Spain – This Sunday, 11th, during the game against Celta de Vigo, Getafe fans paid tribute to right-back Damián Suárez, an idol of the Spanish club and Botafogo’s reinforcement for the season. In the 22nd minute of the first half, the fans displayed a banner that carried the phrase “Eterno Azulón (name given to Getafe players and fans)” and another that showed a shirt with the number 22 – worn by Damián – and the full-back’s name .

It is worth mentioning that Getafe beat Celta de Vigo 3-2. This was the team’s first match at home since the Uruguayan’s departure.


Botafogo made the signing of right-back Damián Suárez official last Friday, 11. The right-back is a Getafe idol and was nicknamed “lumberjack” by fans. Damián spent nine seasons with the Azulones and took to the field 295 times. Revealed by Defensor-URU, the Uruguayan also played for Sporting Gijón-ESP and Elche-ESP.
Damián, who signed a contract valid until the end of 2025, arrived in one of the most needy positions in the squad. Botafogo’s current options for the right flank are: Rafael, who is in the final stages of recovery, but has not played a match since July 31st; and young Mateo Ponte, who returned to the club only last week, after Uruguay’s elimination from the Pre-Olympic Tournament. Ponte, in fact, was Bota’s starter for the first time in the classic with Flamengo and won praise from Tiago Nunes.

With the signing, Botafogo reached eight reinforcements for 2024. In addition to the right-back, Alvinegro also announced the signings of goalkeeper John, defenders Alexander Barboza, Lucas Halter and Pablo, and attackers Savarino, Jeffinho and Luiz Henrique.
