Suarez makes ‘Remarkable Atletico Madrid Debut’

If his debut is anything to go by, Luis is going to have quite the career at Atletico Madrid.

Diego Simeone’s side were already 3-1 up when the Uruguayan made an appearance off the bench in the 70th minute.

It took him just a couple of minutes to have an effect on the game, playing a pass through for Marcos Llorente to score Atletico’s fourth goal.

Later in the match, Suarez won a penalty for himself, going down under the challenge of Fede Vico but, as the striker was preparing to place the ball on the spot, the decision was overturned.

Nevertheless, Suarez didn’t have to wait long for his first Atletico goal, guiding a header past Rui Silva in goal from Llorente’s cross.

In the final minute of stoppage time, the former Barcelona forward netted his second, reaching the rebound from his first shot before any of the defenders to finish past Silva again.

Breaking: Suarez completes his first training with Atletico ahead of Laliga match day

Luis Suarez has trained with Atletico Madrid for the first time.


The 33-year-old joined up with Diego Simeone’s squad just hours after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitano.

As a sort of initiation, the striker was forced to run through a tunnel of his new teammates, as they slapped him on the back.

Suarez was also welcomed to Atletico by Diego Simeone, who led training for the first time since testing positive for coronavirus.

Dream come true for Atletico; ‘Joäo Felix-Suarez’s Duo after fight’

Advertisements

Very rarely does a club find the answer to all of its problems in the transfer market.

Atletico Madrid’s signing of Luis Suarez, though, has gone a long way to doing just that.

Diego Simeone is welcoming one of the greatest strikers of the modern era to the club, one that’s achieved so much in a career that’s included spells at Ajax, Liverpool and Barcelona.

Suarez’s 198 goals for the Blaugrana speak for themselves and Atletico will be hoping he can bring that goalscoring touch to the Wanda Metropolitano.


After all, scoring goals was Atletico’s main problem last season, largely because of the lack of a goal threat up front.

Alvaro Morata, who has now left for Juventus, led the scoring charts with just 16 goals, ahead of Diego Costa’s six.

Suarez has scored more than their combined total of 22 in five of his last six seasons at Barcelona, reaching a high of 59 during the 2015/16 campaign.

The Uruguayan’s numbers fell to 25 goals in 2018/19 and 21 in 2019/20, but he’s suffered from fitness problems and knee injuries in that time.


In fact, during his time at the Camp Nou, Suarez never let his goals per game ratio drop under 0.5, meaning he always averaged at least a goal every two games.

This kind of scoring record is well received by Atletico, who have been searching for a regular goalscorer since Costa left the club for the first time in 2014.

Antoine Griezmann has filled much of the void in that time, but his replacement, Joao Felix, hasn’t been able to back up his numbers.

If the Portuguese starlet and Suarez can connect up front, Atletico could fulfil Saul’s ambitions of challenging in every competition this term.

Suarez has history with attacking partners, having provided Lionel Messi with 47 assists at Barcelona and scored 39 goals himself from the Argentine’s passes.

We could see our first glimpse of this exciting new attacking duo at Atletico when they face Granada on Sunday.

Suarez’s legacy continues at Atletico Madrid

Advertisements

Atletico Madrid have had a clear Uruguayan flavour in the last decade, and the arrival of Luis Suarez will only add to that.


The 33-year-old is the third top scorer in Barcelona’s history and is also Uruguay’s record marksman.

Suarez has become the 21st Uruguayan to sign for Atletico, while he has one international team-mate currently in Diego Simeone’s squad in the form of Jose Maria Gimenez.

Since 2007, when Diego Forlan joined Atletico from Villarreal, there has not been a single season in which at least one Uruguayan has not been a part of Los Rojiblancos’ squad, which is incredible given that Uruguay’s population is just below 3.5 million.

Forlan was a huge success at what was then the Estadio Vicente Calderon, scoring 96 goals in 198 matches, as he helped the club begin a trophy-laden period in their history.

After him, the likes of Leandro Cabrera and Emiliano Velazquez arrived, albeit they failed to leave their mark, and then there were others who have made Uruguay-based chants a regular occurrence in the stands, such as Diego Godin, Gimenez and Cristian ‘Cebolla’ Rodriguez.

Now, Gimenez welcomes a new compatriot in the dressing room, following the departure of Godin in 2018.


Suarez has signed for Atletico on a two-year deal and he will be determined to prove Ronald Koeman and Barcelona wrong for allowing him to leave the Camp Nou.

His performance is yet to be seen, but what is clear is that Suarez has the opportunity to expand the list of Uruguayan players who have made history at Atletico Madrid.
