Suarez Linked With Port!

No, not the neck-chomping Barcelona superstar unfortunately, but 29-year old Spanish midfielder Sergio Suarez, formerly of Las Palmas and who has spent the last three seasons in Thailand: one at Police, and two at Songkhla Utd. He also made 125 appearances in the Spanish second tier for Las Palmas, scoring 15 goals. Not sure why he has a black eye in this picture but possibly suggests he’s the tough-tackling midfield dynamo we need.

His Wikipedia page has him listed as a Chiang Mai player for 2017, but according to SMM Sport, Port’s rumoured interest may have scuppered the deal, understandably so – why move to the fresh air and green hills of Chiang Mai when you could be playing amidst the scenic splendour of Khlong Thoey?
