Luis Suárez's message to Argentine Maxi Rodríguez after his last game

Luis Suárez published this Tuesday on his social networks a special greeting to Maximiliano Rodríguez, who closed his stage as a professional player. In turn, the Argentine highlighted how good it did him to have reached Peñarol in 2017.

“Dear friend, this Monday was a very special day not only for you but for all the people who love football”, the Uruguayan striker began by highlighting.

And I add: “You will retire professionally in the way you deserve it, in a BIG way and not only as a player but as a GREAT HUMAN BEING. Congratulate you on the BEAUTIFUL trajectory “.

Suárez and Rodríguez coincided in Liverpool of England from the beginning of 2011 to mid-2012, when the Argentine decided to return to Newell’s.


Maxi had a sensational second stage in the Rosario team, even becoming champion of the 2013 Final Tournament. However, in 2017 he decided to leave unexpectedly, joining Club Atlético Peñarol.

“It was a very difficult decision to make, because I already thought I was going back to Newell’s to stay. At that moment I felt an emotional exhaustion, maybe I was not 100% because things were happening at the club that I did not like and that did not let me play in peace, “said Maxi Rodríguez in an interview published on YouTube by the Rosario club .

The Argentine said: “So I decided to make an impasse, I’m going to Uruguay to play Peñarol, but I knew I was going to come back because all I wanted was to retire with the Newell’s shirt.”

With the Uruguayan cast, Rodríguez had an outstanding performance, being important in the Uruguayan Championships won by Manya in 2017 and 2018. On December 27 of that last year, the Argentine announced his second return to Leprosy.

“I really enjoyed the time at Peñarol, I think it did me good because afterwards I also came back with great enthusiasm because internally I knew that it was just another stage to be able to enjoy and give joy to the fan and myself; Maybe my time in Uruguay was longer than I expected, at the time the decision to leave Newell’s had been tough, “concluded La Fiera, who this Monday at the age of 40 played his last official game.
