Former Barcelona and Inter Milan midfielder Luis Suarez died at the age of 88. He joined Barcelona in 1955 and won the Ballon d'Or after claiming a league and cup double with the Catalan side in 1959. He also appeared in 32 matches for Spain and was part of the squad which won the European Championship in 1964.
"Luis Suarez Miramontes died this Sunday in Milan at the age of 88," Barcelona said in a statement.
Suarez joined Inter in 1961 and won three Serie A titles, two European Cups, and two Intercontinental Cups during his nine years in Milan. Suarez managed Inter Milan, Deportivo La Coruna, Cagliari, and SPAL after retiring from playing in 1973. He also took charge of the Spanish national team between 1988-91. He led them to the 1990 World Cup.
"Saying goodbye to Luisito leaves us with a profound sadness: nostalgia for his perfect and incomparable football, which inspired generations, is combined with the memory of a unique footballer and a great, great Inter player," Inter said in a statement.
