Club careerEdit

Born in Gijón, Asturias, Suárez started playing football for hometown club CD Roces, moving to FC Barcelona's youth system, La Masia, in 2011.[1][2] After progressing through its ranks, he was promoted to the B-team in 2014.[3]

Suárez played his first match as a professional on 31 January 2015, in a 1–4 away win against CE Sabadell FC for the Segunda División championship.[4][5] His performance was praised by the media.[6]

On 7 July 2017, after being a regular starter in the B-side's promotion to the second level, free agent Suárez signed a four-year deal with La Liga side Girona FC.[7] On 25 August, however, he suffered a shoulder injury which kept him out for four months.[8]
