Luis Suarez arrives at Nacional's Uruguayan rivals Liverpool for game – but away dressing room is far cry from Anfield's | The Sun

IT was a far cry from Anfield as Luis Suarez faced off against Liverpool back in his home country.

The Uruguayan namesake is a club based in Montevideo in the national Primera Division.

Suarez and his Nacional side came up victorious, with a 1-0 win.

The ex-Premier League star played the full ninety minutes in front of a local crowed, including his wife Sofia Balbi and son.

But it is the entrance to the away dressing room that has fans talking.

The changing facilities resembled a British Sunday league ground as the star striker strolled in with his boot bag tucked under his arm.

The Uruguay international has swapped the brand new Wanda Metropolitano at Atletico Madrid for the Estadio Belvedere.

One fan said: "To think that a few years ago he entered the Camp Nou and now he enters Belvedere in those conditions, how disastrous."

A Suarez fan exclaimed: "The humility of this man toured the best stages in the world and now he comes to this kind of cattle grazing field."

Another added: "The guy is training for the World Cup in the style of Rocky vs the Russian"

And one laughed: "Even Ronaldinho in prison had better changing rooms than those."

Suarez sealed his sensational return to first club Nacional in August, thanks to a helping hand from his best friend Lionel Messi.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker lent his former Barcelona teammate his £12million plane so he could jet to his homeland with his family in style and seal the deal.

As part of the welcome back, the Uruguayan club put together a three-hour party.

And Messi confirmed he would be following the club's progress from Paris.

The 35-year-old said affectionately: “I want to send you a big hug and wish you all the best in this new stage of your career.
