Luis Suárez to Join Inter Miami, Reveals Struggle with Knee Injury
Luis Suárez has been bidding farewell to his current team, Gremino, as he prepares to make a move to Inter Miami, a decision influenced by his close friend Lionel Messi. At 36 years old, Suárez is determined to make the most of what may be his final adventure as a professional footballer. However, in a recent interview, Suárez revealed the physical toll that his body has been enduring, particularly related to a knee injury from 2020 surgery while at Barcelona.
Suárez explained, “On the outside of my knee I have tension that I had left from surgery in 2020 when I was in Barcelona. In the last stage of recovery, the pandemic came and I had to do exercises on my own and I couldn’t finish stretching my knee. On the inside I have cartilage wear and that hits the bone. It doesn’t generate liquid because I couldn’t even move it, but it gets stuck and I can’t even bend it. The nights before the games I take three pills and before the game I inject myself with a Voltaren (anti-inflammatory), if I don’t do that I can’t play.”
Despite his physical struggles, Suárez has continued to deliver impressive performances on the field, with his latest display being a significant goal for Grêmio in their victory against Vasco da Gama. As he moves towards a new chapter with Inter Miami, Suárez’s departure from Gremino has been marked by heartfelt farewells and celebrations for his contributions to the team.
