Striker Luis Suarez is looking forward to having a chance to play for Watford. Of course we’re talking about the Hornets loanee, who’s currently having a spell at Spanish side Real Zaragoza.
Signed by the Premier League club in 2017, Suarez has had three consecutive loan spells in Spain since then.
But things could change now, since he finally got himself a Spanish passport, and now doesn’t need a work permit for the Premier League.
Suarez has spoken to AS this week, and the big subject is his choice of representing Colombia or playing for the Spanish national team.
“I have already said in several interviews that my desire is to play with Colombia, but that Spain has given a lot to me, my family, my son, and I don’t rule out playing for the Spanish national team. But my dream since I was little has been to play with Colombia.”
Regarding the chance to play in England, Suarez claims he’s looking forward to it, especially because he’s never played in a top tier league before.
“My dream since I was a child has been to play in the first division. In Colombia, I couldn’t get it with Leones. In Spain I have been in Segunda B and Segunda A, one step away from reaching the first.
“My other dream is to play in a top five league of the world like the Spanish league, it’s something that I can get this year if we achieve promotion or next season in some move of clubs. I look forward to playing in England since I now have the Spanish passport.”
The 19-year-old has a good record this season, with nine goals and two assists in 14 games for Real Zaragoza.
