has not been concrete so far: “Whenever your name appears in a club as important as Boca, it is something nice, but my idea was always to continue in Europe; if it happens (the pass to Boca) it would also be good, but for now with my family we are very well living in Madrid “.
Regarding his balance of the 2020/2021 season, where Getafe could not qualify again for European competitions and instead had to suffer to maintain the category, the full-back said: “This year we were not quite as good as in previous seasons. We suffered a bit, it got complicated for us at the end, but luckily in the penultimate game we won and stayed for another season in First Division ”.
“I feel very good, I am 33 years old, I am in one of the best leagues in the world, playing, I want to continue in Getafe enjoying the great players that are in that league. Luckily I had to play more than 30 games, the coach was counting on me and I also think I won it too, nobody gives you anything anywhere. I’m always working and giving my best, ”said Zorro Suárez.
The footballer had been summoned by Maestro Óscar Tabárez to join the sky blue squad in the first four dates of the Qualifiers heading to Qatar that were played in October and November 2020. However, the player was not cited by the National Team’s coach Uruguayan for the matches against Paraguay and Venezuela for the Qualifiers that were played in the first days of June and is not on the list of sky blue players for the Copa América in Brazil.
“I was very eager and excited to be able to be there, I had been in the previous four games, but this could happen, the coaching staff has its players and their reasons for leaving me out. Now to enjoy the holidays “Suárez pointed out.
The full back, who had been booked by Tabárez in May, commented: “Two days before traveling to Uruguay, Mario Rebollo (Uruguay’s technical assistant) called me to inform me that I was not on the final list for the games against Paraguay and Venezuela. This is football, I have to keep working for today or tomorrow to try to be again “.
“And the Copa América was already difficult for me, the list of those called up for the qualifying matches had already been given and then it was extended to three or four more players. I already saw it very complicated, the player they mentioned in my position (Giovanni González) was playing and there he also saw it more difficult “, said the Getafe footballer.
Mauro Arambarri, Suárez’s teammate at Getafe, has not been cited by Tabárez in the last and recent calls: “With Mauro we have already been together for four years, his growth has been impressive, there is therefore the interest of very good teams. He has a strength that could have been good for Uruguay, but there are also other players in great teams and that is already part of what the coaching staff decides, ”said the defender.
Suárez, who said that his brother Mathías will have to appear in Montpellier on June 27 seeking greater continuity, also spoke about left-back Mathías Olivera, another Getafe teammate:
“Mathías also grew a lot, he is a winger with back and forth, and with a great future. He is still young, he wants to be in the national team. I hope that now he enjoys his family, who have not been able to come to our country for a long time, and then it will be seen whether or not he will leave Getafe, ”said Suárez in relation to the interest of Inter and Atlético de Madrid in hiring Olivera.
Finally, Damián commented on Luis Suárez’s season in his first year at Atleti: “It does not surprise anyone because he has shown it year after year, when I arrived at the Uruguayan National Team he was the first one who approached me and that speaks very much. good of him. Luis did not leave Barcelona very well, they threw him out badly, but he showed that he is still valid ”.
