The 36-year-old is now playing in Brazil’s Serie A for Gremio and has found the back of the net seven times in just five appearances. Since his arrival, the club hasn’t lost a single game so far.
He was at the centre of action as Gremio defeated Esporte Clube Avendia on Sunday and his antics triggered a massive brawl that resulted in army soldiers intervening to ensure the safety of the match referee.
While taking a free-kick, Suarez took advantage of the fact that few players from the opposition camp were still protesting the foul that resulted in the set piece. His opponents distracted, he took quick a freekick to set up his teammate Cristaldo for a goal.
