The Nacional striker, Luis Suárez, analyzed his return to football in his native country and told an unexpected anecdote when a fan yelled at him that he was a failure.

In an interview with Telemundo, the “Gunman” told an anecdote of his first outing on a small field, in which the fans are closer to the grass and “all the screams are heard.”

“One that caught my attention was when I went to take a throw-in and someone yelled at me: ‘Failed!’

Along the same lines, the former Barcelona player said: “With all the people, I didn’t look closely at what it was. Yelling at me as a failure doesn’t make any sense, but it’s typical of a Uruguayan who yells to yell at you.”

Despite the incredible moment he experienced on his return to soccer in Uruguay after 17 years, he assured that playing in stadiums with fans nearby “is a beautiful experience” that “I haven’t felt for a long time.”

Subsequently, the Nacional striker also referred to the facilities of the Liverpool stadium and the infrastructure of Uruguayan football in general, after the images of the small visiting Belvedere locker room covered the media in the sports world.

“We have many things to change in infrastructure and it is not for lack of money, because we qualified for the last four World Cups and many things have been improved. We need to invest well. The image we gave the other day, for Uruguayan football, is not good” , criticized the 35-year-old footballer.

Similarly, the winner of a Copa América in 2011, stressed that he “enjoyed” the game and that “nothing changes” changing in that locker room or another: “I’m going to play soccer. If I came here it’s because I knew what that he would find me.”

“But we have to try to change this. Today we are more visible because there is a player who was in Europe for many years and they are watching him. We have to change those details,” he concluded.
