Alvaro Recoba: Luis Suarez is ageing well

Former Inter and Uruguay international playmaker Alvaro Recoba has hailed Luis Suarez for adapting his style of play as he ages.

“It’s a question of age and I’m not just talking about Luis Suarez here, because Lionel Messi is in that age bracket,” Recoba said when asked about Suarez.

“Then there is Cristiano too, who is a little older. They have all adapted to their changing physical capabilities, and the changing speed.

“Today, Messi isn’t the same player that he was ten years ago. Now he cannot pick up the ball and run through the whole opposition team ten times a game.

“Now he has to play differently, and I think Luis plays differently today too you know…he is running a little less, covering less distance, but still scoring goals.

“Luis’s goal scoring record season after season is incredible, and look, it is normal that he has to change his style of play as he ages.

“He is without doubt Uruguay’s best ever player and he is one of the best in the history of the sport.”
