Luis Suarez has said his goodbyes to Atletico Madrid after he played his final game for the club on Sunday.
The Uruguayan was part of the home side who were held to a 1:1 draw by Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano, as the visitors booked their place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
The 35-year-old forward joined from Barcelona after being forced out by the cash-strapped Catalans in 2020, and went on to exact revenge by proving instrumental in Atletico’s monumental LaLiga title triumph last season, when he scored 21 goals in 32 league appearances and finished as the team’s top scorer.
“Thank you Lucho for making us champions”, read a giant banner unfurled in the crowd before kick-off while Suarez was visibly tearful as he paraded the pitch with his family after fulltime.
He will depart this summer when his 2-year contract expires.
