Luis Suárez welcomed by 30,000 fans at Brazil’s Gremio arena

SAO PAULO (AP) — More than 30,000 Gremio fans filled the Brazilian club’s arena in Porto Alegre to welcome striker Luis Suárez. The 35-year-old signed a two-year contract in a free transfer after his contract with Uruguay’s Nacional ended. Three-time Copa Libertadores winner Gremio will return to Brazil’s top flight division after a shocking relegation in 2021. It will be the eighth club in Suarez’ career, which includes stints at Ajax, Liverpool, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
