“I think I will play the two more years now that I have signed with Colo Colo and then I will stop. That will be the end of I career. It is already decided. I am planning to enjoy my family, because children grow up and move on fast,” the Chilean striker confessed to Colo Colo’s official website.
Suazo showed plenty of humility and self-criticism during the lengthy interview, surprising several readers with the analysis of his own performances: “You can’t hide your performance because everyone can see it. You can see on TV. It is there. I am very self-critical in this regard. I can’t say I’m playing well. It is true that I am feeling much better, I’m moving a little more in recent games, so I will get better”, he said.
“Furthermore, my colleagues need to get to know my game better”, he added.
Finally he also reported his retirement from the national team and said there was no possibility of a comeback. “I think there are players who are better than me. There are players who have great talent and deserve to be in the national team”, said the former Monterrey player.
Suazo played for Monterrey for seven years from 2007-14 scoring 102 goals in 219 games, before returning to the club he supported as a boy over the winter. He has 60 caps for the national side.
