Luis Suarez wins Uruguayan league title with boyhood side Nacional

Luis Suarez has scooped his first trophy since returning to boyhood club Nacional, lifting the Primera Divison title.

Suarez rejoined the club in the summer midway through their league campaign and has scored four goals so far. He has played just ten games for National this season, and already has a silverware to mark his reunion.

A 2-1 win over Cerrito sealed Nacional’s success. The veteran started the game and played the full 90 minutes, though he wasn’t able to get on the scoresheet. Franco Rosa and Felipe Carballo grabbed the goals, before Julian Perujo pulled one back two minutes from time.

Suarez has now won 20 trophies in his glittering career; including the Eredivisie at Ajax, the League Cup at Liverpool and LaLiga and the Champions League at Barcelona.

And this one will be particularly special for the 35-year-old; because it comes 16 years after he first won the competition as a teenager with Nacional in the 2005-06 campaign.

Nacional edged off opponents River Plate and Maldonado to win the title by four points.

Suarez has played 134 times for the Uruguayan national side and will feature at this year’s World Cup. He is now expected to leave the club before linking up with his team-mates in Qatar.

Suarez returned to his home country this summer having left Atletico Madrid, where he won LaLiga for the fifth time.
