Luis Suarez’s brother Diego Suarez handed Trials at Isidro Metapan
The younger brother of Barcelona star Suarez has been handed a trial and he is trying his luck at El Salvador top division club Isidro Metapan this week with the hope of earning a permanent contract.
Diego Suarez, the youngest of the four Suarez brothers, was recommended by his other siblings, Paolo and Maximiliano, both of whom played for the side. Paolo has helped the club to the league title several times while Maximiliano did a brief stint before ending up at Universidad FC in the Dominican Republic.
Suarez, 22 and 5-11, is a midfielder, who played last season for Huracan FC in Uruguay’s first division. He has also played for Uruguay second-division sides Central Espanol, Villa Teresa and Miramar Misiones.
Metapan general manager Fredy Vega said that the final decision is up to coach Jorge “Zarco” Rodriguez.
“He was recommended by his brother, Paolo,” Vega said. “‘Zarco’ knows that it is just a trial but is coming to watch him. And we don’t sign any players without the approval of the coach.”
This is Diego Suarez’s second tryout outside of Uruguay with the first coming in 2012 at Deportes La Serena in Chile.
