Ever since Luis Javier Suárez Charris joined Watford in 2017, he has been sent away on loan.
Having spent the last campaign at Spanish side Gimnàstic de Tarragona, the Hornets allowed him to join Real Zaragoza on a season-long loan deal in the summer.
Zaragoza have seven goals in the first four matches and three of them have been scored by the Colombian. Two days ago, AS reported his addition has given ‘another dimension’ to the club.
Talking about his impressive start to the season with El Periódico de Aragón, the 21-year-old said: “One works to compete in this way. It had become an exciting preseason and it is very nice to have started like this.”
“I did not expect it. It is my best start at a professional level and I am very happy personally and with the group.”
Following his temporary spell with Gimnàstic, there were several clubs interested in signing the South American on a loan deal. The player decided to join Zaragoza, even though the Premier League side were not so keen on the transfer.
“Watford wanted another transfer, but my agent and I chose it, a place where I could have continuity and have a good year,” Suárez explained.
“I had a good range of options, more than six and good options, but I chose Zaragoza for the beautiful project that Lalo [Zaragoza sporting director] and Víctor [Fernández] told me about.”
“I also wanted some pressure, for the fans and the people who demand [more from] you, because here I know that when things go well everything goes great, but when it goes wrong, people squeeze and it’s normal.
“I wanted that, a club where the only objective is to achieve promotion and I have made the best choice, without a doubt.”
Suárez joined Segunda Division side on a dry loan without a purchase option, but has not ruled out to extend his stay at Zaragoza.
“The transfer was made without a purchase option, but I can tell you right now, because it is my decision, that if things continue as they are, I would love to stay another season at Real Zaragoza,” the forward stressed.
“For me, honestly, I would stay. I wouldn’t think twice, I’d stay here, but there are things around me, like if the club wants me to continue or not, and then there’s Watford… It’s a chain that has to link well to continue, but hopefully yes.”
